Blackbeard joins Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag on Tuesday

From tomorrow the notorious pirate Blackbeard will be joining the multiplayer of Assassin’s creed 4: Black Flag.

The DLC as previously just a rumour but it will be available on the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC, Ubisoft confirmed today. Blackbeard Wrath is the first DLC for the game and will be ready for download from Tuesday on Xbox LIVE and PC. On Wednesday it will appear on the PlayStation Network.

Three new characters will join including Blackbeard, Jaguar and Orchid set for battle with the Assassin.

Ubisoft tells us what can be expected from the characters:

“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.”

As well as downloading the DLC, you can purchase the Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag season pass which now includes Freedom Cry. There is still no news as to whether Blackbeard will be pillaging the Wii U yet.
