PlayStation snagged exclusive DLC for both Watch Dogs and Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag. But, "exclusive" typically means "timed exclusive" in this business, and that happens to be the case here too.

The 60 minutes of new gameplay promised for both games are exclusive to PlayStation platforms for 6 months only, a new video released by PlayStation reveals. That means you'll likely be able to play as Aveline on Xbox and PC just by being a little bit more patient.

Of course, Ubisoft could choose not to release the content on other platforms at all. For example, the PS3-exclusive Benedict Arnold missions for Assassin's Creed 3 never made it to any other platform.

      The Benedict Arnold missions weren't strictly PS3 exclusive, they also came to PC

      Lol who wants to beat the game then come back to it in 6 months? Do people actually do that if it isn't out of nostalgia?

        Probably younger people that don't have disposable income in the same way young adults without kids do.

        I mean, don't you remember having only a few new games a year (assuming your parents weren't rich), and then just playing them to death until you could get a new one?

      The Aveline dlc is already part of the gold edition for the PC on Steam, mostly likely at launch like it was for the Benedict Arnold dlc on PC for AC3.

        I didn't care for AC4 until I saw that DLC where you play as the former slave now assassin Adéwalé who looks FRICKING AWESOME and IMO looks like he should have been the MC for IV
