Another year, another Assassin's Creed. Ubisoft today announced a hefty limited edition for their newest installment, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, unofficially known as Assassin's Creed IV: Pirates are Cool. What do I mean by "hefty," you wonder? Well, it's pretty expensive, but the edition does uphold that quality we're used to seeing from Assassin's Creed special editions.
For $129.99 USD, North America's Black Flag limited edition includes the following along with the game itself:
- Copy of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag
- A stunning 18” Assassin statue featuring Captain Edward Kenway
- An embroidered 28” x 48” iconic Assassin’s Creed pirate flag with crest
- Exclusive 80-page art book
- SteelBook game case
- Full game soundtrack
That's pretty similar to what we saw with the Assassin's Creed III special edition, which should bode well for the quality of the statue. Might be rather fitting to put Edward Kenway on your shelf next to his descendant.
In addition to that bit of pirate news, a new trailer was also released today. The game may not be out yet, but Black Flag sure has a lot of these trailers to show for itself.
No gameplay or story revelations here; just a montage of in-game footage from cutscenes and combat. Oh, and you'll see a lot of boats.
