It was not so long ago that we were desperately trying to foil the Templar plot that was set to undo the work of the Patriots. Ubisoft had all ready stated at the beginning of the year that there would be another Assassin’s Creed game, featuring a new hero and a new environment, but did give away much more than that. Today however, Ubisoft released the official art work for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. As both the title and art work suggests that the plot will involve pirates, confirming rumours that began circulating a few weeks ago.
The first concrete details emerged when Kotaku unveiled that they had an animated poster, not dissimilar to the official box art, showing the protagonist fighting a number of pirates. On the reverse of the poster was a detailed map of the Caribbean, perhaps a hint at the next setting. Other details that emerged stated that the game was set in 1715 and stars Edward Kenway, father of Haytham and grandfather of Connor, the two protagonists of Assassin’s Creed III. While this is indeed exciting news, it is worrying to think that Ubisoft may be churning out titles for the sake of it to keep afloat one its strongest franchises. Ubisoft will be officially announcing the game of Monday March 4th.
