Whilst all of the downloadable content for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was announced at it’s launch by Ubisoft, full details and pricing outside of the season pass was not given.
This week, Ubisoft has released the first DLC pack for Assassin’s Creed IV. The first pack is the previously announced character pack that includes three new characters that will be playable in the game’s multiplayer.
The first character is Blackbeard, one of the main characters in the story campaign. The second character is the Orchid, a deadly Assassin that grew up in China, and the third character is the Jaguar, an Aztec warrior from Mexico.
I could imagine each three characters would have a different playstyle, with Blackbeard being the most in your face, strength based character, the Orchid being the weaker, but more subtle assassin character, and the Jaguar being a mixture of the two.
The DLC pack is called Blackbeard's Wrath and will also add new achievements and trophies to the game. The new content pack is available on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and the PC for $2.99. Personally I think a few extra bucks ain’t bad for a few extra characters, but I suppose the argument that they should have been in the game for free from day one is still valid.
On top of this, the second DLC pack will be released on December 17th, and will include over four hours of new single player content, and nine new missions that focus on Adewale, a close friend to Edward Kenway in AC4.
