As of yesterday you can now pick up the Blackbeard’s Wrath multiplayer DLC for Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. This pack adds three new characters for you to choose from in the multiplayer portion of the game.
The first character up shares the name of “The Jaguar”.
Cuali (a name which means “good” in Nahuatl) is an Aztec warrior from Mexico, who took to the sea, joining any mission that would allow him to combat the Spanish conquest of central America. A fighter, he survived the destruction of his community and went on to join forces with a growing contingency of native Templars who sought renewed peace and order.
The second character is the “Orchid”.
The daughter of a rebel, she grew up fighting. As a young woman, she developed a talent for negotiation, and a knack for languages. She broke ties with her family to serve as a military advisor for a Qing dynasty general her father opposed, and ultimately performed so well, she was granted a diplomatic post. Using piracy as a cover for her political activities she traveled the world, eventually banding with the Templars to serve her ultimate desire for negotiated order.
And lastly, the man who perhaps feeds on the fear of his enemies. Blackbeard himself.
Gruff, and short-tempered, Blackbeard uses fear to get his way. Although little is known of his early life, he is believed to have been born between 1680 and 1685, in Bristol, and took to the sea from as young as sixteen years of age. By 1717, he had become a pirate icon.
Blackbeard’s Wrath is available on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, PlayStation Network, and on the PC for $2.99 / 15th. It is also included as part of the Season Pass for Black Flag. So if you are a season pass holder make sure to purchase this via the in-game storefront in order to not be charged.
The Takeover community event will feature the Wanted game mode where numerous goals and rewards are at stake. For participating in the event you will receive “The Pirate Legend” multiplayer title. If you take down 15 targets with the scoring multiplier active, you will be rewarded with the pirate flag emblem to use on your character. This event will also feature two new maps making their way into Black Flag, Plantation and St. Mathieu. These maps will be available to all players after the community event is over.
This event starts on December 13th and runs through December 15th and will be available to those on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. PS4 and Xbox One players will still receive this event, but at a later date.
