And apparently, they’ll be best understood by hardcore fans.
The voyage of Edward Kenway in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag may have come to an end, but the universe is very much alive with DLC. Ubisoft Quebec is responsible for developing the Freedom Cry DLC, which sees side-character Adewale take center stage.
Creative director Wesley Pincombe spoke to Eurogamer about the same to Eurogamer, and stated that, “This is primarily an Adéwalé story – Edward isn’t present – but we do shoot a couple of lines back and forth with him reminiscing about his past.”
He also indicated that there would be clues for the next Assassin’s Creed hidden in the game. “There are some [hints] but our fans will only discover them in the future. They’re in your face, but you’d have to be a hardcore fan to understand them.”
As of now, the multiplayer-only Blackbeard’s Wrath DLC will release first, followed by Freedom Cry. What does the future hold for Assassin’s Creed? We’ll have to wait till next year (most likely before November 2014) to find out.
