    Ubisoft today announced Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, the next installment in the company’s best-selling Assassin’s Creed series. Titled “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag”, the game introduces an all new anti-hero and pirate setting, and promises to feature the most diverse and seamless Assassin’s Creed world ever created.

    In development for nearly two years, the game is being spearheaded by one of the veteran Assassin’s Creed teams in Ubisoft Montreal with support from Ubisoft studios in Annecy, Bucharest, Kiev, Quebec, Singapore and Sofia. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be released on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, PC and other next generation consoles (I imagine this means the soon-to-be-announced Xbox 720). The game will be available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U on October 29, 2013.

  • Watch the first Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag trailer here:

    Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag tells the story of Edward Kenway, a young British man with a thirst for danger and adventure, who 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, in 1715, 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. Stand amongst legendary names as you establish a lawless Republic in the Bahamas and relive the truly explosive events that would later to become known as the Golden Age of Pirates.

    Gameplay in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is based upon the franchise’s proven tenets. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag features a vast open world with more than 50 navigable locations. Combat combines the weaponry of the Assassin’s Order with armaments of the era, and rewards both daring and stealth. And the series’ acclaimed multiplayer experience is more varied and ruthless than ever in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.

    Buyers of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag on PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 can download 60 minutes of additional exclusive gameplay via the PlayStation Network after the game’s launch.

    Meet Edward Kenway, a brash and rebellious pirate, trained by Assassins. Discover this new charismatic hero in this Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag video:

    Yves Guillemot, chief executive officer at Ubisoft, had this to say about the game:

    “With the new hero and new setting we are creating the boldest and most unique Assassin’s Creed game yet, while still respecting the pillars of the franchise that have made it such a fan favorite. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is based on a true, harsh and exciting part of a legendary era and will thrill longtime fans and newcomers alike.”

    Jean Guesdon, Creative Director on the game, was interviewed about the new Pirate setting, new hero Edward Kenway, next gen version, new gameplay features, the present day narrative, naval combat and whether the game deserves the number in its title.

      YOSH, PS4 version for XD

    • http://www.videogamesblogger.com Ferry

      I’ve played them all on Xbox 360, so it’s Xbox 720 for me. :P

    • Fahd Al Zarooni

      NICE, I actually tried playing Assassin’s Creed games on Xbox 360, and the controls were a lot better on Xbox 360, but since Dualshock 4 will be an improvement over dualshock 3, I will pick up the PS4 version, say, when do you think they will release Xbox 720?

    • http://www.videogamesblogger.com Ferry

      Yeah, that’s true about the controls. I’m curious if Xbox does something new there too.

      I’m just guessing here, but I think both the PS4 & Xbox 720 will go head-to-head mid-November this year. At the very least in Japan and America, other regions might get a delay to early 2014 if they can’t make enough consoles for all regions. But Sony and Microsoft really seem to want to be the first ones out with a new console for the next generation. E3 is going to rock this year, that’s for sure! :D
