Ubisoft announces the Blackbeard's Wrath
DLC for Assassin's Creed IV:
will be released tomorrow for the Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox 360
editions of the stealth sequel, while the patches for the PS3 and PS4 editions
are expected Wednesday. Here's word on the DLC, which is included in season
Three new characters join the hunt, Blackbeard, the Jaguar and The
Orchid, each character bringing their unique skill set to battle for the title
of best assassin.
Blackbeard, wielding a sword and a short temper is not to be trifled with. His
reputation as a feared pirate is justly received and his preferred kill moves
include using his tremendous strength to throw his targets off balance and then
quickly finishing them with one clean strike.
The Orchid, a Templar-friendly deadly assassin grew up in China, serving as a
military advisor in the Quing dynasty where she honed her murderous skills. She
executes opponents swiftly and gracefully with her katana, an extension of her
mind and body.
The Jaguar, Cuali, an Aztec warrior from Mexico, took to the sea to fight
against the Spanish conquest of Central America. A fighter, he survived the
destruction of his community and joined forces with a growing contingency of
native Templars who sought renewed peace and order. Driven by a mystical force,
The Jaguar fights like his namesake, striking swiftly and quietly with his
preferred weapon, a discreet axe.
All three characters are available in Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag multiplayer
starting Tuesday, where they will join the hunt for survival.
