Popular game developer Ubisoft will soon be releasing the next installment of its ‘Assassins Creed’ series, titled ‘The Watch – Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag’. The new game’s scheduled release date is October 29, 2013 and the pre-order is already available.
There are some good news ahead for all ‘Assassins Creed’ enthusiasts, as pre-order bonus is available and it is absolutely free. In case you cannot wait to get your copy and enjoy lots of hijinks on the high seas, keep on reading.
Enigmatically called ‘The Watch’, this ultimate fan platform can be accessed when the player logs in using the special pass code given once the ‘Black Flag’ is reserved at chosen retailers and synched to the player’s Uplay account. After that, the portal that opens reveals an online playground where official and fan-made content can be further explored.
Even though this is just the beginning, a certain amount of content is already available on the site and it is very simple to navigate. The content is constantly being updated, which is great and the studio promises a lot more news, information and upcoming events, as well as picture galleries and videos in the near future. As everything is meant to be shareable, it definitely has a social media vibe to it.
When the player takes part in different missions, rewards can be earned by interacting with the community. The ‘Behind The Black Flag’ articles are very important and maybe the highlight so far, as they take the player to early 1700s and explain more about the pirate life, locations and characters.
