Surprise! Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag getting Season Pass

Surprise! Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag getting Season Pass

Assassins Creed 4 Freedom Cry - 5

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.

Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
