Exclusive content for the Ubisoft titles will be available across both PlayStation 3 and the upcoming PlayStation 4.
Ubisoft’s decision to release a variety of exclusives for Sony consoles is not without precedent. The company made a similar deal in 2012 with the release of Assassin’s Creed 3 for PS3 alongside the launch of Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation for PS Vita.
The expanded partnership between Ubisoft and Sony will give PlayStation users access to 60 minutes of additional gameplay, special missions and exclusive rewards for both Assassin’s Creed 4 and Watch Dogs.
The only leading female assassin from the Assassin’s Creed series, Aveline, is set to return in Assassins Creed 4 and, as part of the exclusive content, will headline three of her own missions available only on PlayStation home consoles.
PlayStation users will also have exclusive access to four additional missions in Watch Dogs that will center on a faction fighting for freedom in the digital age. In Watch Dogs, players take on the role of a vigilante named Aiden Pearce who assists the faction in getting revenge against a Chicago tech mogul who wronged them.
Both Ubisoft and Sony view their continued partnership as a way to blaze new trails in the industry by providing end users with a unique experience that can only be found on Sony consoles. Players purchasing Assassin’s Creed 4 and Watch Dogs on another platform are still getting access to tons of hours of gameplay.
Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is set to release Oct. 29 for PS3 and will launch for PS4 sometime within the console’s launch window.
Watch Dogs will be available for purchase on Nov. 19 for PS3 and will also become available for the PS4 system sometime around the system’s launch.
