The first DLC for Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag has been spotted on the horizon, and it’s set to come ashore tomorrow. This first add-on gives us three new characters in the paranoia-inducing multiplayer experience in Black Flag; Blackbeard, The Orchid, and The Jaguar. Let’s dig into the details before we check out some screenshots of the three in action:
Today, Ubisoft announced that the first add-on content pack for Assassin’s Creed® IV Black Flag™ multiplayer, Blackbeard’s Wrath, is available tomorrow for download on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC for $2.99, and is included in the Season Pass.
Three new characters join the hunt: Blackbeard, The Jaguar and The Orchid, each bringing their unique set of skills to battle for the title of best Assassin.
Blackbeard, wielding his sword and short temper, is not to be trifled with. His reputation as a feared pirate is justly received, and his preferred kill moves include using his tremendous strength to throw his targets off balance and quickly finishing them with one clean strike.
The Orchid, a deadly Assassin, grew up in China and served as a military advisor during the Qing Dynasty, honing her murderous skills. She executes opponents swiftly and gracefully with her blade, an extension of her mind and body.
The Jaguar, Cuali, an Aztec warrior from Mexico, took to the sea to fight against the Spanish conquest of Central America. A fighter, he survived the destruction of his community and joined forces with a growing contingent of native Templars who sought renewed peace and order. Driven by a mystical force, The Jaguar strikes swiftly and quietly with his preferred weapon, a discreet axe.
All three characters are available for download from online marketplaces starting tomorrow in Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag multiplayer, where they will join the hunt for survival.
This is also included in the season pass for free if you picked that up for the $19.99 asking price. Look for our review of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game, as well as a look at the differences between them tomorrow, and stay tuned for a look at these three new characters as we cover this DLC pack.
Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U.
