Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Blackbeard’s Wrath DLC Available from Today

Posted on December 10, 2013 AT 03:37am

Ubisoft has confirmed that the previously rumored Blackbeard’s Wrath DLC for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be available from today, December 10 (December 11 in Europe) on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.

The DLC will cost $2.99, or it’s free for season pass holders, and adds three new characters to the game’s multiplayer: Blackbeard, The Jaguar, and The Orchid. Blackbeard uses “his tremendous strength to throw his targets off balance and then quickly finishing them with one clean strike,” and The Orchid “executes opponents swiftly and gracefully with her katana, an extension of her mind and body.” Finally, The Jaguar strikes “swiftly and quietly with his preferred weapon, a discreet axe.”

Assassin’s Creed IV‘s first single-player DLC, Freedom Cry, will be available December 17, Ubisoft recently confirmed. The add-on will be free for season pass holders.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
