Adewale leads the single-player DLC

Safe to file under "news that's sure to shock absolutely nobody," Ubisoft has announced that Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will receive a season pass. The season pass, which will go for $20, covers a range of content, most notable being a single-player add-on. Strangely, it will not be coming to the Wii U.

The single-player DLC features Adewale, a freed slave that's Kenway's top crewman on the Jackdaw. Adewale finds himself shipwrecked alone in Saint-Domingue, and gets drawn into the slaving community. The add-on focuses on his attempts to bring justice to the situation, probably through a series of lively, well thought-out debates. Nah, just kidding; he'll probably find gruesome violence to be far more effective.

Other content included in the season pass are a Kraken ship pack; more single-player missions, weapons, skins, and collectibles; and additional characters for multiplayer modes. The season pass offers a 20% savings over downloading all this DLC piecemeal, in the event that you want everything listed.

Before you watch this video, know that you're more or less obligated to enjoy it. A lot of good men died for this glitch. If you can't squeeze a paltry morsel of pleasure out of it, then they died in vain, and you're a monster. A monster that deserves to be banished to the depths of wherever the hell the Jackdaw just came from.
Ubisoft has given out notice that the promised Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag update for 1080p and better anti-aliasing is now available for download on PlayStation 4. It's still something of a shock to my system that such functionality has to come in the form of a title update, but when RAM requirements are being lowered through patches, anything's possible!
