Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag players on PlayStation platforms will be able to partake in the game's second time-limited multiplayer event this weekend, "The Flying Dutchman," developer Ubisoft Annecy announced today.

The Flying Dutchman brings a special Artifact Assault mode into Black Flag's multiplayer component. In Artifact Assault, melee kills are deactivated; players will have to use their pistols as they team up to capture artifacts and bring them back to their base.

If everybody joins together to reach the community objective for the weekend, they'll unlock exclusive Assassin costumes. Players can also aim for individual goals, such as capturing an artifact while using the Glimmer ability.

The event will run from Friday, Nov. 29, through Sunday, Dec. 1, in both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions of Black Flag.
