Season Pass and DLC Announced for Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag

DLC has been announced today for Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag, along with Season Pass details. Freedom Cry is the first story-based DLC revealed to us, containing nine additional missions with a self-contained story featuring Edward Kenway's first mate Adewale.

Quote from
Born a slave, Adewale found freedom as a pirate aboard the Jackdaw as Captain Edward Kenway’s second-in-command. Fifteen years later, Adewale has become a trained assassin and finds himself shipwrecked in Saint-Domingue with no weapon nor crew, starting a new adventure of his own.

The trailer below gives a deeper look:

The Season Pass will give access to Freedom Cry, as well as:

  • The Exclusive Kraken Ship Pack – Only available to Season Pass owners, this pack includes personalization elements for the Jackdaw
  • New ways to personalize the player’s pirate experience – Additional single player missions, weapons, skins, and collectibles
  • More Multiplayer Mayhem – Unlock new characters for an even more expansive multiplayer experience
You'll be able to grab yourself a Season Pass upon launch for $19.99, which ends up being a savings of 20% if you were to buy the content on an individual basis. A further discount is available to anyone who pre-orders the Digital Deluxe Edition from the UPlay shop, an additional 25% off of the Season Pass.

For those unfamiliar with the newest addition to the legendary series, this installation will tell the story of Edward Kenway. A young British man with a thirst for danger and adventure, he falls from privateering for the Royal Navy into piracy as the war between the major Empires comes to an end. You may remember his mentions in Assassin's Creed III, in which he is revealed to be father of Haytham Kenway.

We'll see the game on October 29th of this year, for PS3/4, Xbox 360/One, Wii U, and PC. Pre-orders are already available at Stay tuned to Curse for upcoming details!
