Hi everybody,

I have purchased AC4BF Limited Edition in the EMEIA : CIS segment and have been granted access to exclusive Sacrificed Island location.

After that I obtained a Season Pass.

Whether I received the Kraken/Crusader/some other ***t/ ship packs, still have no access to the Aveline missions DLC, Black and Mystery Islands (and corresponding customization items).

I bet this is suppose to be downloaded somehow, any ideas on that?

From what I've read the Lmt Ed is primarily a souvenir pack, containing...



A STUNNING 18" ASSASSIN STATUE
AN EMBROIDERED 28"X 48" FLAG
EXCLUSIVE 80-PAGE ART BOOK
STEELBOOK GAME CASE AND EPIC GAME SOUNDTRAC



The Season Pass gets you 20% off all DLC, and includes...



The Assassin’s CreedŽ IV Black Flag™ Season Pass gives you access to the exclusive Kraken Ship pack, a new 3+ hour single player story featuring Adewale, an ex-slave turned Assassin, plus multiplayer characters and more.

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

All New Single Player Story: (Freedom Cry)
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!

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

As far as I know, Aveline DLC, Black and Mystery Islands are not part of the Season Pass but part of other AC4BF Editions like, for example, the Digital Deluxe

Digital Deluxe is not available in the US and not as good a deal from what I've read as the Gold Edition. Some have even said they changed the name of the DD version to Gold Edition. I don't know if that's true, but I don't see a DD version on Steam, and Steam of course is global. However it may only show versions available in your country. I have the Gold Edition and it comes with Season Pass, Aveline, the 3 islands, Crusader and Florentine packs, along with other goodies like Death Vessel and Kraken packs. It's an $80 package, but the extra $20 pays for the Season Pass itself, so you basically get all the other stuff free.

The Gold edition is nothing else than the DDE+ Season Pass for the US market and this is why you have Aveline etc.: due to the DDE part of the Gold Edition;)

Yeah that's pretty much what I read/said, but I wouldn't call a free $20 pass "nothing". In fact it had a lot of people in Europe and elsewhere pretty pissed that they couldn't get the same deal.

Besides that Aveline is about a 10 minute long game play. I believe it's a short playable teaser of the dlc that will be for sale in the future. Not a big loss if you didn't get it unless you payed for it!!!

I was talking about the content included and why Sentry_Omega doesn't have the content he is searching ;)

It's short, but not THAT short. It's a brief 3 mission mini campaign.

I certainly hope they fleshed out Freedom Cry better though. Aveline's missions are short, lack challenge, do not require stealth, and have no optional objectives whatsoever. The maps they used aren't bad, but they're wasted on very mediocre gameplay.

Damn it you're right...

So its not a part of season pass initially.

Will they release a DLC similar to "The Hidden Secrets Pack" AC3 so it becomes a part of a season pass?
