Since our first Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag multiplayer event, Under Control, we’ve seen the AC4 community continue to grow. So we’ve got a new one: The Flying Dutchman!
Brace yourself. It’s an absolutely massive week in the world of PlayStation, as assassins, soldiers, shadow lords, and wrestlers roar onto the scene in a varied torrent of gaming goodness. Stock up on snacks, friends. You may be playing for a while.
Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is gearing up for launch on PS3 and PS4. In anticipation of this momentous event, we’ve created a brand new trailer to deliver all the details you’ll need in order to stride confidently in the daunting shoes of Captain Edward Kenway. With compelling characters, an expansive world, and a near-infinite amount of pirate activities to engage in, Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is the largest and most immersive game in the Assassin’s series.
Today we’re rolling out more PS4 game pre-orders on PlayStation Store. Last week, we made Knack and Warframe available for pre-order, and today we’re releasing pre-orders for Killzone Shadow Fall, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, and Battlefield 4. If you pre-order these titles today, you’ll have them when they launch for PS4. As an added bonus, all four games feature exclusive pre-order bonuses.
We’ve got a bunch of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag announcements for you this week, PlayStation Assassins! Let’s get right to it with the announcement of our single-player DLC: Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag: Freedom Cry.
Pirates were a lot of things, but above all, they were ruthless opportunists on the hunt for plunder, booty, fortune… call it whatever you want – Captain Edward Kenway calls it an end to be reached, by any means necessary. With the acquisition of riches his paramount goal, Edward assembles a group of like-minded renegades to take the West Indies for all they’re worth. Watch the video below for a quick peek at how Kenway organizes a world-class pirate heist!
We’re introducing a full crew of rowdy yet realistic buccaneers, privateers and straight-up pirates in Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, so we figured you would benefit from a little face-time with the roughest of them. And who better to cry them out for you than Captain Edward Kenway himself, played by the talented Matt Ryan.
A lot of people have asked us what kinds of technical advancements can be expected from Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag on PS4, so we asked Associate Producer Sylvain Trottier to give us a couple of examples… He went a little nuts, and delivered an entire video detailing a ton of improvements.
