It was leaked last month that Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag might receive a DLC pack which let fans play as the dreaded pirate Blackbeard. Not only was the existence of the add-on officially confirmed according to a report by Joystiq on Dec 9, but the DLC is set to release on Tuesday.
The new add-on, entitled Blackbeard’s Wrath, will give players the chance to take control of the famed pirate as the DLC pack adds Blackbeard to the character roster for the game’s multiplayer mode. The DLC also adds two additional multiplayer characters. Not much is known about these additions other than that they are named Jaguar and Orchid.
Ubisoft's Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is out now on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC, Wii U, Xbox One, and Playstation 4. The new DLC is scheduled for release this Tuesday on all platforms except the Wii U. The add-on will cost $3 and is included as part of the game’s Season Pass.
