PlayStation exclusive Assassin's Creed IV content explained

Release Date: 31/07/2013

As is now traditional, if you pick up Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag for the PlayStation 3 you'll get additional bonus content not available in other versions of the game.

The content will encompass three bonus missions, adding up to around an hour of exclusive gameplay, and will see the return of Aveline de Grandpré, star of PS Vita spin-off Assassin's Creed: Liberation. Jill Murray, the scriptwriter behind Liberation, is returning to the series to pen these additional missions but that doesn't mean they'll act as a direct sequel to that game.

"It's a ways forward so Aveline is a bit older," lead writer Darby McDevitt explains on the official Ubisoft blog. "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."

How are you able to have two playable characters in a game where the story is based around the genetic memories of one person? Well, there's an answer for that, and it's one that adds a quirky twist to a long-accepted bit of Assassin's Creed lore.

"The present-day is set in Abstergo Entertainment - which is this fun, hip company to work for... at first," McDevitt says. Yes, the evil corporation that has hunted players throughout every game has an entertainment division, and is pillaging people's past in search of good stories. As McDevitt explains, "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 IV: Black Flag is out on November 1st for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U. The game will come to PC and next generation console shortly afterwards.
