Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag boxart appears on Ubisoft forums

UPDATE: Ubisoft confirms game for Xbox 360, promises more on Monday

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag is a game that knows the value of firepower, if this leaked, strictly unconfirmed but highly plausible boxart is any indication. See if you can count all the guns. I suspect he's got one tucked into his boxers.

Black Flag is said to star Edward Kenway, father of Haytham, father of (eventual) Assassin's Creed 3 leading man Connor. He's reportedly "a privateer, assassin and occasional pirate" who spends his days sailing around the Caribbean, shooting/stabbing things and glowering at them. Alleged retailer materials and a screenshot for the game surfaced yesterday.


Who knows? Maybe we'll be able to tell you more soon. Ta, VG247.

Update: Ubisoft has formally announced Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag for Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U, and confirmed the boxart's legitimacy. You can expect full details of the new game on Monday 4th March at 5pm GMT.
