Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Announced

Posted on February 28, 2013 at 9:01 am by Stephen Janes

Developer Ubisoft has officially announced the next installment of their popular Assassin’s Creed franchise, called Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.

In addition, Ubisoft also showed off what will be the box art for the game, prominitely featuring the new assassin. Obviously, this game is destined to rely heavy on naval travel and combat and it’s no surprise given how well received those segments were in Assassin’s Creed III. I really enjoyed the naval combat and various missions in ACIII, so I’m really looking forward to this.

One thing to also note, in the cover art shown below, you can clearly see a black assassin flag with the skull symbol in the middle. I also wonder how many guns are necessary to captain a ship, because I see no less than four on our new assassin friend.

Rumors were suggesting that the next Assassin’s Creed game would feature a new hero and time period, which have finally been confirmed. We still have no idea who the new assassin is and where he comes from or what time period this game takes place in. This information should be released on Monday, March 4th where Ubisoft is set to reveal more about the game, including (hopefully) a release date and if this will be on the next generation consoles.

Are you Geeks ready for another Assassin’s Creed? What time period are you hoping this takes place in? You can also be sure to check out our review on Assassin’s Creed III if you haven’t checked it out. Spoiler alert, it’s worth your money.

    • Ooooh, I like pirate ships. Maybe it will take place in the late 1500's with the Spanish Armada. Seems like an interesting setting where the Spanish and English hated each other. Could be fun to slit throats jumping from ship to ship.

    • It's good that they came up with a new setting and hero for their next release. These will make this game even more interesting.
