Is that Connor? The costume looks like his some pirate parts added.

Perhaps the new protagonist thing just meant the modern day hero who'll use the Animus?

Anyway I'm totally up for a pirate game, hopefully this will be the first good pirate game.

First screenshot:



Quote:
Today I am bringing you the first rumored image and information known of Assassin's Creed: Black Flag. The main characters name is Edward Kenway, father of Haytham Kenway from Assassin's Creed 3. Edward is known as a Privateer, Assassin and occasional pirate. The games location is set in the Caribbean on multiple islands including Jamaica, Cuba and the Bahamas.

The current game is running on the Xbox 360, but has plans for next generation console's as well. Finally, Darby McDevitt is the lead script writer, with tie in's from previous Assassin's Creed games.

So they're making a game out of the fan favorite aspect of AC3 and showcasing the more interesting side of the family, eh?

Do they really have to call this ACIV though? It seems like more of a spin-off from ACIII than anything else.

Also, as cool as the boat stuff was, I hope it still has its action because I don't know how I'd feel about a game centered around Naval combat.

I hope we can free roam with the boat. Travel to those different islands the same way we could travel from one city to the other via horse in ACIII

It would be very reminiscent of Windwaker, which pretty much had no load time while you were sailing in the sea. I think it would depend on how big and detailed the islands are.

Yea no kidding.

Hopefully this can fill the void of epic high seas swashbuckling action.

First off...pirates are cool.

Second...I'm already more excited for this game than I was the previous game. :P

Hopefully they'll go back to Connor and have him in France after this.

What if instead of having a character using the animus, Connor uses some sort of Native American technique/magic to get training from his grandfather's adventures?

I'm on board. Especially if we get more Haytham.

This would be really cool.

Considering that the naval battles were one of my favorite aspects of AC3, I'm pretty excited by this news. Hopefully they'll expand on that aspect but still give us some proper assassination missions.

Prediction: Your boat will have a hidden blade and you will stab other boats.

Simply by holding down a button your boat will seamlessly be able to climb over islands.

So, the modern day dude(tte) will still be related to Desmond. Unless they are doing something freaky with his body once they stole it.

Maybe Desmond isn't dead? He collapsed...but maybe he's just in a coma?

Nope definitely dead.

I gotta be honest, ever since I heard of the Black Flag rumors I was hoping they wouldn't be true, still am, but it's looking more and more likely. I just don't see the appeal of pirates as much as everyone else. Also the new protagonist being Haytham`s father is so lazy. None of that matters though since i'll still pick this up day one and play the hell out of it.

That's gotta be the least definite death I've ever seen in any medium of fiction.

This conference in London started 3 and a half hours ago. We should be getting official new any minute now.

Or someone at Abstergo is using Desmond's DNA so that someone else can relive his genetic memories.
