Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag Details Appear Ahead of Reveal

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is believed to be this year’s follow up to Assassin’s Creed 3. It’s a pirate-themed game that follows Connor’s grandfather, Edward Kenway, as he explores the 18th century Caribbean.

Ubisoft will be holding the Assassin’s Creed event tonight, but it seems that some sources just had to spill some beans.

Kotaku posted an image of an Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag poster which, when flipped over, revealed the game’s world map.

The game features Caribbean locations such as Havana, the Cayo Islands and Florida. There is also a new Assassin Brotherhood logo that resembles a skull n’ crossbones.

The poster (see above image) shows Edward Kenway steering a ship while fending off pirates with a pistol.

A source claims that Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is due out ‘Holiday 2013′, while a second source stated that the game will focus heavily on naval combat and will come with the tag-line, “Survival is the Only Thing Worth Dying For.”

The game’s trailer is rumored to feature the music of Johnny Cash and will see Edward Kenway being chased by British Royal Navy officers.
