Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Announced

Ubisoft have announced Assassins’s Creed IV: Black Flag which gives us a look at the new hero and setting. While there’s not much known about the new hero in the series, the game seems to take place in the world of pirates.

A picture of the new hero is shown above, he looks pretty cool to me. He’s got a cutlass, some flintlock pistols and a not so hidden blade which is worn on the outside of his forearm and of course the trademark hood. More interestingly is that next to our hero is a flag showing the symbol of the Assassins. But of course this is a pirate game, so there is a skull placed in the middle for good measure. Our new assassin is standing in front of a backdrop of a pirate ship and battling pirates.

How do you feel about the new setting? I was always hoping for a Victorian London setting but I’m still pleasantly surprised by this news.
