Assassin’s Creed of the Carribbean

Alright, the annual output of the franchise will be called Assassin’s Creed 4:Black Flag. The black flag probably does not mean a disqualification. We will slip into the role of an Assassin pirate. Sounds pretty cool now, doesn’t it? Apart from maybe an Assassin pirate ninja cyborg, nothing can beat the awesomeness of an Assassin pirate.

Anyway, let’s think about Assassin’s Creed 4:Black Flag for a moment. First, the name. Assassin’s Creed 4? Really? Come on, Ubisoft, this can’t be right.

Then … pirates? No big cities, no Assassin brotherhood? Seems like Assassin’s Creed 4:Black Flag is likely to put an emphasis on naval battles. Yes, they were fun in Assassin’s Creed 3. Because they were optional. And there were not too many.

Now there are two ways this could play out. Option 1: Many naval battles, small islands to explore, 1 or 2 big hubs. Option 2: A huge open sea world with some cities, more villages and many islands. Considering Ubisoft’s annual output and us liking naval battles, option 1 seems like a safe, and rather sad, bit.

Anyway, Ubisoft has just released the first trailer for Assassin’s Creed 4:Black Flag. There are rumours the main character will be a man called Edward Kenway, and he might be the father of our favourite colonial era James Bond, Haytham Kenway (you know, Connor’s father and stuff).

Rabidgames wonders: We have a name and a trailer. And rumours. And a fucking awesome pirate/Assassin flag. There are two big questions: Will the game be open-world? And will it be a next-gen game? Only time will tell how and where we will be able to capture vessels in the way of a proper pirate …
