Man, Adewale seems so badass and brutal. He reminds me of that PoP next gen thingy that was floating around. Just beefy and brutal. I hope the DLC is good, he looks like he could have his own game though.

I want a strong beefy black Assassin for the next AC game. Someone who just uses brute strength.

Isn't the game length 3 hours? I'm guessing this has free roam of the island, I wonder how big the island is. Also is there any release date? It's not episodic is it?

From the official preview in Ubishop:

Born a slave, Adewale found freedom as a pirate aboard the Jackdaw where he became Edward Kenway’s second-in-command. Now, 15 years later, Adewale has become a trained Assassin who finds himself shipwrecked in Saint-Domingue without weapons or crew.
So, I guess that at some point of the story, Adewale becomes an Assassin and the DLC takes place 15 years after the end of AC4.

Freedom’s Cry—which players can get as part of a $20 season pass—is being written by Jill Murray, one of the writers on last year’s Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation. Murray took some time to answer questions about Freedom’s Cry, including the one that’s probably foremost on the mind of thrifty players.

Kotaku: Why isn’t this on the disc?

Jill Murray: I’ll tell you this much: Black Flag is a huge game. If the DLC had been developed at the same time, I wouldn’t have had the chance to write it. The new DLC features a new hero, new animations and weapons and a new environment and, by the time Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag launches, development on the DLC will continue.

Kotaku: With this announcement, the Assassin’s Creed franchise revisits on the era of chattel slavery. How do you see the Freedom’s Cry DLC in connection to Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation game and the upcoming ACIV chapters focused on Aveline?

Murray: This DLC takes place in the 1730s, about fifteen years after Black Flag. We get to see Saint-Domingue as it was in the generation before Liberation’s elder cohort— Agate, Baptiste, and Jeanne— were enslaved there. We see the Maroon Resistance before they became involved in it, and take an open-eyed look at the conditions they would inherit and rebel against in a very different way than Adewale chooses. Adewale’s heroism is informed by a life at sea, as a pirate, and then as an Assassin. Agate, Baptiste, and Jeanne are children there in Liberation, and their reaction is very different.

As for Aveline, she was removed from slavery by one generation and the degree of privilege granted by her social status. In Liberation, slavery was something she chose to engage with, when she could have pretended to ignore it. The events of Liberation give her good reason to question her ties to the Assassins, but never her commitment to the people she helped. The events of the upcoming DLC introduce her to a new ally, who plays a role in helping her resolve her ambitions and her doubts.

Kotaku: What’s the thinking behind focusing on Adewale as a separate branch of stories?

Murray: Adewale’s firm conviction, sagacity, power, and under-explored perspective make his point of view interesting. By following him on this journey, we get to see new parts of the world, meet new people, and examine facets of history that Edward’s perspective couldn’t show us— and that Adewale himself couldn’t have explored in Edward’s company.

Kotaku: Is he an Assassin? Or just a different sort of hyper-capable warrior on a mission?

Murray: Adewale is a hyper-capable Assassin who listens to his heart and conscience. “Everything is permitted…” takes on new colours when contrasted against the harsh conditions of slavery under the French Code Noir in 18th century Saint-Domingue.

to me it seems like 15 years after he joined Edward's crew

Which means its £19.99. Luckily I don't want a different texture on my sails, and those 3 outfits don't make much of a difference to gameplay other than cosmetics, and I don't do MP. I just want the SP DLC.

This, the sp dlc alone will probably be €15, wich is way too much for 3 hours.And its probably only 2 hours.

The pricing is normal. 3-hour single player DLC DLC = 10$, Multiplayer DLC pack = 5$ and Skins pack = 5$. That's the pricing in every single game I know, apart from Mass Effect 3, in which Multiplayer DLCs were free.

Uhhm no. COJ gunslinger PSN game from ubi. NEW game 6 hours long €15. Far cry blood dragon, dlc for fc3, i don't know its lenght for sure i think around 6 too. €15. So your point is invalid. Both are made by Ubi and priced cheaper. Its just because its AC they want to milk it as much as possible.

I like how Ubisoft is so expansive with their titles! Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Freedom's Cry... Imagine: Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Freedom's Cry Episode I Part I: A New Beginning... Aside that I'm really excited about this because we get a small glimpse of how Ubisoft has many stories in the Assassin's Creed universe yet to tell! (or to tell yet - I'm illiterate!)

Who cares? Adewale and Edward are not traditional assassins. It would not affect the stealth gameplay at all, because if you use it, it would ruin stealth. it is just as unnassassiny as any normal pistol that connor or edward carries.

9 missions cannot be 9 hours surely. 9 missions is like 1 sequence worth of missions. Pack that in with side missions and view points... I say around 6 hours which is good enough for me even though I just made this all up.

Nine fricking hours????????????

While TOKW relied on a cool story and a few weird powers to sell, I am EXTREMELY happy that this dlc finally looks like an actual dlc, with a new character, weapons, animations, and locations, and a longer running time. Do you guys realize that in AC4 we will be able to freeroam as 3 different characters? unbelievable.

Because we are about to enter a new console generation, if you buy the Season Pass for the PS3 or Xbox 360, you will automatically get a next-gen upgrade for the DLC.

Here it is again: The Season Pass will include:

Freedom Cry – Nine single-player missions with a self-contained story focusing on Edward’s quartermaster Adewale. Adewale escaped the bonds of slavery at a young age and sought a life of his own on the Jackdaw, serving under Edward Kenway. Taking place 15 years after joining the Jackdaw’s crew, Freedom Cry sees Adewale going on his own adventure when he finds himself shipwrecked in Saint-Domingue without his crew or weapons.

From what i have seen on FB it seems it will only be 3 hours.

Yeap.

That's where the number 9 comes from :)

Its nine missions..

How long it takes - depends on the player etc as always :)



Also as already posted by Escoblades - the Season Pass transfers over to next gen - when you upgrade ;)

Didn't compare it, i said that Altaïr had a gun. my point was that having a gun does not make it any less assassiny, consider the legendary grand master of the assassin order Altaïr even had one.

Adewale DLC: $15
Pre-order DLC combo (skins and extra missions etc.): $5
MP Characters: $5

all together: $25 - %20 = $20

Aveline 3 missions = 1 hour
Adewale 9 missions = 3 hours

3 hours is actually normal for a highly-bought game like Assassin's Creed. The Mass Effect DLC has always been similar in length and price.

I think that there will be free-roam for both Aveline and Adewale missions (Shade, can you get info on this, I would really like to know?).

Not sure about gunslinger, but Blood Dragon main campaign is approximately 3 hours in length too. The game feels longer thanks to the collectibles and a bunch of little side-missions (of which there's only three types I think, but, thankfully, situations can be varied), plus the island is not that small.

No. The other packs with cosmetic upgrades, preorder bonuses, etc. will probably be either Day 1 or shortly thereafter, but not Freedom Cry. Jill Murray confirmed in the interview quoted a few pages back that its development would stretch past AC4's release date. But all pieces of DLC are supposed to be out before March 2014.

I think Aveline free-roam is possible.

As far as I can tell, it's accessed a similar way to the ToKW DLC (both Aveline and Adewale missions), because Darby says that while they would have liked to make it accessible through the modern-day part of the game, they had to have you access it through a main menu option. I would hope that it would include free-roam.

I have to say, this Season Pass looks reasonably priced, looks interesting and is very enticing. It's a no-brainer. And I haven't said that about any of the prior AC DLC. Good job, guys.

He's most likely of Nigerian descent though. His parents were most likely born there. Adewale is a Nigerian name, according to some other forum member who was talking about this the other day :p

It is kind of a pity he's only getting a DLC, isn't it? He looks like a really cool character. I guess they wanted to stick with the Kenway family though. Maybe he'll show up again in a Vita title or some such?

Adawale told Edward that he was from Trinidad.

He was born there but he is not Trinidadian. He name alone gives away that he is Nigerian (trailer music was also in the same my family speaks). Edward also mentioned about him going back to Africa. Esco can confirm it too since we are both Nigerian.

Yes he could, and I think I'd like that. But at the same time, I'm not sure I want THAT many games in the 18th century. I mean, AC3, AC4, Liberation, possible Connor sequel, AND Adewale sequel? Ehh... There are other time periods to visit. I'm not sure I want to be stuck in the 1700s until 2016 or later. Plus, I'm not sure if the series could handle two pirate-themed games. Unless they did a major setting/tonal shift like they did between Brotherhood and Revelations, it would be too similar to AC4. And maybe the "Pirate's Creed" complaints would be kinda justified.

I feel like we're jumping the gun a bit though :p A one-minute trailer and we're already signing on for a whole game with him. Best to just wait it out and see how it unfolds.

Indeed, I kind of wish they didn't make Liberation, and instead used some of its antislavery themes for Connor's story. AC3 sort of awkwardly shied away from slavery IMO, not counting some throwaway dialogue and that auction block scene in the epilogue.

I kinda feel like it didn't feature them heavily enough. I mean, they were really important in sequences 4 and 6, but then they just upped and vanished from the story.

In any case, abolition would have fit quite snugly into Connor's worldview. It would have at least been interesting to see a big-time slaver trader or something as one of the main Templar targets.

Guys, I am sure that all that needs to be told about this chapter of Adewale's life will be covered in the dlc. TOKW had an excellent story, and this dlc seems to be bigger. Although he jus a very interesting character, I really can not imagine any scenario where Adewale gets a full game...especially with all the other places the world that AC could go next.

China isn't the imperial one, that was Japan.

If they are going to use China as a setting, it should be set during the century of decline (any time from the Opium Wars to the Taiping Rebellion which culminated in the Boxer Rebellion and the fall of the dynasties) instead of the overused dynasty era.

The characters should all be portrayed as speaking their native Mandarin/Cantonese/local dialects instead of accented English - Shao Jun was bad enough I can't handle an entire game with the characters talking like that. And unlike the Renaissance and Crusades, I can't exactly buy Far East Asians speaking heavily accented English. HAE should be restricted to scenes where our "heroic" Chinamen interact with foreigners.

Either that, or we can jump directly into the Rape of Nanking for Japanese invasion shizzles and giggles.

Not having a go but I've never seen that massacre sescribed in such a way. If a committed Nazi, who likely looked down on the ethnic Chinese, found it distasteful and harboured Chinese citizens to protect them, it should speak volumes about the act.

I know this seems internet over sensitive my grandma... blah blah blah, but I would have never constructed that sentance, and know few that would, so it made my eyebrows raise.



Back on topic, this looks to be a reasonably priced nice DLC, I rarely buy them and most of the time use gifted points etc to do so, but I have to say I will be buying this Day 1. One thing I'd like to ask though, and perhaps one of the kind moderators/developers can answer these other ships are they more enemy types or????? To be specific the "Death Vessel" & "Crusader and Florentine" packs.

There was a four year wait between FC2 and FC3, FC4 could release next year but I'd say 2015 is more likely and even though it makes a lot of money that doesn't mean Ubi wont release AC along side it, it happened last year. AC is an annual game now, I doubt we'll see that change any time soon.

Looks good so far and can't wait to play the game but i'll be giving the season pass a miss like most of the other AC games as I have no interest in the multiplayer. It would be great if it's improved however like the first AC I prefer a good detailed story than splitting resources. All the mulitplayer fans will love the season pass and thats their choice but it would be nice if theres and way to save on all story DLC's as i'll get all of them. I appreciate people love multiplayer but for me the season pass just ends up being useless to me.

As for FC4, if could be close but the FC devs seem to have more freedom then the AC devs, so delays are more likey and it hasn't even been officially announced yet so it could come out next year but it probably will be announced at the VGA's for a 2015 release.

The dlc shown with this seasonpass looks great though and I think I might make an exception to the rule and go for it.

Will there be chance that I'll get the same dlc twice though, I pre-ordered AC4 Special Edition for Xbox 360 and the following dlc is included:

Sacrificed Secrets
Captain Kenway's Legacy

I don't realy want to pay for the same content twice although the Seasonpass Only dlc and Freedom Cry look awesome.

the word exclusive can mean different things based on its context though,
and i believe this may be where the confusion stems from.
the word exclusive depending on the words around it, could mean that; as a pre order bonus, it is only available at that specific location (but will be available later, so more an early access exclusive) or it can mean only ever available for pre order and will never be available anywhere else ever; ubisoft have tried to use the second definition before; i direct your attention to ACB exclusives, and this caused a very large amount of unhappy gamers around the globe, so the harle/hellequin (i don't remember which) was released through the uplay system as it was not included in any other DLC, ubisoft (across all franchizes) have since had all pre order ULC as early access, and later released the ULC in a DLC package. could ubisoft make the same mistake twice andnot make the pre order content, available further down then line, yes they could, but it would upset alot of people, and they would reverse the decision and release the content, before the announcement of the 7th AC installment in July of 2014

Interesting that the source you linked to seems to contrast against the information given by black_widow9
Could it be that the ubiblog source is older and therefore possibly wrong?
I am getting pretty confused about all the contrasting opinions floating around the different countries in regards to ac4,

Who cares? Adewale and Edward are not traditional assassins. It would not affect the stealth gameplay at all, because if you use it, it would ruin stealth. it is just as unnassassiny as any normal pistol that connor or edward carries.

Its funny how everyone says things aren't assassiny or something an assassin would do. Nothing is true everything is permitted is the motto of the assassin's. I think they are defined more by their willingness to do anything than by any particular set of actions, thats more up to what the assassin thinks will do the job and their own personality than any sort of group mentality. obviously the group as a whole likes to be stealthy but that doesn't mean some of them aren't still showoffs

I need confirmation PLEASE!!!!!! Mr_Shade, you say the season pass includes Freedom Cry DLC, Kraken Pack, Pirate personalize experience and Multiplayer Mayhem, but you did not include the Death Vessel Pack AND Crusader and Florentine pack as shown in the image. Were you just mistaken or is there actually the other 2 missing packs???

In the image it says nothing about a Wii U version. Does this mean that it will not get the Season Pass, or not got the DLC at all? Or just a mistake? I have been a long time Assassin's Creed supporter for the Xbox 360. Considering Microsoft ruined my trust with the Xbox One I want to get it for the Wii U. I already have the game pre-ordered for Wii U and want to get this DLC because it looks amazing. I trust you guys because you have shown great support for the Wii U unlike your competitor EA. I hope this hasn't changed. Someone already asked this question earlier in the forum but it wasn't addressed. Please let me know, thank you.

Question: Will the Season Pass immediately unlock all the preorder bonus DLC's from the different stores offering it? At first I preordered a Standard Edition from GameStop because I was still trying to see if I can get the Black Chest Edition if Ubisoft ever changed their minds about releasing it in NA. So that was a no go, so then I decided that I'll just settle for the NA Limited Edition, but GameStop told me the Limited Edition is sold out in stores and that I have to preorder it online. I decided to preorder it from WalMart because 1) they have free Guarantee Release Date Delivery whereas GameStop charges $13 for release date delivery, and 2) because walmart has a better preorder bonus in my opinion with the dual wield drake swords and dual pistols. BUT THEN, now gamestop is telling me that they're getting another preorder bonus on top of what they have and it's dual wield German Rapiers. It's too late to change my preorder now so I'm wondering if the Season Pass I'm going to buy on Day 1 is going to have all the preorder bonuses from Target, Amazon, Best Buy, and GameStop on top of the extra bonus German Rapiers from GameStop that was recently added.

Any idea why? I mean honestly there is no excuse. People wonder why they don't get games for the Wii U whenever companies clearly gimp their version of the game on it whenever the xbox 360 and ps3 are inferior in tech but Wii U doesn't get it. Hopefully Ubisoft will change their mind. If they don't, then I guess I will not be getting the DLC even though I have gotten ALL of their DLC and ALL of their games for Assassin's Creed. I guess they just don't want my money. Shame, it looked really good. I'll just watch a playthrough of it on youtube then. Thanks for letting me know man.

I too purchased the Season Pass on Day One, and I redeemed and installed the season pass however None of the bonus content are in the game. Aren't I suppose to get all the secrets pack? I didn't get any message saying the Black Island secrets is unlocked or the Sacrificed Island secrets unlocked and this is after already putting in the season pass as well as the preorder bonus card from gamestop.

2. It will be split in a number of episodes similar to The Tyranny Of King Washington?

@Ubi-Much, the link you gave specifically talks about equipping the weapons / upgrades and all, but where do we actually find the content in the game world?
After I redeemed the codes for the season pass and the Gamestop Pre-order items, I've only been able to find the Black Isle items..

I think the FAQ that people are being re-direct to needs to be expanded to include the location (map coordinates would be most welcomed)

Once it has been - the FAQ will be updated - it would be misleading and confusing if it was listed before release.

I was looking for more info about the season pass and found this. It says there is a discount for any who buy the season pass for the new liberation HD.

Also, if we buy the season pass, do we get the GameStop exclusive that was added along, or do we not get the German swords?

I heard somewhere that some DLCs for the new ubisoft games, including this one, is exclusive to playstation, and isn't available on the xbox consoles. Is this true? Because this would be a VERY bad move, since not only will this mean that you'd get less profit (you're not going to persuade anyone to switch consoles) but you're also going to make a lot of people who bought a season pass quite angry, since they won't get all they paid for. Might I suggest doing the same as activision: releasing all content on all consoles, but to one console family weeks or even months before the other(s). Therefore you'll keep favour with everyone, but still give a bonus to sony.

Knightstar2001
11-06-2013, 08:51 PM
Season pass owners will have no grounds for getting angry since they will be getting everything that the season pass covers. I doubt console exclusive DLC is included in the season pass, just like the Time saver DLCs are not included. I see no one raging over those not being included. Also How does not having the DLC availble on Xbox equal less Profit? Either people were going to get it on their Xbox or they weren't. This was a Win-Win for Ubisoft since they get paid a flat fee for making it for Sony and Sony gets a leg up on Xbox as a reason to get it on that console if you have both.

DafyddRW
11-06-2013, 11:06 PM
But if the season pass costs the same on both consoles, but there's less content for the xbox version, they get less for their money. Also, by not making the DLCs available for them, the people who would have bought them can't, which might make them rethink buying any other content, even to the point of some people with 'strong opinions' completely stop buying ubisoft games because they think they're being neglected by the company. I'm not one of those people, but I do find it irritating, and I definitely won't be buying a season pass if I don't get as much as someone with a ps4 would because it's just unfair.

Don't worry the Seasons Pass WILL NOT include content that is not availlable to other platforms. the only thing that is only availlable to PS platforms are the Aveline Missions.
But I have a theory about the Seasons Pass, I think the Seasons Pass WILL include ALL the DLC and ULC from all the editions EXEPT the DLC you get with the Mcfarlane Figures or the Figurines (Blackbeard and Edward the Assassin Pirate). Here is a link with all the DLC from the all the editions :-) https://support.ubi.com/en-gb/FAQ.aspx?platformid=9&brandid=22&productid=4186&faqid=kA030000000eayyCAA

I would realy like to buy the seasonpass but not untill I'm sure about what future dlc/ulc will be included, there isn't any clear information on what's included though.
Freedom Cry and the extra dlc/ulc single player content are very nice, I don't care for the multiplayer items since I never play online multiplayer.

I'm interested in the Aveline Liberations game coming to 360 myself. However, I could give a rat's behind on the exclusive content, EVEN if the license runs out in 6 months after release of AC IV. I'd probably pay $5.00 USD for it. But only if it's good, otherwise I can watch it on the YouTube.

I did not know that the Season Pass only gave you a 20% discount. So it costs $20 to get a 20% discount, so they'd have to put out $100 worth of DLCs to make back that cost. With the likes of Borderlands 2 where they have gone crazy releasing DLC packs I could see being bale to recoup that, but with Assassin's Creed IV ... ? Will they really put out $100 worth of DLCS???

It's more like $25.00 USD in total actually. 24.99 - 20% = 19.99, which is the cost of the Season Pass in the US. Minus the various taxes.

Thanks for all the replies. If it's just the Aveline content that's exclusive, I don't mind at all, and I will buy the season pass. As for 20% discount, $20 isn't a 20% discount on $100, that would be $80. $20 is a 20% discount on $25, which makes much more sense, since ubisoft would only need to make two or three DLCs for that to be reasonable. Thank you all for informing me. :D

Right ... I bought it in the US as well. So you shelled out $20 for it, yes? So to get that $20 back you have to save $20 (or more) in future DLCs. But if the Season Pass just gives you 20% off future DLCs, that means that there has to be at least $100 worth of DLCs released, and you'd get them for $80, thus saving the $20 difference.

Maybe I am not remembering previous titles very well, but I do not remember them releasing that many DLCs for that sort of price range, which leaves me skeptical that I made a shrewd purchase.

Maybe I am not understanding how the season pass works:

- it was my assumption when I bought it that it agve me all future DLCs for free.
- but after reading the first post here I am wondering if I just get a 20% discount on the DLCs

Which is it?

Alright, I don't think many of you understand. The season pass costs $20. It claims that it gives you a 20% discount. A season pass gives you all the future DLCs, without having to pay any more (the only exception being the Aveline content). This means that, If you were to buy the DLCs separately, without the season pass, it would cost you $25, and you wouldn't get the kraken ship.

... Wth. It's a savings of 20% off the TOTAL of all the content IN the Season Pass. You get ALL the DLC once you buy the Season Pass. In total, it would be 24.99 minus the 20% (Your savings) it's 19.99.

I'm sorry for my next comment... I really am.

Your math is absurd. There was ever only 2 Season Passes for AC games, III and IV. 24.99 - 20% = 19.99. THAT is the extent of how much SEPARATELY the DLC would cost, which is 24.99 plus various taxes. IT doesn't give you a discount on each part of the pass for 20 dollars, there isn't 100 dollars of content. There's only 25 dollars of content.

FOR EVERYONE ELSE:

There's no discount. It's already included in the pass. You get EVERYTHING that they're going to release for the Pass. Once more, THERE IS NO DISCOUNT. The COST of the Pass is already discounted by 20% off the TOTAL of the content included IN the Pass.

If you think it's not good enough to get all those things, refund it. But alas you can't since there's a tiny, little scrib of note at the bottom of the confirm window... Digital Content cannot be Refunded. >.> Ooooh.

Also right now, there's 2 DLC's that are released, Death Vessel and Kraken Ship for the Pass. So yes, that's 2 DLC TAKEN off the Pass already. So they have to do 5 more DLC packs to make good on the season pass. As Shade has stated, the DLC will be released at select intervals according to UbiSoft's policies on releasing content. It's like that for EVERY Season Pass for EVERY game. You don't get EVERYTHING right off.

Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad armour is already available in game as is Ezio Auditore da Firenze and Connor's (Ratonhnhaké:ton), they are rewards for playing the previous games and are unlocked at the start of AC4

double facepalm. First you ask for the Freedom Cry DLC the moment you got AC4 and the season pass. and then you don't know what you're talking about in terms of Altair's armor. There's a different between the Armor of Altair and Altair's robes.

I'm with hamNdoritos. There is a difference. lol. I don't think these people EVER bought a season pass before. Even so, it kinda is assumed that they don't give you everything right off, since everything isn't DONE. lol.

i really wish the season pass would ONLY have sp content which would justify the extra cost, as the MP content is a waste of money to me since i really hate it other than the wolfpack

What is the "Illustrious Pirates Pack". Does it include the unlockable content from the McFarlane action figures?
-Connor Sails
-Dark Blue Outfit
-Kenway Family Sword
-Benjamin Hornigold Sails
-Blackbeard's Sails
-Black Bart Sails
So does it contain this or what?

So I have ACIV for XBOX ONE and I want to get a season pass. If I buy it on ONE I get the season pass, but if I buy it on 360, it transfers to the ONE AND I get 25% off HD LIBERATIONS?


For a limited time only, all players that purchase or have already purchased the Season Pass for Assassin's Creed® IV Black Flag™ on Xbox 360 will receive 25% off their purchase of Assassin's Creed Liberation HD. Owners of Assassin’s Creed®IV Black Flag™ Season Pass for Xbox 360 will also get Season Pass access on Xbox One.

So with that said, I assume I should buy it on 360 and transfer it to the ONE. How does that even work?

When it says " Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag Season Pass grants a 20 percent savings off the regular price of each individual downloadable pack to be released before March 2014", does that mean I'm saving 20%, or do I still have to buy all the content but with a 20% discount?

You save 20% (compared to buying all individually) :)

Also, you get a discount on AC: Liberation HD if you pre-order and have the Season Pass for AC IV: BF.

Just read the wiki summary of Freedom Cry, and now I'm really excited. The trailer made it seem like it would be about Ade escaping slavery, but if it's about him after he has some assassin experience under his belt, then I'm pumped!

What do you mean?,it´s not saying there when it will going to be released.

But I´ve seen yesterday that the new trophies of the dlc appeared,on my trophies list.

So I think that maybe it will come this Wednesday in Europe?,and probably Tuesday in the United States?

Hi, It 'should' - have you contacted support?

OR - checked the in game additional content menu - you maybe able to download it again, from there - however do not re-purchase it - if it says it cost's money!!

There is no option to just "re-download" it.

Hmm as far as I saw in the internet the AC3 DLC,which was called:"The Battle Hardened Pack",was announced on December 4,2012 and was released on January 8,2013 for Ps3 and Xbox360.

But don´t tell me now that we have to wait now also again until next year,that the "Freedom Cry" DLC will be released?

I did and got a pointless reply what carries over when I upgrade my PS3 version to PS4.

Thing is I didn't do this voucher thing (thankfully as it doesn't seem to work anyway) but bought an extra retail copy of ACIV for the PS4.

So what now? Did I burn 20 euros on the old system and am now being forced to pay another 20 bucks on the PS4?

Btw, I just checked the Season Pass status via PS3/PSN and its marked as "Purchased".
The PS4 is most definatly still listing the price of 19.99 Euro.

Well eventhough I don´t have a Ps4,what I only don´t understand is that actually when you have bought something from the Ps Store like e.g. the Season Pass for ACIV on Ps3,why is it not showing up in the download list?,what I mean is,is it not possible somehow to go to the Ps Store of the Ps4 and then go to the download list?,cause there should be actually the Season Pass if you have bought it already,and should transfer it from Ps3 to Ps4 if you have bought it from there,right?

So it´s not shown in the download list?,strange or maybe they did it like this don´t know.

As also for some reason players which got a Ps3 can´t play Assasins Creed IV Black Flag multiplayer together,with players which got a Ps4.

Guys I am reporting this - can you all please contact me via PM - with your support ticket numbers, if you have been told that the season pass can't be transferred?

The season pass it's self - SHOULD - transfer over - when you do the upgrade.

Please ensure you are using the SAME uPlay account and PSN as you did before, and it should appear in the 'Additional Content' section in game for free - at least that is my understanding, so I am checking for you all now.

Once you have the season pass - you can re-download items which are on it, for free.

Other DLC you may have purchased or received as part of a pre-order bonus, or in the collectors edition does not carry over, as noted in the first post, however it's possible that this content maybe reissued at a future date.


If you DID NOT use the official Upgrade path, as per the first post - PLEASE POST back - since that maybe the root issue.


If you have not contacted support - please do so asap.

You can also check your download history on the PS4 and purchase history on the PS Store to see if it is purchased and click on download again if it has. If it isn't there then it's probably because of technical difficulties with the PSN Store.

Unless im missing something, you cannot see your ps3 purchases on the ps4, and if so, why arn't ubi support aware of this.

Hopefully somone will sort this out.

I had problems where my season pass stuff and my special edition stuff went missing... think it might have been the update on the Xbox One that messed it all up. I had to delete the addon pack and then re-install it... and it fixed it fine after fully restarting the game.
