Assassin's Creed 4's DLC, Blackbeard's Wrath, has finally been given the go sign and is already out for purchase today. This new multiplayer DLC seems to be bearing three multiplayer characters, including Blackbeard, The Orchid, and The Jaguar, and each has a specific weapon of choice.

Softpedia reports that the DLC will come out for the PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. But that's not all that you can expect from Assassin's Creed 4, as another add0on Freedom Cry, is said to bear new locations to explore as well as more hints on Assassin's Creed 5.

Speaking with Eurogamer, Ubisoft revealed that Freedom Cry will put Adewale on the spotlight, but will still be very much weaved into the main Assassin's Creed 4 game. Though it's an exciting DLC as it will contain Easter Egg-like bonuses as shout outs for the next game, it won't have the Kraken with it.

Call of Duty: Ghosts' DLC will be a dog?

When Call of Duty: Ghosts was being teased months before the game was released on any platform, one of the big changes was the inclusion of a dog, Riley, in the game. Riley fights for you in multiplayer mode.

Some weeks after gamers have enjoyed the game, the newest leak revolves around how the next DLC for Call of Duty: Ghosts will still involve Riley. Or better yet, a changed Riley, transforming him from the military guard dog to a wilder beast, a Wolf.

VG 24/7 has spotted a report that leaks a white wolf micro-DLC add-on titled Guard Dog Killstreak Skin. Apparently, the image (which can be seen in the link above) has been leaked by a game retailer employee and is set to launch on December 12 for $3.

The Redditor who leaked the image also mentioned that the availability on the 12th may cover not just the Xbox 360, but also the Xbox One. What do you think of a wolf skin for a DLC?

Batman: Arkham Origins' story DLC gets more details

Though rumours of the Batman: Arkham Origins sequel is already underway for Rocksteady, there is still the Initiation DLC, the awaited story add-on for the current Batman Arkham game.

Slated to arrive in December, Rock Paper Shotgun reports a few more details about the DLC. For instance, Bruce Wayne will be under the tutelage of Kirigi, one of the lesser known comic characters, as the Dark Knight in traiing aims to go through challenge maps that test the martial arts capabilities of against those who are trained in these fields.

In other add-on news, Batman: Arkham Origins also features a couple more add-ons, only in the form of armory. The first batch, the Online Supply Drop - 1, which adds multiplayer clothes and weapons, reports IGN. It's available for $2.99 on all platforms.

Another Online Supply Drop has arrived on Xbox Live at a similar price as the first one. It will also give additional clothing, this time for Bane and Joker characters, as well as bring out the big guns with the all-new Light Machine Gun and skins. You can get this for your Xbox 360 at 108KB.
