Ubisoft has announced that the first Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag multiplayer DLC will be available for download from tomorrow for PSN, Xbox Live and PC.

The downloadable content - called Blackbeard's Wrath - introduces three new characters into the game's multiplayer...

The three new characters are Blackbeard, The Orchid and The Jaguar, and each bring with them their own unique combat skills. In a press release, Ubisoft gave a little information about the background, skills and preferred assasination methods of each of the new additions:

Blackbeard - wielding a sword and a short temper is not to be trifled with. His reputation as a feared pirate is justly received and his preferred kill moves include using his tremendous strength to throw his targets off balance and then quickly finishing them with one clean strike.

The Orchid - a Templar-friendly deadly assassin grew up in China, serving as a military advisor in the Quing dynasty where she honed her murderous skills. She executes opponents swiftly and gracefully with her katana, an extension of her mind and body.

The Jaguar - Cuali, an Aztec warrior from Mexico, took to the sea to fight against the Spanish conquest of Central America. A fighter, he survived the destruction of his community and joined forces with a growing contingency of native Templars who sought renewed peace and order. Driven by a mystical force, The Jaguar fights like his namesake, striking swiftly and quietly with his preferred weapon, a discreet axe.

What do you think of the new characters? Have you enjoyed Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag's multiplayer mode?

I see no use of this DLC
The MP character chosen contributes nothing to gameplay other than a final finishing move

C'mon they're a multi-million dollar company how hard could it be?
truth is they're just lazy, they horribly optimize their games and then say stuff like "optimization isn't really important"

Its not a matter of making it, its a matter of running on machines that are low-med at max. The bandwidth required to do this(internet bandwidth) would be to great. The MP right now, on the other hand, can be played easily with a 1Mbps connection. Also the servers would have to be powerful to support such computation. It is actually not possible
