The Betrayal, Episode Two Available Now

Harness the soul of flight to overcome Ratonhnhaké:ton’s most conniving adversary yet!

The Betrayal, the second chapter in The Tyranny of King Washington single-player DLC series is now available! Trapped in captivity by the vicious King Washington, Ratonhnhaké:ton must free himself and seek aid to overthrow Washington’s ruthless machinations. Check out the video below for a run-down on what to expect:

Similar to the Power of the Wolf, Power of the Eagle has two different uses. First, it enables Ratonhnhaké:ton to soar from one location to another quickly and invisibly as a ghostly eagle. You activate this ability by looking in the direction you want to go… if the Power of the Eagle is available to use, you will see a reticle appear with two wings. Once you press the button to activate the ability, Raton will transform into an eagle and streak towards the new location completely unseen! Best of all, you can use this ability while running or jumping to dramatically increase the distance of your jumps or even save yourself from a nasty fall.

Of course, the Power of the Eagle would not be complete if it didn’t include some kind of offensive component as well. Consequently, we’ve included the Eagle Strike, which will enable you to power dive into a foe, ending their life with the swiftness of a deadly raptor! Will this extraordinary ability be enough to ensure that Ratonhnhaké:ton can stand against King Washington and his remaining lackeys Israel Putnam and Benjamin Franklin?

The Tyranny of King Washington – Episode 2: The Betrayal is available for Season Pass-holders or for 9.99! For more information please visit www.assassinscreed.com/dlc.
