Ok season pass announced, fair enough. What does this mean for the discrepancy as pointed out before where the gold edition for NCSA region on Steam contains the season pass and the digital deluxe edition for all other regions does not yet they are the same price?

And I'm also confused about the phrasing:
Pre-order “Assassin's Creed® IV Black Flag™ Uplay Digital Deluxe Edition” on Uplay Shop and save 25% on the season pass!

Does that mean the season pass is included in the digital deluxe edition or do we get a discount when we go to buy the season pass seperately?

Edit : we should but the discount is not applied as I tested just a few minutes ago

Doesn't seem like it, no, nor in my Black Chest :S

Though I think it could be reasonable that we get discounts too! Not to start a flame war, nor to say we must get one or deserve one, but it could be argued for, at least if one buys through Uplay.

In sweden, where I live, the only editions available are the regular and the skull edition. The skull edition doesn't contain all singleplayer missions, such as Avelines missions and some "island" missions. The rest of the "island" missions as well as Avelines missions are included in the Digital Deluxe Edition on Steam and as far as I can see, Steam is the only place that has ALL single player content, minus the season pass. But the Steam Digital Deluxe doesn't contain the artbook, which I am very interested in.

So, I still want the Skull edition, but how do I get my hands on the rest of the content? Avelines content isn't anywhere in any shop neither are the extra "island" missions.

The description of the Season Pass says "The Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag downloadable content features additional single player missions, including ‘Freedom Cry’...". It says additional single player INCLUDING freedom cry, which I take will contain OTHER single player missions also. But which ones? Avelines? More "islands"?

I assume the pre-order of the black chest edition doesnt include the season pass or the other digital content? Cause im contemplating to cancel my black chest order and get the uplay digital one: i dont care much for the memorabilia, its mostly all the digital content (missions, costumes), i want

Is this possible? (cause i already received the case with the wtch codes and stuff).

I thought Black Chest would includes "All existing additional Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag Unlockable In-Game Content, including single player missions, skins and weapons"

I thought ALL EXISTING ADDITIONAL CONTENT should be all existing additional content, not ALL LESS DLCs.

Black Chest Edition should include the Season Pass, isn't it?

No wonder everyone gets confused, when not even UBI gets things straight: ULC is not DLC!

ULC = extras already included in the game from day one, but depending on your unlock codes that came with your editions
DLC = content downloads, that need individual download codes and have to be bought separately
Season Pass = pack of DLCs and/or ULCs, that come together at a discount but are not included in the different game editiions. Usually for UBI the pre-order ULC codes come packaged here as well, but are called DLC for whatever reason. The individual codes and files may not be available right from the start but may become available one after another in a certain time-frame after release. This is where UBISHOP and their handling Partner Digital River have been messing up big time in the past, not processing online orders correctly and thus being unable to provide codes and/or files in a proper manner (see AC3 and GRFS season passes).

I think UBIs marketing needs to be more precise on whats what.

P.S.: Oh, and let's hope that UBIs/DRs business processes don't mess up again with the rollout of the DLCs/season passes AGAIN!

Mork

Thank you. I've understood all.

But, I hope ubisoft changes its DLC/ULC politic in the future. Another companies give the Season Pass with their biggest edition, that have a similar prize than Black Chest. We trust Ubisoft buying directly to them the Black Chest, and we want that Ubisoft give us the best product.

In fact, quality/price rate, Black Chest only have 2 canvas prints and a flag more than Bucaneer, it costs 50€? Finally we pay 170€ for Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag, very very expensive I think.
And we must buy the Season Pass, because if we only buy Freedom Cry, multiplayer characters and the Kraken Ship, will cost similar than the season pass, and we already have the unlockable content.

I am very disapointing with Black Chest, I expected more from Ubisoft

The Season Pass does NOT include a DLC with all ULCs from the special editions like AC 3 and Revelations had. Please make a DLC with all the content from the special editions + deluxe with Aveline missions. I already bought the Skull Edition, I won't buy the deluxe edition just for the extra missions. They should come in a DLC.

I don't think they are the same missions as the ones from the black chest edition.

Can you please be more specific, Ubi?

I'm repeating myself: Please make a DLC and include it in the Season Pass just like you did with the Hidden Secrets Pack from AC 3. Is it so hard to put all the bonus content from the Deluxe Edition in a DLC? I won't but the Season Pass if you won't make it.

And fajarmf94, the answer is no. The Deluxe Edition does NOT include the Season Pass.

This bonus content Freedom Cry it's split in episodes just like The Tyranny Of King Washington or will be all of it unlocked from the beginning?
Also, when it will be available?

L.E. Isn't available to all regions? If i connect to the page with my country's proxy I get the error "Product not available". If I switch to UK proxy, the page loads normally. I live in Romania.

So just so I understand this as its not clear: Does the season pass mean I have access to all DLC like the AC3 season pass, or do I have to buy the DLC as it comes out, but with a 20% discount? Also, I got the season pass, but I still have to pay for the Time Saver content if I want it? What's up with that?

Hi,

The DLC will be free - assuming you use the game menu to download them - they will appear in the Marketplace / Store on the console, however you will pay for them if you use that method to download - so check the 'Additional Content' menu in game for the DLC to make sure you are not paying twice!!

Once you buy the Season pass - you get the listed contents for free [if you use the in game menu as above] when they are released - release dates to be confirmed.


Shortcuts - such as the 'Time Saver' packs - maybe excluded, since they are not DLC - just shortcuts [unlocks] and not listed as contents for the season pass.

Hi,

in my pre-order set there was an exclusive treasure map with a 19 digit code for a "surprise" on launch date. Now that launch date is over I got that surprise anyway with my Ubisoft-Login, which seemingly generated a new code which allowed me to activate three exclusive treasures. So I guess that code from the pre-ordering is still available, at least I think so. Or does the pre-order code entitle to a different goodie?

If anyone's interested, I could give away that code to a lucky gamer, but not before thursday next week (not at home now for the next couple of days). anyone down for a goodie? :)

I have to mention that I have not yet installed AC4 (Not released for PC yet).

Same here, I purchased season pass and I got the same message. Although I had the game already installed at the time. On the AC screen in uplay it says "owned" with season pass and some other DLCs but every time I try to copy to clipboard and activate in game ´this message will pop out. I have some of the content in game, but miss other things. I have kraken pack and for example. But no multiplayer characters no new window to start playing Adewale's missions and I'm little bit concerned now. Has anyone similar expirience?

The Russian UBI shop page states "Приобретите “Assassin's Creed® IV Чёрный флаг™ Uplay Digital Deluxe Edition” в магазине Uplay и получите скидку 25% на сезонный доступ к DLC!"
Well, I've purchased Uplay Digital Deluxe Edition, but now 25% discount does not apply to Season Pass. So that red statement is not clear enough. The game's shop page should state that one gets discount only when UDDE and SP are purchased simultaneously.

That Illustrious Pirates Pack has an image with the costumes you unlock from those 3 single-player missions (Hidden Mystery, Sacrificed Secrets and Black Island).
So it is possible that this DLC will contain these 3 missions.
As for the pre-order packs from the black chest edition, I don't think so...

Many of us are not on STEAM, and many of us already purchased the Season's Pass which promised the said DLC ... however, many of us were not given the access to the said DLC. This is the main reason of the most rants here.

playing now through steam it will be in the aveline section..steam uses uplay to launch all Creeds... If your only using uplay and your not launching it through steam and its not working thats pretty sad. But for anyone that plays through steam i hope this helps.

The DLC may release at different times - in different regions /platforms..

If you are waiting for the PC version - Steam 'should' update at their normal update time - which is 6pm GMT - so just over an hour away. It will be sometime today..

I left my PC running overnight with Steam online. I see Freedom Cry checked off in Uplay as DLC I own (since I already had Season Pass). Steam now shows Freedom Cry as available DLC for $9.99, but it doesn't show in my list of already owned DLC when I click Properties on the game's launch tab.

In game Freedom Cry is nowhere to be found. I hesitate to click ADD TO CART to get it from Steam because I might be charged for what should be free.

U must have some problems guys couse I bought Season Pass 2 days ago and yesterday at late evening I was able to download the DLC an I can play It without any problems. Try to enter Uplay and under "play singleplayer " button there is an option verify files or something like that. Try that and restart Uplay.

The problems is on ubisofts end. Verifying files or anything else doesn't do a thing. They need to admit it's their problem and come up with a solution asap.

The problem is likely that there were two Season Pass types, OEM, those which came with the Gold Edition, and retail, those which were bought separately. It appears the OEM versions were not coded with the proper contents. It has been verified by someone whom got the Season Pass included with his purchase that Uplay was not showing Freedom Cry as part of it's contents.

I just opened Steam a little while ago and it started updating Black Flag with a file that looks like it will take the better part of an hour to update, so hopefully it's Freedom Cry.

...Just checked the DLC content of my Steam copy after remembering you can look for it under the game's properties, and it now shows Freedom Cry. See people, once Ubi gets their house in order, Valve is quick to follow. It's not their fault.

I'm sure Ubi are aware of it and working on it. It's probably just that Ubi/UPlay aren't quite as good at updating as Valve/Steam. Steam was purposely made to be streamlined and easy to work with, and Valve despite taking forever to make games are actually quite fast at updating things. In Ubi's defense, they have a lot on their plate with projects right now, but they really should be momentarily dropping them to prioritize this.

I have had a problem with the Season Pass, trying to get it via Uplay. Thing is, everytime I use either Uplay or the website, I am about to continue to checkout and ding! Server error.
I have tried contacting the support but I cannot log in properly as it keeps on asking me to log in when I am logged in, and wrote the login + password 5 times over. Does anyone know if the servers are busted or something? I was really happy for the SP but now I can't even seem to get it.

What exactly does the season pass contain?

Im mainly asking about the separate mention of "additional single-player missions". Does it just mention the Freedom Cry again? Or does it mean the 3 islands (Sacrifice Island, Black Island, Mystery Island) you get from Deluxe Edition? Or is it something else?

What Ive gathered from Ubiblog, store pages etc.

The Season Pass will include:
* Freedom Cry – The 9 mission Adewale DLC
* Kraken Ship Pack – Ship customization
* Additional single-player missions, weapons, skins and collectibles - What exactly is this, especially the missions part?
* New multiplayer characters - Self explanatory

I am having the same problem. I purchased the Season Pass with Ultimate Pay, and received a receipt, but no activation code was delivered. I just got a receipt, $19.99 charged to my credit card and no DLC. I'm feeling really bamboozled, because I also preordered from Gamestop to get the Black Island Pack, and never got that either.

Hello,
The Time Saver Packs are not part of the Season Pass. The details of what is included are in the original post. ;) If you have any questions, please let us know.

I found a nice official image of whats actually in the season pass:

The Illustrious Pirates pack is the islands you get from Deluxe Edition and counts as "Additional single-player missions, weapons, skins and collectibles", so if you got that the season pass is a really bad deal.

If I understand the season pass correctly, you're still need to pay for the said exclusive DLC pack but with a discount. They are not meant to be free.

What exclusive DLC are you talking about? If it's Kraken Ship Pack, if you buy all the DLCs separately, without Kraken Ship Pack which is not available separetely, you have to pay 25€ . But if you buy the Season Pass, you have to pay 20€ with the Kraken Ship pack. So you get a good discount plus a free dlc.

I am in the blind as there are too many edition and DLC floating around. I have yet to acquire the season pass and planning to do so. My game is Uplay deluxe edition. So, does this mean that if I get the season pass now I also entitle to Freedom CRY foc or I still need to fork out additional money for it?

Indeed, there are too many editions floating around. But the Deluxe Edition has all ULCs from all editions. And yes, you'll get the Freedom Cry DLC with the Season Pass. You don't have to spend any other money.
But, if you don't want all the DLCs and you want only Freedom Cry, you can buy only the Freedom Cry (10€). I guess you noticed that the Illustrious Pirates Pack has everything you already have in the Deluxe Edition. But if you want to spend another 10€ for 4 sails, 3 multiplayer characters and the Illustrious Pack which you already have, it's up to you.
