The first screenshots and trailer for Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag leaked this weekend. However, Ubisoft managed to keep a few things under wraps about the game until today.
Black Flag stars Edward Kenway, a former privateer for the British navy. As wartime ends, Edward and his crew turn to piracy to make a living. In the process, he becomes involved in the centuries-old war between the Templars and Assassins.
The game is set in the West Indies at the start of the 18th century. Edward will sail to over 50 locations in the islands. In the process, he'll meet infamous pirates such as Blackbeard and Charles Vane.
Players can expect to wield traditional Assassin weapons as well as "armaments of the era," such as flintlock pistols. Ubisoft says that the game "rewards both daring and stealth." They also revealed that the multiplayer from previous games will make a return.
Ubisoft confirmed the previously leaked October 29th release date today. They also formally announced the platform list: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, PC and "other next generation consoles." Presumably one of those unnamed consoles is the next Xbox. The PS4 and PS3 versions, as the box art revealed, will get an hour of exclusive DLC.
Two new screenshots from the game are below. You can find the shots revealed yesterday here and the first trailer here.
