Wait for it: Ubisoft has confirmed post-launch downloadable content for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag – including both single-player missions and multiplayer content – and you’ll be able to grab it all with one handy season pass.
The most interesting part of all this: Freedom Cry, a nine-mission self-contained story starring Adewale, Edward Kenway’s first mate.
The Season Pass is actually pretty nifty. It will be available at the game’s launch on Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and represents a 20% saving over buying each of the DLC packs individually.
- Freedom Cry: Born a slave, Adewale found freedom as a pirate aboard the Jackdaw as captain Edward Kenway’s second-in-command. Fifteen years later, Adewale has become a trained assassin and finds himself shipwrecked in Saint-Domingue with no weapon nor crew, starting a new adventure of his own.
- The Exclusive Kraken Ship Pack – Only available to Season Pass owners, this pack includes personalization elements for the Jackdaw
- New ways to personalize the player’s pirate experience – Additional single player missions, weapons, skins, and collectibles
- More Multiplayer Mayhem – Unlock new characters for an even more expansive multiplayer experience
We don’t know precise dates yet, but all of the Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag DLC should be released by March 2014, on all five major platforms.
