Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag packshot arrives


Ubisoft has today released the official packshot for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

Information on the game will not arrive until next week, so there is not a lot we can tell you at the moment. What we do know is that the PS3 version seems to have 60 minutes of exclusive content, but until more information is available you'll just need to check out the pretty picture.

What do you think?

On the bright side you can pre-order below. So if the picture makes you that excited, then we've already got you covered.

I read somewhere that the protagonist is going to be Haytham's father. That presents a few dodgy scenarios for me. None that I can mention without spoiling AC3 for those that haven't played it. Oh well. This'll probably be the first AC game I don't buy on release day. Starting to feel the hand around the tit milking this poor franchise now

Didn't Brotherhood and Revelations not do that already?

I wouldn't say so for brotherhood. I really liked it. Revelation, absolutely. But I gave AC3 it's chance and it, for the most part, paid off. But as a fan of the franchise (I went away from PC gaming and bought my first PS3 on AC release day due to delay on PC) I feel like I'm being taken advantage of now. I never saw Ubi pulling the Acti/EA yearly model thing to death. But I was clearly wrong. They have half listened to the players that loved Haytham from AC3 and then found a way to go around the issues caused by the ending (and middle) of AC3 and gone to this. Instead of doing a Brotherhood/Revelations style continuation and Making Haytham the main protagonist (That game, I would have bought day one)

Well it has become kind of like COD with a yearly release. As long as they can keep the quality up. I kind of lost interest after Brotherhood.

So new AC is a prequel to AC3 but they're giving it a sequel numbering scheme by calling it AC4? Looks like someone at Ubisoft was playing Snake Eater recently... That or they've cottoned on to the fact that the spin off titles always sell much worse than the numbered entries.

It's a shame because Brotherhood was probably the best entry to the franchise

2 was by far the best

Brotherhood and Revelations all had higher pre-order levels than #2 so it isn't true about the spinoffs doing worse. It's a bit weird going this way though.

2 is my favorite from the franchise to date :)

Considering they continued the main plot of the game in Brotherhood and Revelations makes the numbered continuity a bit dodgy anyways. Really this should be number 6. The only ones I can consider to not be part of the main series are the DS, PSP and PSV games.

Feels a bit ironic to me having a more naval/sea theme as IMO this franchise has pretty much jumped the shark

Until it does it in a boat, the series continues

AC franchise isn't as exciting as it was before. Just like Gloria said, my first reaction was: "Meh."

A female lead would be a great idea for the new Assassins Creed.

You wont play as the guy on the front until 30 hours in. You will play as his cleaning lady until then so you may well get your wish.

From what I read elsewhere apparently this guy is Connor's grandfather.

"agree with beazi a female lead would be brilliant. I cant believe this is coming soon though"

We just had a female lead. Although agreed, a Female lead Pirate would be too much awesome. Overall I kinda feel meh about this. This is really the....7th? Proper title. Not to mention the handful of DS and PSP games the series got. It just feels really stale and the ideas they got few and far between. Saying that, it's a pirate one, and should have the naval battles back. So that makes me more excited than the previous ones. Personally I woulda dropped the whole Assassin's Creed gimmick and just made a genuine pirate game. But I guess that would sell a whole lot less

I thought Liberation had a female lead.

i am very uninterested in assassins creed now. too much too soon. would have maybe considered it if it was in a better timeframe but pirates do not interest me. had no intrest in pirates of the carribean and have no interest in this either. will be able to have a nice break from the series now and see what they come out with next.
