Assassin's Creed heading to India, hints writer

Format:
We haven't yet got our hands on Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Release Date: 23/07/2013

We haven't yet got our hands on Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, the pirate-themed entry in Ubisoft's blockbuster series, but there are already hints about where the historical saga may go next.

The most recent clue comes in the shape of an official spin-off comic, Assassin's Creed: Brahman. As the title suggests, it's set in 19th century India, in the days of the Raj when the country was part of the British Empire, and comes from the same creative team which produced the previous Russian-themed Assassin's Creed comics, The Fall and The Chain.

The main character is Arbaaz Mir. According to the comic's synopsis, Mir must "face down a foe who subjugated his land and people, who's now in possession of an artefact that may be a very powerful Piece of Eden."

Mir's modern day counterpart is Jot Soora, a programmer working at Abstergo, the villainous Templar corporation which hounded Desmond Miles throughout his starring role in the previous games.

"We wanted to do something different - tell a type of story never before seen in the Assassin's Creed universe - and touch on corners of the brand not yet explored by the video games," said Brahman writer Brenden Fletcher on Ubisoft's UbiWorkshop website. "Brahman answers a lot of questions and opens a ton of new doors. Fans who want to know what the future holds for Assassin's Creed beyond Back Flag would be advised to give it a read! Hint! Hint!"

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is out for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U on November 1st. A PC version will follow shortly after, as will versions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The PlayStation versions of the game will contain additional content.
