We've had one for every AC as far as I can remember. I know its still early but I keep on searching in different threads for new screenshots so I thought I'd move them all here centrally. Try to keep them on here so that it makes it easier for everyone else as well.

FYI - not all 'official' facebook pages are that.. some say they are.. ;)




So, be very careful about posting leaks etc from them - since it can result in threads being deleted.

Since this is coming to next-gen too, I think this could be an actual in-game scene. The only thing making me doubt that is the short time it seems to have taken to make the game. Well, except they also worked on this secretly for years with next-gen graphics in mind.

By the way, the boxart looks very very similar to the AC3 one. I really wish some publishers would have the balls to make a really original boxart once in a while. I mean, does having a generic boxart really help getting the sales up so much? I don't know anyone, even non-gamers, who buys games based on the boxart.

I don't know why, but that pic of Edward standing on the shore with (possibly) Jenny is both beautiful and sad at the same time. Anyone got a link to a higher res version? This is also the first tie we're seeing an assassin who has a family to care about. Would be interesting to see how it changes things.

Without spoiling anything too major in Forsaken, she's Haytham's older half-sister.

So in contrast to Connor, Edward might get a bit of romancing going in Black Flag...

Jenny was Edward's first child before Haythem. Haythem and Jenny had different mothers. Jenny knew Edward was an Assassin, whilst Haythem did not, until much later when Jenny tells him as an adult.

In the book, it sounds like Edward's first wife knew Edward during his heyday as an Assassin, whilst during Haythem's life Edward leads more of a settled down life of the noble kinda life. Semi retired Assassin.

Okay, i'm thinking he's definitely left handed, every picture i've seen he's had a sword in his left hand, or in a position that makes it easy to take out with his left hand. Could be interesting. Link was left handed.

Or ambidextrous, but using his sword with his left.

And i'm sure there was 1 more.

Also on the boxart, the hidden blade on his right hand, that looks a lot like a primary hidden blade, which classically goes on the off-hand. But the left one can't be seen, so that take that as evidence.

Andre, The pic of edward isn't mirrored. The flintlock pistol, the hammer is on the right side of the gun, which is where the hammer is supposed to be.

this can't usually happen due to edward passing on his genes so memories will stop, that's why I think connor will be in this game, i think we will play the first sequence as him, he will find a special memory seal in which edward put all his memories on, we will play his entire life and end the game with one sequence with connor.

it would also lend itself to lead perfectly into another connor game in 2014....or they could have the next game as connors son in the french revolution with connor also being playable but thats going too far ahead i guess, need to see how ac4 turns out.

It can obviously happen. Since Connor's lineage comes from Haytham which is his second child. He can still interact with Jenny.

Armour to stop himself dying. 4 guns = 4 shots. 4 shots is better than 2 shots.

ah yeah i see, this skipped my mind, but i would prefer the memory seal idea i had, then we can see young haytham and see edwards end, it will also give us a chance to see connor.

hence the idea of the memory seal which i already said, connor will see edwards memories through 1 memory seal which can hold all the memory content.

The Blackbeard-concept art really does not look like usual npc concept art, but one for playable characters. Maybe we will indeed have co-op to a certain extent or even play as Blackbeard for whatever reason - that would explain the great emphasis all promotional media is putting on him.

That wouldn't make any sense unless Blackbeard and Edward are related. The only reason we're now able to play as Edward is because he shares Connor's DNA which Abstergo obtained from Desmond. We don't have Blackbeard's DNA.

Who knows, the guy probably had illegitimate kids all up and down the Eastern Seaboard. Abstergo may have chased one of their descendants down.

I still don't particularly LIKE the idea of playing as someone besides Edward, but it's possible.

I know Naval multiplayer isn't included, but didn't Ubisoft have a secret survey which pretty much confirmed coop? Any sources about coop being absent from the game? I was already fantasising sailing the Caribbean sea along my friend and stealthily assassinating our targets. I also believe that the game description states that you can sail the seas alone or with your friends. If such claims of your hold any truth, then I'll be a very sad man.

Has it really been confirmed that only Desmond's DNA has been extracted though? Project Legacy was most likely based on extracted genetic memories too after all - and if Abstergo managed to get the DNA of Charles II., they surely could get Blackbeards too, assuming that he slept with quite a lot of women. Remember that Abstergo keeps searching for people with usable DNA (like Darwin's for example, also noted in Project Legacy).

I'm not saying that this is right. I just find it really strange that Blackbeard gets so much concept art and is somewhat of the main character in the first trailer released. He will definitely be more than an NPC, hands down. But what role he will play exactly - time will tell.

Every named characther needs to be specifically designed, so they all get concept art... I doubt he will be mroe than an NPC, you do know NPC means non playable cahractehr right?

Sure, sure, but this time around we get a huge load of concept art for Blackbeard as the only character besides the protagonist. This is very unusual - imagine we only got concept art of Connor and Washington, right after the announcement of AC3 , with Washington being fully armed with different gadgets on the concepts. This kind of concept art is usually only for the main character or your main enemy (like Cesare back when ACB was announced) - and I doubt that Blackbeard as an enemy. Anyway, this is just pure speculation, so don't take it too serious, just thought I'd point that out ;)

Well, not to burst your bubble, but Ubisoft released it as cosplay reference. However, the description I quoted clearly shows coop, so the whole cosplay reference thing might be just shrouding the fact that there is coop. Along with the coop survey, there is a chance, be it slight or not, that we'll be allowed coop gameplay. Would be the biggest set of coincidences if there is no coop.

Just imagine planning an assassination with your friend. You drive your target to sea, with your friend as BlackBeard. Both of you set out to board the enemy ship, then clear of spanish galleons like they were nothing, together, or maybe you drag him out into the open then your friend ambushes him? The possibilities are endless. This game is just made for coop.

Don't remind me.... The original concept art of the Colonial outfit was one of the reasons I pre-ordered the game. False advertising at its worst.

The second picture makes me think armor might be back in the game, although possibly only for aesthetic reasons. I like that he's not wearing the hood, it gives me hope we might be able to walk around in some not-so-assassiny outfits. But we'll see if they don't end up changing the art for the final product.

Yes, agreed. I don't like that beard = older. It means lazy and cba to shave :p

Yea you can see the wrinkles around the nose and the beard are really starting to kick in. They said he is around 20 when we start with him in 1715 and that it spans a decade so I think he should be 30 here in 1725 and he has probably already had Haytham.

Farlander1991

The only way we'll see young Haytham is if we play as young Haytham (considering that as far as I understand we're still watching Desmond's ancestry, and the way Animus works we can't control Edward after Haytham was concieved... and even then, isn't Haytham the last child of Edward anyway? So there's absolutely nobody who can relive his life later than Haytham's birth).

But how? Doesn't Edward have his daughter earlier then Haytham? we are still controlling Edward for all that time.

Yeah, so? We're viewing Edward from Haytham's line, Haytham is the stopping point.

If Jenna were to be the ancestor (that was his daughters name, wasn't it?), then we would be able to relieve Edward's memory only until she is conceived (and therefore wouldn't be able to look at the period currently shown in the Black Flag).

EDIT: Look at it this way, you're transferring your memories to the child when he is conceived, and any new memories of yours can't go there (because they were already transferred). But you're still making new memories, that will be transferred to the NEXT child, if you're going to have any.

So, let's say, we show Edward's life in percentages. Like, he's dead at 100% :D

So, for example, he conceives Jenna at 30%. So, whoever is Jenna's descendant can look at his life only from 0 to 30%.
He conceives Haytham at 60%. So, whoever is Haytham's descendant can look at his life only from 0 to 60%.

They went around this issue with Altair in Revelations by introducing memory seals (we're still reliving Ezio, who looks at Altair's memory seals)... but the Kenway family didn't have much exposure to the TWCB artifacts it seems (well, not as much as Altair at least), so I don't think memory seals would be appropriate for Edward.

Ok now I get it Lol, Looks like they will have to end it right when Haytham is born or something. I hope Edward can get his hands on some TWCB tech, would be interesting.

Did you check any 'passages of time' mentioned from 'The Cave' scene up to Haytham's final playable section memory & a 9 month pregnancy ?
I thought some time overlap had to have occured at some point from conception , Haytham's last memory & Connor's birth date ....................... (though i haven't replayed since Nov ).

According to Forsaken, the Cave seen occured on July 10 1755, and Lee's induction into the Templar order was three days later.
Haytham and Ziio spent about three weeks together after that. I guess it happened in these three weeks.

Yeah, I know. I mean, I really enjoyed the greek fire mission in ACR, even though it was explosions and fire everywhere ;) But AC is sadly moving further and further away from actual freedom. And now the devs promised they want to return to the franchise's roots when it comes to that yet post this picture at the same. The freedom is the same as the random missions - I doubt that we'll ever really get it.

The devs want to return to the franchise's roots my ***. They said that after they saw the general consumer's feedback (to attract/probably deceive the ones who weren't happy with AC3). They knew the Caribbean were not the ideal setting for a true assassin's creed game and that it would make it look like anything but a pirate game and they still chose it. Not only that but they also focused a lot on naval battles (one of the features that has less to do with AC but also the one that has the biggest chance to empty more wallets) and all that the trailers have shown so far are explosions and flashy kills with twin swords (plus one single assassination - wow). Now we get this post that clearly shows a linear sequence... This is why my hype for AC4 is "zero". I couldn't care less for a linear experience about pirates. Show me open ended assassinations, random events, stealth, conspiracies and holsters and I'll be hyped.

It's not just about the breasts, in the historical depiction she looks manly and 'real', in Ubisoft's depiction she's completely sexualised - ironic considering she actually has her breasts out in the former.
I also doubt it's a disguise, I don't think they'd create artwork for a disguise.

As someone pointed out already, at least Ezio was wearing pants (which I don't find tight at all to be honest).
Plus you're forgetting Ezio can jump from buildings mere mortals would die if they jumped from. Game logic of course.

Also, try killing someone and then running as Anne Boby is depicted in this design... How would someone be comfortable and fight like a pirate, board ships etc in these clothes? O_o This is much worse than slighly tight pants I tell ya... lol
(plus, unlike fictional Ezio, Anne's clothes are historically inaccurate. She's been sexed-up even though she was dressed like a man as a pirate).

Ezio was designed to seem sexy so women would buy the game, and connor was all buff and stuff for the same reason, because our culture is a female dominated one, that's why women get payed more and men aren't allowed to vote.

okaaay.... now you're trolling. :) (I'm female and Ezio was my least fave AC character for THIS reason by the way). ;)

Just because there's a concept of Anne Bonny in a very feminine outfit doesn't mean that this is what she'll be wearing all the time (I'm not saying it can't be, because it very well could, which would be disappointing, but still). It's not like Ubisoft never does practical clothing for female characters or anything like that.

Well, women in AC never actually DO anything, the only 3 actual characters (ignoring the MP ones) were Maria, Rosa and Dobby, and they all dressed practically.

And i suppose Claudia, Which is a good point, when claudia actually became an assassin, she changed clothes, so Bonny will probably do the same, change clothes that is.

When does Bonny's pirate career start in relation to the game's timeline, btw?

My best friend is female and got into AC because she thinks Ezio is hot.

So, apparently, Anne Bonny started her pirating career with Calico Jack somewhere between 1718-1719, while she moved to Nassau somewhere between 1714-1718... I don't think it's too far stretch of an imagination to presume that the concept art is for Anne before she actually gets into piracy.

EDIT: Also, I don't know if it's true, but some Internet sources state that Anne and Mary Read would wear woman's clothing while on board and then change to men's clothing when it looked like there would be some fighting soon.

EDIT2: It seems like a lot of pirates die or end their careers around 1718-1721, I wonder what is going to happen between then and 1725? (Well, there's Edward Low who dies in 1724, but that's mostly it)

Meh. Mildly disappointed by Bonny's outfit, but at least she doesn't have the frakkin' huge breasts that I was beginning to think were a requirement for Ubisoft females. Dem MP characters, lol.

Yes, and it's unlisted - only people with the link can see it. And the link was given to the members of the Watch (at least for the time being). Meaning it's going to get removed.

Video exclusives generally speaking don't work, too easy to give to other people. Though I guess they're a little bit trickier than screenshots and concept art.

I participated in kickstarter of Double Fine's Adventures and have access to their documentary, and though it seems to be pretty well protected (and also uses vimeo rather than YouTube), I'm pretty sure people who don't have access to the official documentary videos will still be able to find a way to watch them.

I don't know man, she's too "sexualised". I honestly preferred Aveline's clothing since it was more normal and fitting of the actions that she does such as parkouring, fighting and what not. This outfit just seems impractical.

Mary Read and Anne Bonny (seems to be from same artist as above).

I also think I found her modern descendant: LOL

I hope not since these are only rumours. lol I think it stems from the fact they were both tough and rough so they had to be lesbians. lol

In actuality, I think they base it on this sentence: "bursting into the cabin one day with [killing Read] in mind, [Rackam] discovered Mary stretched out on the bed before Anne, not entirely clothed and visibly a woman."
The meaning of this could be anything though and it can easily be taken out of context.
Also, some rumours that one of them (Bonny I think) became attracted to the other while she was dressed as a man. Then Read revealed herself to be a woman, much to Bonny's disappointment.

A captain who's recruiting young boys and doesn't really pay a second glance to them? Maybe. But I find it hard to believe a woman wouldn't recognize another woman before becoming attracted to her. It sounds more like an excuse she would give later when discovered: "Oh, I thought she was a guy, totally!"

It's just speculation so I don't think this would have a place in an AC game. Their sexuality should not be important anyway. It would take away from their characters if they focused on that. (So if they did, it would be for pure titillation purposes. :| )
By the way, it has happened to me and two female friends a few years ago when we saw a woman dressed as a man. We were all "daaamn he's fiine"!! Then "he" came closer and we all went woah! nope! lol (and we're all 100% straight).

Keep in mind, that's a depiction made by an artist who most likely never saw Bonny. Now saying the in-game model is closer to reality, but still.
