PlayStation 3 version to have 60 minutes of exclusive content.

Following multiple leaks earlier this week, Ubisoft has confirmed Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC.

The publisher released the game’s box art, starring the new assassin rumored to be called Edward Kenway, and which reveals the PlayStation 3 version to have 60 minutes of exclusive content. View it in high-res at the gallery.

Ubisoft has said more details will arrive on Monday.

Thanks, Edge.

    Will it feature historical people like Captain Jack Sparrow?

    • Dean Winchester

      We can only hope.

      Savvy?

      • KurisuMakise

        Fingers crossed, really like the setting. Should call it Pirates Creed instead hehe.

  • Skerj

    This better be a damn significant upgrade over III to warrant a numbered release.

    • Arthur Lau

      yeah

    • Solomon_Kano

      I’m hoping it is. I mean, they’re giving it its own press conference and 3 didn’t even get one, so surely they’ve got something big to show.

    What ? i thought AC:IV For Ps4 and Next Xbox !!

    Oh Cmon Ubisoft We Have Enough AC in Ps3 And Xbox360. >.<"

    • Simmsville

      I think knocking one more out before the new gen arrives is a smart move. Perhaps it’ll be both gens, with releases on all the consoles simultaneously

      • Zuhri69

        Or maybe, this one is a Spin-off while AC4 on a PS4 is the real deal. Just guesses.

        • DrForbidden

          I don’t think it’s a spin-off as it’s clearly labeled ACIV…

          The spin-offs didn’t get numbers before…

      Might be next-gen, too. Not sure if Ubisoft explicitly said which consoles it’s coming to, or simply put out box art. If it’s the latter, we’re only assuming it’s PS3, 360, Wii U, and PC because of the box art. But then, if it were for next-gen platforms, as well, we likely wouldn’t get box art for that.

        I imagine Ubisoft will release it on next gen consoles as well. They will likely mimic what they are doing with Watch Dogs.

    A pirate….sigh, there goes my samurai and futuristic thought

  • syaznifaiq

    I loves AC but this series really need some break . Nevertheless , still happy that PS3 got exclusive content . i hope many others company especially from japan follow this trend in PS4 ..

  • Dean Winchester

    I’m sure someone will be mad about the PS3 exclusive content but keep in mind MS started the BS tit for tat with all their timed DLC and such.
    Sony just knows how to do it better by having permanent exclusivity for anything from DLC to actual games.

    So much for superior multiplats on that other box eh?

    Not sure about this one… but now I understand the boats in AC3.

    Sal you made my day :-). Thanks very much! Can’t see where the story will take us, with AC3 ending like it did.(better?)

    • Skerj

      That is a total bloody spoiler man, granted I’ve completed 3 but please edit that for people who care and still haven’t.

    • KingNigma

      At least warn us man….

    • http://twitter.com/Kinbushi Richard Tooth

      Sorry! its just the way I see it is, if you haven’t played AC3 why bother looking at AC4? Again sorry people :-)

    I hope they also have a PS4 version.

    Snow became a pirate.

  • DarthBrian

    Are there Devil Fruits in this game? :p

  • Raiyu

    I think they are two seperate games…the character from the first screenshot from a few days ago didn’t have blonde hair.

  • http://gematsu.com/ Zero

    I’m cool with Pirates. I’ve been enjoying doing all the optional Naval missions in AC3.

    I hope that with the game most likely giving you access to the boat early on, you have lots of freedom to explore, sail to places all over the world, etc.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Didn’t they say it’s just the Caribbean? Or, the rumors, though I guess they’re pretty much confirmed now. They said Jamaica, Cuba, and the like would be available.

      I think it’d have been nice to set it in another portion of the world. Pirates in South Africa, India, or China could’ve been incredible. Perhaps we’ll yet see places beyond the Caribbean though.

    AC4 wow they really are doing one every year :D

  • Solomon_Kano

    Wasn’t there supposed to be a whole press conference for this yesterday? They gave us box art and moved it to Monday? Huh.

    Well, I’m interested in seeing what’s so big that they’re giving this one a whole press conference. Should be big.

  • Prodigy-X

    Yes, exclusive content. Hopefully the PS4 gets the same exclusive content as well. Oh yeah rumor has a AC PS Vita game is coming.

  • AnimusVox

    I don’t think I have the energy to care after the let down that was AC3

  • bebestorm117

    I was skeptical with Ubi releasing another AC but I know I’ll end up with this game for certain and I love the exclusives content.

  • Kobracon

    Oooh Pirates. As long as they can still fit awesome Parkour climbing in there, I’ll be happy with it.

  • PrinceHeir

    soo many Assassins Creed :
