So the next installment in the Assassin's Creed franchise has been officially confirmed. I was a little skeptical when the news first broke, or rather, was 'leaked', but now that it has been confirmed, the excitement is beginning to build.
Assassin's Creed has been a fan favourite for years now, and this new game will be no exception. I am looking forward to the new direction it seems to be taking: pirates.
Obviously with the protagonist being Connor Kenway (the protagonist of the previous chapter)'s grandfather, there will probably be little references and subtle nods to Assassin's Creed III. The timeline however, with this being prior to the events of ACIII, might make those nods a little difficult.
With Assassin's Creed III, as most of you will know, there was an insane amount of collectible goodness. From the Join or Die Edition, to the UbiWorkshop Edition, to all the little tidbits that were dished out as preorder bonuses all across the globe, it certainly proved to be a monumental task to collect, even for the most hardcore of collectors. I, myself, managed to gather quite a lot of Assassin's Creed III goodies, but my bank account simply couldn't keep up with the onslaught of purchases, so in the end, I did miss quite a fair bit.
I aim to do my best with collecting this year's variety of goodies for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, but my purse is already shuddering at the thought.
But at least the game itself should be good, and I definitely can't wait to play it.
What are your thoughts on the announcement of ACIV?
