It's become quite usual so it is no surprise to learn that Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is also getting a Season Pass giving access to plenty of downloadable content. The main dish however comes in the form of a whole new adventure dealing with the problem of slavery. Let's hope the story is interesting enough as the subject itself clearly is promising. The trailer doesn't show much but its atmosphere is pretty well done thanks to some nice music and solid voice acting. Update: Screenshots added.
A Season Pass will be available for purchase at the launch of the game on PlayStation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC, and will include the below downloadable game content. Get all of this for only £15.95, a 20% savings off the individual pack prices.
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.

Activision isn't too much better, with the exception of Blizzard games. Ubisoft is maybe adapting better. (1 minute ago)
I think publishers can miss the plot a bit too. I think EA is stuck between chasing trends and being stuck in sorta old ways. They need to figure out this market. (2 minutes ago)
and it would work on consoles too. Elite Dangerous with it's advanced controls were still able to work reasonably well on a gamepad. Giving the game a dynamic campaign built around story elements. (3 minutes ago)
I think giving one publisher exclusive rights to the license was probably a mistake. Sorta putting all your eggs in one basket. (4 minutes ago)
a flight sim background (Lawrence Holland). But i can't imagine disney/ea being interested in doing a game like that (6 minutes ago)
Another kind of SW game i'd love to play is a space-sim kind of game. sorta like a modern take on Tie-Fighter (or the X-Wing series in general). Those were games developed by a team that came from.. (8 minutes ago)
I definitely worry about the focus testing approach they take and the appeal to everyone thing, but I'd also love to hear more from insiders. (12 minutes ago)
