Ubisoft's newest instalment in the Assassin's Creed franchise has finally cast off, despite a launch riddled with leaks.
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will see players experience the true 'golden age of piracy' in what Ubisoft believes to be 'the most varied world we've ever made in an AC game.'
Set to launch on November 1st on PC, Xbox 360, PS3, WiiU – and even next-gen offerings PS4 and possibly the Xbox 720 – Black Flag will not be the DLC or spin-off that many were expecting and will in fact be an entirely new story, complete with new characters and locations.
As hinted by its title, Black Flag will be a pirate game. But Ubisoft has said it will 'shy away from clichés' and offer a sea-plundering experience much different than that, which is often portrayed by Hollywood.
