Assassin’s Creed 4 Multiplayer Characters Unlockables

On Xbox 360, PS3, PC, PS4 & Xbox One you unlock 3 new playable multiplayer characters by buying Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag downloadable content (DLC is not available on Wii U I’m sorry to say). They are the gruff and short-tempered Blackbeard, the Aztec templar known as The Jaguar, and the graceful negotiator The Orchid.

  • Blackbeard
    How To Unlock: Unlocking is done by buying & downloading the “Blackbeard’s Wrath” DLC Pack for $2.99, or you get it for free as part of the Season Pass DLC.
    Bio: Gruff, and short-tempered, Blackbeard uses fear to get his way. — He uses his strength to throw targets off balance only to finishing ’em off with one clean strike — Although little is known of his early life, he is believed to have been born between 1680 and 1685, in Bristol, and took to the sea from as young as sixteen years of age. By 1717, he had become a pirate icon.
  • The Jaguar
    How To Unlock: Unlocking is done by buying & downloading the “Blackbeard’s Wrath” DLC Pack for $2.99, or you get it for free as part of the Season Pass DLC.
    Bio: Cuali (a name which means “good” in Nahuatl) is an Aztec warrior from Mexico, who took to the sea, joining any mission that would allow him to combat the Spanish conquest of central America. A fighter — wielding a discreet axe — he survived the destruction of his community and went on to join forces with a growing contingency of native Templars who sought renewed peace and order.
  • The Orchid
    How To Unlock: Unlocking is done by buying & downloading the “Blackbeard’s Wrath” DLC Pack for $2.99, or you get it for free as part of the Season Pass DLC.
    Bio: The daughter of a rebel, she grew up fighting. As a young woman, she developed a talent for negotiation, and a knack for languages. She broke ties with her family to serve as a military advisor for a Qing dynasty general her father opposed, and ultimately performed so well, she was granted a diplomatic post. Using piracy as a cover for her political activities — and as an excuse to use her blade — she traveled the world, eventually banding with the Templars to serve her ultimate desire for negotiated order.
