Assassin’s Creed IV Season Pass DLC Cries for Freedom

AssassinsCreed4_FreedomCry

With Assassin’s Creed IV only a couple weeks away from its current-gen console launch, Ubisoft has revealed details for the game’s season pass bundle of downloadable content. $19.99 will mainly get you the Freedom Cry pack, a mini single-player campaign starring Adewale, a former slave turned pirate and assassin, in a new storyline spanning more than three hours of additional gameplay.

Sure, there will also be some multiplayer characters and ship customizations thrown in, but it seems to me that Adewale’s story is the only worthwhile add-on included in the season pass. You may want to hold up on a pre-order and see how much Freedom Cry will cost standalone. Unless, of course, the other DLC catches your interest.

In all, the Assassin’s Creed IV season pass includes:

– All New Single-Player Story: Born a slave, Adewale found freedom as a pirate aboard the Jackdaw where he became Edward Kenway’s second-in-command. Now, 15 years later, Adewale has become a trained Assassin who finds himself shipwrecked in Saint-Domingue without weapons or crew. He starts to meet locals in an effort to assemble a crew and steal a ship. The more he helps, however, the more he is drawn into the Maroon slave community. Forced to face his past, Adewale sets out to free the slaves and bring death to their captors. Over 3 hours of new single-player gameplay!

– Exclusive Kraken Ship Pack: Only available to Season Pass owners, this pack includes a sail, wheel, and figurehead inspired by the legendary sea monsters known for swallowing ships, men and whales.

– A Deeper Single-Player Experience: More of what you love – Single-player missions, weapons, skins, and collectibles for Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag.

– More Multiplayer Mayhem: Unlock new characters for an even more expansive multiplayer experience.

– Save 20%: Over the individual downloadable pack prices.

– Automatic Next-Gen Upgrade: Buy the season pass on PlayStation 3 system and you’ll automatically get season pass access on PlayStation 4 system. Buy the season pass on Xbox 360 and you’ll automatically get season pass access on Xbox One.
