As such, the developers have already released the details of the Season Pass, and it brings a lot of downloadable content, starting with Freedom City. Here, you will encounter nine missions exclusively for Adewale the first mate in AC4.
This will be a story-based DLC and will take the point of view of Adewale fifteen years after he joins Kenway's ship. And this time, you will take Adewale in a journey towards learning the art of assassination.
In a press release obtained by Joystiq, it was also revealed that the Season Pass will bring the Exclusive Kraken Ship Pack, for personalising the Jackdaw. There will be more missions, skins, and collectibles for single-player mode, while the multiplayer mode will have more unlockable characters.
The Season Pass for Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag can get you to save 20% off the downloadable add-ons, which are slated to be released early 2014.

New gameplay content available
In an exclusive video interview with VG 24/7, lead writer Darby McDevitt shows off some new gameplays and sequences that depict a near-perfect and near-finished Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag.
McDevitt explains that the kind of action and danger that you will encounter in Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag is actually dependent on you. As you start out in the game, you have a pretty clean record, and as your pirates' ways and looting increase, so does your wanted level.
"Pirate hunters will start to come after you, and the higher your wanted level, the more intense the battles are and the danger to you," said McDevitt.
For Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, distractibility is not a problem. You may start off with a mission, but exploration of the world is not unheard of nor unwelcomed even in the middle of a mission. This is what sets it apart from its predecessors, where you are more bent on focusing on the mission at hand.
