A new Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag downloadable content (DLC) drops today in the form of a new multiplayer content pack dubbed Blackbeard's Wrath.

Gamers will have to wait a little longer for new story content but Blackbeard's Wrath offers up three new characters to the game's online line-up. Gamers can take on the role of fuse-happy gun-toting Blackbeard, the “good and mighty” Aztec Templar, Jaguar and Orchid, the flower of the East and maybe a nod to the Asia's storied pirate past. Each new character has a unique skill and finishing move to boot.

Gamers who've already grabbed the game's Season Pass are already getting the update. Others can pick up the multiplayer DLC on the cheap for $2.99.

A story expansion for Black Flag is coming very soon with Freedom Cry DLC dropping on December 17.
