As you may or may not have heard/read – Ubisoft recently announced the latest addition to the Assassin’s Creed family, titled “Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag” and apparently there’s going to be pirates in the Caribbean. To the disappointment of some and to mixed emotions. But more about that later. Kotaku and Eurogamer.net report the confirmation from Ubisoft’s conference from earlier in the week (Which is embargoed until Monday, meaning that we normal mortals will get all the available news then).
As soon as the confirmation and details started surfacing, fans started discussing all kinds of interesting things. Such as: why this is the right choice for the franchise, the reason behind the direction, how we’ll be playing main and new protagonist (oh, and here’s a look at the man himself, if we’ll see the return of the hook blade, if tree running will still be possible (which is still one of my favorite features from AC3), why the Assassin’s would be pirates/privateers, all kind of curious historic details to the era and that we should wait until we have more information till we pass judgement. Well, until we know more you can keep an eye on the official websites countdown which promises a reveal on Monday.
Makes you wonder what kind of world’s we’ll be seeing next…
And until the official release of the trailer (It’s been leaked – a light search and it’s fairly easy to find), here’s couple of things to keep you preoccupied:
Redditors wonder: What do we know of Desmond’s mother? A thread on Costume help, in hunting down a replica of a hidden blade. A redditor re-created the Codex from Assassin’s Creed 2 and has made it available for download. and Kotaku has an interesting article about Aveline: This Assassin’s Creed Heroine Is a Great Black Game Character. Here’s How It Happened.
And that’s all I have for you today but Monday promises more news about AC4 Black Flag.
