Play as a new character with Assassin's Creed IV season pass

An Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag season pass will let buyers play as Adewale, a new assassin who serves as first mate to main protagonist Edward Kenway in the upcoming seafaring adventure. While publisher Ubisoft has yet to officially announce the season pass, it was spotted for purchase on Best Buy by AGB.

According to the product description, the season pass includes all planned DLC packs for $19.99, representing a $20 saving off the regular price. DLC will come in the form of extra single-player missions, multiplayer content and “new ways to personalise your pirate experience”.

Ubisoft has also released a new version of the Assassin’s Creed IV E3 gameplay demo featuring commentary from game director Ashraf Ismail, which you can watch below. In a recent interview with ElderGeek, Ismail confirmed the Assassin’s Creed IV release date of October 29 in the US and November 1 in the UK on current-gen consoles, noted that the PC release is expected "a few weeks after", and said the game will be available as a launch title for Xbox One and PS4.
