Noticed the black flag season pass is available to preorder
Interesting note though it says that a new assassins called "Adawale" will be playable. I read recently about the Sony exclusive aveline missions and how they work. Apparently as we are an abstergo employee we can visit avelines memories as they are pain the database. Makes me wonder if we'll get a few more random assassins thrown in as a sort of "other side of the story" kinda thing

Adewale is edward's first mate......that is definitely interesting.... Is there a dlc where you get to play as him?

Wow, if you can play as Edward, Adeline, and adewale, then it is almost certain that Connor will be playable too. Maybe even haytham

This is definitely definitely interesting. Thanks for finding this! Wow! Finally we get to play as a tough black guy (no racism intended). This could be the most interesting DLC yet!! I really like the direction ubisoft is taking this game.

Season pass may be included in Black chest edition' . BC edition does say all existing additional content. (bound to exist on launchday then)

"- All existing additional Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag Unlockable In-Game Content, including single player missions, skins and weapons"

Adewale IS a MP character. He's "The Mercenary." Although it seems like he has a lot more scars on his chest and an eyepatch, so presumably that happens during or after his journeys with Edward, unless Abstergo added those features to make him seem more imposing.

Multiplayer characters are always customizable, it could be that the version with the eyepatch and scars is a customized version of him.

So, I'm gonna assume that the reason the season pass costs $20 is because we aren't getting episodic DLC, or at least not on the same scale as AC3.

I'd say that there will be 2 SP Mission DLC (each costing $10), a small DLC pack containing all of the pre-order bonuses ($5), and a MP DLC pack ($5). This season pass gives you all of them for $10 less then it would be to buy them separately, just like AC3's season pass did: 3 TOKW episodes ($28 in total), Pre-order bonuses ($5), MP DLC ($5) = $30, Season Pass = $30

In case you're interested, the Season pass for AC3 is still being sold, at least for PC. So in reality, you can buy the season pass whenever you want, I'd assume.

MP is released as an entertainment product designed to influence the masses, SP is not, as you are researching the memories, not just playing them.

Doubt it, a lot of the AC3 MP characters were Assassins.

Single player main story = Actual ancestors memories stored in the Archives. (assumed to be unaltered)

Multiplayer = Abstergo propaganda - edited depictions of characters mass marketed via the 'Abstergo Entertainment media Industry' - Realistic depiction is optional .

Actually, to be honest, I'm not entirely sure of what the MP's direction is this year. It uses the same Animus logo as the AC3 MP does, but the background is a dark teal, and it seems ominous. I wonder if it's still supposed to be an entertainment system released to the public. Maybe it's just Animus 2.0 or something.

Nah, he also looks that way in the concept art, so it's probably his base look.

Or will it just be Adewale with perhaps some other unannounced DLC?

Aveline missions are supposedly exclusive to ps3/4. But might be available for PC afterwards, if the Copernicus and Benedict missions are anything to go by.

Is anyone else annoyed that they already have this DLC probably made already? Dont tell me its being made after development of AC4 as the season pass is only £11.99 and includes all pre order DLC as well.

This should be included IN the game. I hate when companies do this. Money grabbing ****s.

I don't think the DLC is completely made yet, they just have plans for it I expect it to be released a month or two after the game comes out, similarily to TOKW. I actually expect there to be two SP DLC (besides the pre-order stuff), seeing as it is $20.

I don't think that. I don't mind it, seeing as it's the company's excuse to make money up from used game sales.

Now, if they got rid of used games, they would have no excuse.

We heard about TOWK this early aswell.. I'm pretty sure.

Or atleast almost this early, and UbiSoft hasn't officially announced this yet either.

If TOKW is anything to go by, this won't be ready for a couple months after release anyway.

Yep. Wouldn't be surprised if all the dlc were finished being developed the same time as the game. Could be that the adewale and mp dlcs are already on the disc and we're just activating it later. :(

You're assuming it's actually DLC being developer side by side, for all we know it's just stuff they've made and then decided to cut out that part and sell it as DLC.

Which is definitely it. For £11.99 with other things included like probable MP map packs as well as pre order DLC, the Adewhatshisface missions are not going to be long. They have most likely been cut already and they are selling them after. I think that on its own, his SP pack will be around £6.99

Plans for DLC usually starts months before release.

Check the size of future DLC downloads - should indicate if you're downloading content or simple activation /unlock codes.

Some AC3 DLC files were very small - even for short missions.

Jexx21
06-22-2013, 08:34 PM
I'm downloading the AC3 DLC right now.

The only thing that might be small enough to just be an unlock code is the DLC pack that contains the pre-order content, it was 22 MB. But even that is too large to just be an unlock code.

I'd say 22mb is Also too small to be All new single player skins weapons / multiplay characters / 2 naval missions & Mayan ruins missions 'As added content' .

Point is we shouldn't have to wait for months or pay extra for Any content that is intentionally locked on the disc we buy.
