Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is an action-adventure video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. It is the sixth major installment in the Assassin’s Creed series and a sequel to 2012’s Assassin’s Creed III, though it is a prequel in its ancestral storyline.
In Black Flag, players play as Edward Kenway, a pirate in 18th Century Caribbean during the Golden Age of Piracy. The game features a large focus on naval combat and exploration, mechanics that were first introduced in Assassin’s Creed III.
Several Assassin's Creed titles, Saints Row 4: Re-Elected, Stray, and classics like LocoRoco Midnight Carnvail are also coming next week.
