If you're all in for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag , you'll want to consider picking up the Season Pass.
Ubisoft has announced the downloadable content lineup for the upcoming game, and they also revealed that Black Flag will have a Season Pass. No real surprise there.
The DLC will be available for all platforms (PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC), although no mention was made of the Wii U. The primary portion of DLC will focus on the nine-mission single-player storyline called Freedom Cry. This takes place 15 years after the events of the main campaign, and players will assume the role of Edward Kenway's first mate, Adewale. At that point, he has become a fully trained assassin, but he finds himself shipwrecked in Saint-Domingue with no weapons and no crew. Later DLC will provide more single-player missions, weapons, skins and collectibles, along with new characters for the multiplayer modes, if you're interested.
The Season Pass will give you access to the Kraken Ship Pack as well, which gives you more customization options for Kenway's ship. Remember that this content will not be available to purchase separately. All of Black Flag 's DLC will be released before March 2014 and the Season Pass will be ready to go at launch. Ubisoft didn't give us an exact price, but they said it would be 20 percent less than if you bought each expansion pack individually. Those savings sound pretty standard.
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will be ready to go on current-gen consoles and PC on October 29, and it'll be a launch game for the PS4 and Xbox One. You're getting the next-gen iteration, right?
