Ubisoft reveals Assassinís Creed IV: Black Flag box art

By on February 28, 2013, 2:30 PM

Earlier today Ubisoft revealed the box art for Assasin’s Creed IV: Black Flag on Twitter, validating a number of rumors that we have heard about the game this week. The main protagonist could be Edward Kenway, Connor’s (from Assassin’s Creed III) grandfather and a privateer according to at least one source.

The game’s storyline and setting will no doubt take place on the high seas as the box art reveals the game’s hero standing on the deck of a pirate ship with an ominous black flag waving in the background. The adventure is expected to take place in the Caribbean islands including the Bahamas, Jamaica and Cuba.

The single photo is all we have to go on at the moment but we understand that Ubisoft is planning to release more information on the game on March 4. We do know that Ubisoft will release the game sometime during fiscal year 2014 which starts on April 1, 2013 and runs through March 31, 2014.

The PlayStation 3 version of Black Flag will include 60 minutes of exclusive gameplay. This appears to be similar to the four extra missions that PS3 gamers were given in Assasin’s Creed III. Thus far the title has only been announced for the PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and the Wii U. Depending on when the game is released, it’s not out of the question to think we could see it show up on the PS4 and the yet-to-be-announced Xbox 720 as well.

Man, talk about milking the Assassin's Creed line for all its worth. They're going to be releasing these DLC's until we're all 100 years old it seems...

So this is the sixth or seventh game? It would be OK I guess if it was spread out over say 15 years... but one a year is just crazy.

I guess they're milking pre-teens just like with COD..

I lose respect for companies that do this. It does seem like the next game is announced before the previous game is even finished. The saddest part of the Assassin's Creed reiterations when compared to CoD is that at least CoD switches developers between games so it takes two years to develop each one. Ubisoft doesn't pass off development and makes a new game by itself every year.

How about a new Prince of Persia? Those games are better anyway. Assassins Creed was cool at first, then it got it's teats milked dry. Yawn...

I liked Assassin's Creed 2, it was fresh, exciting and a really great game. It all went downhill from there
