Update: Well, it seems that it’s pretty official about the DLCs of Assassin’s Creed IV and the Wii U. The first reports are stating that those extra packs will not be available for Nintendo’s home console.
How do you feel about this announcement? Will it affect your decision in getting Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag on the Wii U the following month?
Original: Many fans of the successful Assassin’s Creed series and the Wii U would feel a little bit disappointed after reading Ubisoft’s press release.
The French global video game publisher confirmed Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and the PC for the following DLC and season pack:
A Season Pass will be available for purchase at the launch of the game on PlayStation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC and will include the below downloadable game content at a 20 per cent discount:
– Freedom Cry: Born a slave, Adewale found freedom as a pirate aboard the Jackdaw as captain Edward Kenway’s second-in-command. Fifteen years later, Adewale has become a trained assassin and finds himself shipwrecked in Saint-Domingue with no weapon nor crew, starting a new adventure of his own.
– The Exclusive Kraken Ship Pack — Only available to Season Pass owners, this pack includes personalisation elements for the Jackdaw
– New ways to personalise the player’s pirate experience — Additional single player missions, weapons, skins, and collectibles
– More Multiplayer Mayhem — Unlock new characters for an even more expansive multiplayer experience
While it is kind of sad to talk about DLCs without the game being even released on the market, it is also very frustrating to watch companies skipping DLCs, Add-Ons or in rare cases complete features on Nintendo’s new system.
