Surprise! Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag getting Season Pass8 Oct 2013
In a move that’s set to rock the worlds of those who’ve been living in caves for the past five years, Ubisoft have announced a Season Pass for Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag.
Said Season Pass will cost €19.99 (a 20% saving over buying the included packs individually). It’s not entirely clear how much will be included, but we do know it’ll offer multiplayer characters, extra single-player bits and bobs, and a three hour single-player story starring former slave-turned-Assassin Adewale, who serves as Edward Kenway’s first mate. Oh, and if you buy the Season Pass you’ll also get a pack that gives you a Kraken-inspired sail, figurehead, and wheel for your ship.
The Adewale DLC, titled Freedom Cry, sees the poor chap shipwrecked on Saint-Domingue without weapons or crew. He tries to acquire a ship and recruit the locals to serve as crew, but gets more and more drawn into the Maroon slave community until he dedicates himself to freeing them and murdering their captors. I somewhat doubt this’ll be the only single-player DLC coming for Assassin’s Creed 4, but hey, I might be wrong.
You can see a trailer and some screens for it below. Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is due out on 22 November.
