Update: Ubisoft has officially announced Blackbeard's Wrath, the first multiplayer DLC for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will be available later today on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC for $2.99, or for free if you're a Season Pass holder.
As we originally reported below, the DLC will see three new characters join the game's multiplayer: Blackbeard, The Jaguar and The Orchid.
While Blackbeard's skillset will focus on using his strength to throw targets off balance and finishing them off with one clean strike, The Orchid will use the training she obtained serving as a military advisor during China's Qing Dynasty to get the most out of her blade. The Jaguar, meanwhile, is an Aztec warrior from Mexico, working with the Templars and using a discreet axe.

Fez has sold over a million copies across all platforms, according to developer Polytron.
A post on the studio's official site reveals the feat and extends thanks to everyone who made it possible.
"We couldn't have done it without you!" it reads. "Thank you for buying the game!... Thank you for telling your friends about it! Thank you for buying it again when it came out on PC!... Thank you for putting up with the bulls***!"
It's a colossal achievement for the indie game, and has reopened speculation over whether this will convince creator Phil Fish to reconsider making a sequel.
Fez II was announced back in June before being cancelled just over a month later, with Fish largely blaming constant criticism for the decision. The fact work on the sequel ceased surprised both his Polytron co-workers and provoked several declarations of support from other developers, including Gears of War designer Cliff Bleszinkski.

EA has once again scored a perfect 100% on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) “Best Places to Work 2014” Corporate Equality Index, the national benchmarking tool on corporate policies and how they relate to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees.
As described on The Human Rights Campaign's website, the 2014 report found EA to be one of 304 major businesses that earned a top score of 100 percent and the distinction of “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality" - up from 13 businesses a decade ago.
"We are extremely proud of this achievement that recognizes corporate policies and practices that demonstrate a commitment to LGBT equality and inclusion," wrote EA on its website. "In addition to this exciting achievement, EA was busy around the world throughout the year supporting local Pride Parades where our employees live and work. From San Fransisco to Los Angeles, Seattle to Stockholm, Vancouver to Austin and finally in Orlando, everyone who came out to join EA and show their support and pride had an amazing time."

I attacked a tiny toad man.
His son was in the next room. He’d been crying only moments before, and I’m certain he could hear me arguing with his dad through the thin walls. But I didn’t care. I thought that slimy toad lied to me, and I, Sheriff Big B. Wolf, just couldn’t stand for it.
I’m usually the video game nice guy. I save lives, or the whole galaxy if possible. I help those who are less fortunate. I don’t do it for a reward or a stat boost; I do it because, most of the time, those choices line up with what I personally feel is right. And watching my decisions send ripples into a fantastical, virtual world is a kind of magic only games can accomplish.
Rock Band and Dance Central developer Harmonix today confirmed a modest staff reduction, cutting a "small number" of jobs ahead of the holidays due to "shifting staffing priorities."
"We can confirm that a small number of Harmonix employees were let go today," a Harmonix representative told GameSpot after Joystiq broke the news. "This decision was made due to shifting staffing priorities for Harmonix's multiple future projects."
It is unclear how many developers total lost their jobs today or what the company's current headcount is.
This is not the first round of job losses at the Cambridge, Mass. developer this year. The studio also cut a small number of jobs in April, using the same exact quote to describe the cullings as the statement issued today.
Harmonix is currently working on the Xbox-exclusive Fantasia: Music Evolved, but also has other unannounced projects in the works, including possibly a combat-themed game. The studio is not ostensibly looking to staff up significantly, as the outfit only has one open position posted to its website.
Frostivus is finally coming to Dota 2, as indicated by a Valve teaser for the holiday event. "Since last year's celebration was cancelled (the less said about that the better)," the teaser reads, "rest assured that this year's Frostivus will be twice as caring and serene." We don't know when it kicks off quite yet, but its details suggest what may come from it.
Among the hints of things to come is Wreath-Night, a "night for weaving by the hearth. Collect bright winter berries and sprigs of fir, and twist them together into mementos for family and friends." Perhaps this is indicative of a crafting/gifting system for Frostivus 2013. It is, after all, "the season of givening."
The newest update for the PC version of Battlefield 4 should fix chronic crashes and a host of minor problems, according to the Battlefield 4 blog on Battlelog.
The patch will solve issues with frequent client crashes, which have also affected the console versions of Battlefield 4, as well as camera issues when crouching, vehicle issues on specific maps, a bug that changes victory conditions in Defuse mode, and corrupted save files.
The issues plaguing all versions of Battlefield 4 have already led developer DICE and publisher EA to suspend any further expansions or DLC until all problems are solved.
