Ubisoft has just announced that the first downloadable pack for its pirate-themed Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag – entitled Blackbeard’s Wrath – is now available for purchase on the Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 gamers will have to wait until Wednesday.
This new multiplayer DLC adds three new characters to the game’s available roster: Blackbeard, the Jaguar, and the Orchid, each having their own unique skills. Below, you’ll find each character’s description, alongside a few screenshots.
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.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag has been out for quite some time, being available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC. Currently, there are no news about a possible DLC release for the Wii U version.
