Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Single-Player DLC to Star First Mate Adewale

Ubisoft’s season of downloadable content for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag has been outlined and priced by retailer BestBuy.

Just like Assassin’s Creed III’s The Tyranny of King Washington DLC, Black Flag will be offering up a multi-part alternative storyline with its DLC. And the star this time out? Captain Edward Kenway’s first mate, Adewale.

“It is 1715. Pirates rule the Caribbean, terrorizing navies and humiliating empires,” says the blurb. “From sinking warships to conquering fortresses, Captain Edward Kenway stopped at nothing to earn his fortune and legend. Yet, the adventures of his first mate, Adewale, have never been revealed. Until now. 

“Pre-order Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Season Pass now for the chance to play as Adewale, a new assassin who will take you even deeper into the real explosive events of the Golden Age of Pirates.”

The Season Pass for this content will cost $19.99, which is a 50 per cent saving on purchasing the DLC packs separately. In addition to the single-player missions, the Season Pass promises access to “multiplayer content, and new ways to personalize your pirate experience.”

I know this has been said before but i cant believe DLC is being announced before the game has even come out, this is why i love irrational games, i know we have had a long wait for bioshock infinite DLC but at least it will come from the heart.

It's never good to hear about new DLC on a game, 5 months before the game is even due out.

by this time i should imagine they have finished the story and are just working on making the game. this being announced just shows their plans for the game not that they are making the DLC already.

Not sure how I feel about a season pass been announced this soon, I knew they would be planning DLC, but to have it already set in motion, just feels wrong.

F*CK YOU UBISOFT!!! F*CK YOU - Take my money for the online pass, take my money for those stupid dlcs. I mean what is that shit ? WE WANT CONTENT THAT IS A PART OF THE ASSASSINS CREED STORY and not PLAY SOMETHING "THAT NEVER HAPPENED"
AC is becoming more and more like CoD, see we have to pay up to 100$/€ each year for the game

For sure - if this DLCs annoucement is true - i'm not going to buy AC4

I'm a fan since the first game and the content you will give me is an "alternative story, which never happened" ? What ? F*ck You

I agree with everything everyone said.

I understand this is one of Ubisoft's major cash cows, but they are going to milk to dry if they aren't careful.

Just as a note. Ubisoft hasn't announced this yet, not officially. This is all from a retailer. Not sure if that makes much difference, mind...

Wow 50% discount. I've never been a big fan of Assassin Creed DLC, but I hope they keep it single-player.

Ubisoft when will you learn, I honestly will be giving this a miss. Loved Creed but you ruined it with a crap Multiplayer experience, On disc DLC that you have to pay for to unlock with rip off passes and a nonsensical campaign that left you not caring what the fuck happened...hang your head in shame.

I waited for a sale on the AC3 season pass, I will either do the same here, or just never pick it up. I'm a little soured on Season Passes since the Borderlands 2 one is the only one I have felt is mostly worth the price.

I'm a little annoyed I bought the BioShock Infinite one sight unseen. I am still beating myself up over that, particularly since they haven't made a goddamn peep about it.

How about some real DLC like the pack in AC2? This alternate storyline shit is garbage. The story in the DLC for AC3 sucked. That whole game sucked.

If its a 50% saving. Even if there are 3 packs. That's some expensive dlc

If people didn't buy them, maybe we'd be getting that content for free with the shipping version of the game, you know, like back in the day...

Yea, people have to fucking stop buying those season passes. But with the success of BL2's, GoW3's and BF3's season passes, I don't see that happening anytime soon.

After the AC3 DLC I'll pass. The multiplayer skins were cool, but the George Washington thing was extremely lame.
Bring back Brotherhood maps!

I got fuc*** by a glitch in AC3, preventing me to get my DNA sync to 100%.
I'm not playing another 60+ hours to do everything again, so unless a patch is released, I'm done with AC games and Ubi in general.

So, on topic... Not surprised at all there is already a sesason pass planned, but I couldn't care less right now.

Huehuehuehuehuehue, the game has a couple months to go and the DLC is already being planned.

I'll wait before doing anything though, as the only pass I found worth it was Borderlands 2.

@5 whoa dude, calm down there. Turns out you don't NEED to buy the DLC for every single game. I personally like the "alternative timeline"-DLC concept, as I don't want to have to pay a ton of money for DLC that continues the main story when I should've gotten it on the retail disc in the first place.

50% savings is still a lot though. Usually passes only give you a 20% savings.

Either way, I'll never understand why Devs begin to work on DLC months before the game comes out...

If this is a prequel shouldn't it be Assassins Creed 2.5 and not Assassins Creed IV?

@5 Holy Christ. You need to go take your meds now. I agree with most of the comments here, the dlc should not be announced half a year before the game comes out. I don't think ill be bothering with this one.

This dlc looks fun. Will this season pass also be on the xbox one because I'm getting the next gen version of ac4. Seeing as ac3 was one of the best games of last year looking forward to this.

Honestly will you people stop bitching?

1. AC will never become CoD for 1 simple reason, THEY GET BETTER WITH EVERY FUCKING GAME.

Unlike cod which is the same bullshit every damn year to where. AC improves there combat/free running/ landscapes/ the general everything about the game and makes it more epic, look consumers said " dude naval battles were the shining star of AC3 we want more! " so what did UBISOFT do? Make a damn pirate game so you can get all the watery cannons seasick goodness that it entails.

I'd rather see 15 more AC games then another fucking CoD, I dident buy the last cod I'm not buying the new 1.

But on the lighter note I seriously am wondering if the season pass/preorder game bonuses are going to be on Next gen version of AC cuz I'm still cliffhanging on if I'm gunna but it for XB360 or PS4 lol

this shows the industries greed. 5 months before its release and they are outlining dlc? absurd. this shows this content is being developed along side the main game therfor SHOULD be part of the game. the industry has gotten sooo bad and microsoft is the worst of them. no xbox one for me. my next system will be a ps3 then im done gaming. as for AC i have the first one and will download and keep 2 in july but no more AC games after that for me. besides ubisoft pumps out one AC game a year. as bad as the cod series and im done with that too.

I'm convinced now that it won't be long before someone announces DLC BEFORE the actual game itself.

ive said it before and il say it now. the franchise has gone to shits, it no longer makes sense, nobody wants sailing in an ac game, nobody wants MP in ac game, NOBODY wants MP DLC IN AN AC GAME!
in some ways im happy that i hated ac3 so much, i have no interest in this franchise anymore until they drop the MP + dlc chievos and focus on assassins being cool and fighting real templars- not sailing around like assassins of the carribean. im pretty sure templars were strictly a brithish thing any way, not sure how they became pirates.

p.s dont destroy splinter cell for me, its the only other ubi game il play.

"Pre-order Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Season Pass now"
So now they want you to preorder season passes, so its like a preorder on a preorder. How do you even preorder a season pass? Is it already on the market place?

@29 - they don't get better at all! Ac2 was the high point in the franchise, after then you weren't an assassin you were just some guy who upgraded stables and collected books... Brotherhood and revelations were THAT bad I haven't even bothered with 3. The story went stupid and the games had less polish than the original (rushed out annual cash cow releases)
