After a few days of intense speculation, Ubisoft has now gone ahead and officially revealed that Black Flag will indeed be the title of Assassin’s Creed 4. The game is due for a full unveil on Monday, but now we can bring you the official box art, list of platforms so far and some great news for PS3 and prospective PS4 owners.
If you picked up the PS3 copy of Assassin’s Creed 3, you’ll know that it came with 60 minutes of exclusive content comprising of the Benedict Arnold missions. Now, it appears that Sony has managed to acquire the same deal for the next entry, as we can confirm that Assassin’s Creed 4 will also have 60 minutes of content exclusive to the PlayStation versions.
The PS3 box art has been revealed above, showing the exclusive content deal. What we haven’t seen yet though is the PS4 box art, but we’re assuming that the extra content will still apply to the next-gen versions. Aside from PS3 and PS4 versions, AC4 will also be on the way to the Xbox 360, PC, Wii U and the next Xbox as well.
For those hoping that Assassin’s Creed 4 will be a launch title for Sony’s next console, this could well turn out to be a real possibility. The release date of the game is thought to be October 29, while Sony has already said that the PS4 will be launching in the US during the 2013 Holiday Season.
Killzone Shadow Fall and Assassin’s Creed 4 would be two fantastic titles already to pick up. Have a look at the image above and let us know your thoughts on the new pirate-themed game. We’ll let you know more information after Monday’s official reveal. Are you surprised that Sony has managed to get the 60 minutes of exclusive content again?
