We'll get the full rundown in a matter of hours but in the meantime, five screenshots from the new Assassin's Creed have been leaked .
You can see two of them here; click through the link to see the others. The new hero's name is Edward Kenway and obviously, there's a pirate theme, too. Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will undoubtedly feature naval battles, along with new missions set in "lush, tropical" surroundings, and players will be able to use both swords and pistols. That's nothing new, though.
There was a trailer as well but that has since been removed. I'm sure we'll see it again when it becomes official some time later today. Ubisoft Montreal lead content manager Carsten Myhill said on Twitter that this whole Black Flag issue has been "leakier than the Titanic." Well, that's okay, right?
The game is supposed to launch on October 29 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, although it may also come to the PS4 and Wii U. Can't wait for the unveiling!
