The soon-to-be-released Assassin’s Creed III will be a full $60 retail game when it hits store shelves October 30, but a recently revealed system of microtransations may bring your total monetary investment up quite a bit.

Players will get their money’s worth from Assassin’s Creed III’s sprawling single-player campaign and fresh multiplayer options, but WorthPlaying has noted that this week’s US PlayStation Store and Xbox Live updates add Erudito Pack premium DLC for this Ubisoft product.

What does that mean? Well, this in-game content will allow players “to acquire some game items, disregarding your current level.” By the sound of it, players will be able to gain access to higher-level items and abilities by paying for them.

Here’s the full of packs players can buy:

  • 20 Erudito Pack = 80 MSP ($1 USD)
  • 50 Erudito Pack = 160 MSP ($2 USD)
  • 155 Erudito Pack = 400 MSP ($5 USD)
  • 380 Erudito Pack = 800 MSP ($10 USD)
  • 925 Erudito Pack = 1600 MSP ($20 USD)

We’re just a day away from release, but look to hear more about this multiplayer model soon.
