The Assassin’s Creed series has a poster already to promote a game subtitled Black Flag.
Assassin’s Creed has been known for its blatant but limited allowance of blade-induced murder for five games thus far, usually suggesting that we limit our assassinations to people of renown. Murdering too many innocent civilians usually results in “desynchronization,” an event similar to death. It is only similar because the main character doesn’t really die.
The main plot throughout the Assassin’s Creed titles is that you play the role of bartender-turned-bada** Desmond Miles, a guy who basically plays a Matrix-style video game. In the in-game, er, game Desmond lays on a table or a chair and his “ancestral memories” unfold before him.
So far Desmond Miles has played a disgraced Jewish bladesman known as Altair, an Italian freedom-fighter Ezio Auditore Da Firenze, and a Native American revolutionary Noah Watts (Connor) in his journey to become who he was meant to be.
It was said back when the series started that it was planned as a trilogy, with Assassin’s Creed 3 being the final chapter. Apparently it’s not a trilogy after all, according to the Black Flag poster drawn by Spawn creator Todd McFarlane.
Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag supposedly puts you in the role of a pirate in the Caribbean. Yes, Disney fans, you read that right.
According to IGN, the poster for this new game is set to be on display in stores starting March 4.
Are you excited about the newest Assassin’s Creed promised by the Black Flag poster?
