Earlier this month word came out that Ubisoft’s next Assassin’s Creed title will not be called “Assassin’s Creed 4” and was code named “Assassin’s Creed: Golden Age.” Shortly after, news broke that Ubisoft was holding a “mysterious” Assassin’s Creed meeting on February 27th, presumably to show off the next installment in their series, officially titled “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.”
Earlier this week I brought you the first in game image and information known of Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag. This was after marketing material was sent in to Kotaku.
The main characters name is Edward Kenway, father of Haytham Kenway and grandfather of Connor from Assassin’s Creed 3. Edward is known as a Privateer, Assassin and occasional pirate. The games location is set in the Caribbean on multiple islands including Jamaica, Cuba and the Bahamas. The “Captian Kidd’s Treasure” mission From Assassin’s Creed III is the tie in for this game.
The current build of the game is running on the Xbox 360, but has plans for next generation console’s as well. Finally, Darby McDevitt is the lead script writer, with tie in’s from previous Assassin’s Creed games. The PlayStation 3 version, much like past Assassin’s titles, feature exclusive “bonus” content.
That’s all that I have on the latest Assassin’s Creed installment, but stay tuned, as this story is breaking. Be sure to subscribe to me here and follow me on twitter @NicholasGigante for the latest Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag news!
