Today, Ubisoft announced Assassin’s Creed® IV Black Flag, which has been in development for nearly two years. This next installment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, introduces an all new hero, Edward Kenway, “a young British man with a thirst for danger and adventure.”
Edward falls from privateering for the Royal Navy into piracy as the war between the major Empires comes to an end. Edward is a fierce pirate and seasoned fighter who soon finds himself embroiled in the ancient war between Assassins and Templars. Set at the dawn of the 18th Century, the game features some of the most infamous pirates in history, such as Blackbeard and Charles Vane, and takes players on a journey throughout the West Indies during a turbulent and violent period of time later to become known as the Golden Age of Pirates.
Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is set for an October 29, 2013 release on the PS3 with a PS4 date to be announced. “Customers who purchase Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag on PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 can download 60 minutes of additional gameplay via the PlayStation Network after the game’s launch.”
