Ubisoft has today announced the Season Pass for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, along with some details about the content that those who purchase it will receive as part of the package.
On top of a new single player story starring Adewale, a slave turned assassin, players will get the Kraken Ship Pack ("a sail, wheel, and figurehead inspired by the legendary sea monsters"), additional single player missions to accompany the main campaign, new multiplayer characters, and a reduced price over buying the content individually (20%).
The new story (detailed below) will apparently represent an additional 3+ hours of gameplay, and the content will be available across the following platforms: Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, and PC (the press release makes no mention of the Wii U version).
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!
The game itself is set to release on Xbox 360 and PS3 on November 1, with next-gen, PC and Wii U versions of the game following on November 22. Here's the new trailer, Freedom Cry, and a some new screens that accompanied the announcement.
