Second Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Multiplayer Event Scheduled to Start Friday

Posted on November 27, 2013 AT 10:39am

A second Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag multiplayer event, titled “The Flying Dutchman,” will kick off this Friday and last through Sunday, Ubisoft announced today.

The Flying Dutchman multiplayer event is for Black Flag’s Artifact Assault mode (think Capture the Flag). Friday through Sunday, players will have a variety of objectives to complete under a few enforced rules. Melee kills, for one, will be deactivated during the duration of The Flying Dutchman. Players will instead have to rely on pistol kills and working together as a team.

The multiplayer’s individual goal tasks players to capture an Artifact while the Glimmer ability is active six times. Their reward for accomplishing this is a a Patron Picture for each playable character. The participation goal is to complete a session in the event playlist, which will earn players the title “The Flying Dutchman.” There will also be a set of community objectives that players can find listed in the game itself.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is out now for PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U. For more on this year’s Assassin’s Creed, check out Ray’s review of the next-gen version of the game.
