Yo ho ho, pirate-themed Assassin's Creed IV confirmed

Format:
Ubisoft has flung open its treasure chest and revealed the fine booty that we'll be receiving later this year, in the shape of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Release Date: 28/02/2013

Ubisoft has flung open its treasure chest and revealed the fine booty that we'll be receiving later this year, in the shape of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

The game has long been rumoured, with Ubisoft confirming only that the next game in the series would feature a new time period, location and lead character. Now we know that the era in question is the early 18th century, the location is the bloodthirsty pirate-infested waters of the Caribbean and the lead character will apparently be Edward Kenway, the grandfather of Assassin's Creed III hero, Connor.

Given the epic naval battles and nautical diversions of the last game, it's a decision that makes a lot of sense, and there's no denying that the swashbuckling adventures that pirates suggest is an excellent fit with the Assassin's Creed template.

The game will be available for PC, Wii U, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with SONY's platform receiving an hour's worth of bonus gameplay, just as with the previous two Assassin's Creed titles. No word yet on whether the game will be released for the next generation consoles which will start appearing on shelves by the end of 2013.

Ubisoft will be revealing more on Monday March 4th, so stay tuned.
