Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag content detailed

Details of the exclusive Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag missions on PS3 and PS4 have been revealed.

According to an official Ubisoft blog, the content will star Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation hero Aveline - a much-older Aveline.

Lead writer Darby McDevitt explains, “It’s a ways forward so Aveline is a bit older. It’s not directly related to the end of her story. If Assassin’s Creed IV is like a novel, Aveline’s missions are like a short story.

“The present-day is set in Abstergo Entertainment – which is this fun, hip company to work for… at first. You are able to access the Aveline stuff because your coworkers are working on retrieving different genetic memories from all kinds of different people.”

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag releases on PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U on October 29 in North America and November 1 in Europe. The game will also be released on Xbox One and PS4 although the above content, which sounds quite substantial, is exclusive to PS3 and PS4.

Trust me, It isn't going to be. We talk about this on the forums regularly. They say there are 3 missions with Aveline, and that it will take an hour. Well that's complete crap. The Hidden Secrets pack for AC3 had 3 missions and was supposed to take an hour but it took 20-30 minutes tops. Do you honestly think that 3 missions will give you an hour of gametime? 3 MISSIONS? Not even sequences? It won't be anything you guys on Xbox will miss out on to be honest.

Wait. This is set before ac3. But liberation is in AC3's timeline isn't it? I'm only a couple of missions in to Lib, but it has a mission with Connor in it according to the box. What the hell is going on?

Arun i had a feeling they would be like that will probably be the same with watchdogs as well.

Yes this is set before AC3. But this is the Animus we are talking about. Abstergo developed a way for people to relive other peoples memories, hence the "Cloud" at the end of AC3 involving the pivots etc. Aveline isn't going to cross paths with Edward, but it means that she will have gone there in some point. Actually the Ubi Blog says she is older, which means that she goes to the Caribbean a few years after her events around AC3's time period.
