Sony and Ubisoft have now formed a team to release a PS4 bundle with Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag. This clearly shows that the team wants to replace the Watch Dogs PS4 bundle which Ubisoft had initially been planning prior to that game’s delay.
The PS4 will be released in Europe on 29th November and on 15th November in North America. On the contrary, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is already out on Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U.
The bundle, which contains a copy of the game with a standard black 500GB PS4 is expected to be launched on November 29. According to the reports, a PS3 Assassin’s Creed IV hardware bundle has been available in UK since the game’s current-gen launched on October 29.
The PS4 and PS3 versions of the game allows the access to PlayStation-exclusive DLC content that provides an extra hour to the main story campaign and is centered on Assassin’s Creed: Liberation protagonist Aveline.
The reports suggest that, Ubisoft has confirmed that at present it has no plans to bring the Sony-exclusive DLC content to other platforms and the firm has also abandoned the ‘Uplay Passport’ initiative, in which the firm’s would take on the ‘Online Pass’ that restricted content for borrowed or second-hand copies of its games, this would have further lifted applicable restrictions in Assassin’s Creed IV, which sparked uproar for placing a core single-player mechanic behind a paywall.
Sony is all set for the PS4 launch on November 15 in US and November 29 in Europe and Latin America.
