First Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag DLC released

Multiplayer character pack is priced at £2.39

Ubisoft has released the first batch of Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag DLC.

The Blackbeard's Wrath add-on pack introduces three new multiplayer characters: fearsome pirate Blackbeard, Aztec Templar The Jaguar and pirate queen The Orchid.


Priced at £2.39 and weighing in at 2.40 MB, it's now available to download on Xbox 360. It's also due for release today on Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PC.

Blackbeard's Wrath is available as part of the Assassin's Creed 4 season pass, which will also include Freedom Cry, a single-player add-on pack expected to launch on Tuesday, December 17.

"The fact that ACIV is so good was by no means a foregone conclusion," we wrote in our Assassin's Creed 4 review in late October. "There was a sense that, as the dust settled after ACIII, Ubisoft had missed a beat. Brows rightly furrowed as commentators pondered whether the series had already overshot its zenith.

"Much like the first Assassin's Creed, Black Flag isn't perfect. But the treasure trove of memorable experiences on offer here put all but the very best open worlds to shame."
