Assassin’s Creed IV’s First Multiplayer Event: Under Control

Starting this Friday and through the entire weekend, join the Assassin’s Creed multiplayer community in “Under Control”, the first of a series of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag multiplayer events where you will work together with your fellow Assassins and Templars to get everyone special in-game prizes!

Assassin's Creed IV on PS3

For “Under Control”, you will need to play Domination games and pile up territory captures with our most aristocratic characters: the Huntsman, the Puppeteer, the Dandy and the Duelist. For the uninitiated, Domination games will have you and your team working together to capture territories and defend them from the opposing team to score. The team who fills the scoring gauge or obtains the highest score at the end of the countdown wins.

For this first multiplayer event, we’ll be providing community objectives to get awesome in-game prizes. Starting Friday, you can check out the events section in-game to find out what the current community objectives are. Outside of the community objectives, you’ll find a number of things you can win even before reaching the community objective. For instance, you get a unique title just for participating and an exclusive in-game profile picture if you reach the individual objective (15 territories captured).

Unlock these exclusive Assassin costumes by reaching the community objective. Find out what the community objectives are by logging in to Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag.

AC4 Avatars

Get early access to these avatars by playing in the event this weekend and leaving feedback in the PS Community Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag discussion.

However, the grand prize will by unlocked when the whole PS3 community achieves the community objective. We will then release exclusive classy white Assassin costumes for the four characters aforementioned, and you will be able to use them anytime and anywhere you want in the entire multiplayer!

We’re also curious to get your thoughts and feedback on the event as it’s happening. Head to the Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag thread on the PlayStation Community Forums to leave your feedback on the event. Those who participate in the event, and leave their feedback in this thread will get a set of exclusive Assassin’s Creed IV avatars. PlayStation will be sending these to you by voucher code via XMB message, as well as to your email no later than 11/23.

So gather your team and be ready on November 1st to dive in to the first Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag multiplayer event!

Loved these events in AC3, excited we are having one in AC4 so soon after release! Now do we need to leave a comment in THIS thread for the avatars or the forum thread with feedback?

I will be purchasing ACIV on the PS4. Will I be able to have a chance at getting any of these items since I’ll be late to the party? I like the Puppeteer design. I’m hoping she’s an actual character anyone can be and that I won’t miss out my chance on being able to play as her.

    Don’t worry: PS4 players will get all the events and rewards when the game is out! You’ll be able to play as the puppeteer :)

Practicing and honing my skills as I type this. Participated in every AC3 event but on my xbox 360. I wish the stats pulled over through uplay.

Great as always, Ubisoft never fails to impress, The forced load outs are a great idea, especially this early in release, let’s newcomers try stuff they may, or may not, want.

Does the EU get in on this?


+ IRCRomeo on November 1st, 2013 at 8:37 pm said:

Valentin, surely they won’t be able to get the same perks and events for people who bought it on launch, correct?

Just completed the event. I have to say, after playing all of the events on AC3 multiplayer, I did not miss this one bit. These events are usually stressful moreso than fun since it’s difficult to pull off the elite challenges. Particularly now how domination is changed where it’s constantly flipping between sides, it’s more of a pain than ever.

Just tried the event.. good stuff!! keep up the good work..

Love the multiplayer event, but I can not login to the acinitiates site. when i press login, nothing happens. Everyone is running around during matches and not using any tactics though.

My codes say they have been used already. I can’t get my avatars, I don’t know if this problem is on my side or not.
