Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag’s first trailer sees underwater chests opened, whales overturned

assassins_creed_4_first_trailer

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag isn’t about American hardcore bands as you might expect, but pirates, which is even better. Here’s a genuinely exhilarating look at what it’s going to play like.

So that’s that. Cor. Now, if you’re a vanilla ice cream person, you might like to buy Black Flag in its normal edition. But if you’re into all that marbled raspberry nonsense, you may be interested to hear that Assassin’s Creed 4 comes in ‘Black Chest’, ‘Buccaneer’, ‘Skull’ and ‘Special’ varieties, available in various stores and localities:

The Black Chest Edition (Uplay exclusive)

  • Premium Quality 55 cm Diorama of Captain Edward on the Jackdaw’s Bow
  • Exclusive SteelBook™
  • High-quality artbook
  • The official soundtrack
  • 2 Lithographs in their protective envelope
  • 2 canvas prints
  • All existing additional Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag Unlockable In-Game Content, including single player missions, skins and weapons
  • Collector’s box

Physical pirate booty:

  • Parchment world map
  • An original Black Flag replica

The Buccaneer Edition (exclusive to Game in the UK & Gamestop in Ireland)

  • Premium Quality Edward Kenway Figurine on the Jackdaw’s Crow’s Nest
  • High-quality artbook
  • The official soundtrack
  • 2 Lithographs in their protective envelope
  • Collector’s box
  • Additional Unlockable In-game Content

The Skull Edition (UK market-wide)

  • Collector Jumbo Steel Case
  • High-quality artbook
  • The official soundtrack
  • 2 Lithographs in their protective envelope
  • Unlockable In-game Content

The Special Edition (exclusive to Game in the UK & Xtravision in Ireland)

  • This special edition will be available at the standard price and includes unlockable in-game content only available at game launch.

In addition to all of that, pre-orderers from Uplay or Game UK, Amazon UK and Gamestop Ireland will be granted an access code to something called The Watch. There, they’ll find private forums, exclusive information, bonus content, rewards and a ‘quest’, which sounds a bit ARG to me. Are you interested in that sort of thing?
