So, Ubisoft officially confirmed Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag today. If you’re a weirdo like me, then you weren’t spending the majority of your time speculating on the gameplay or setting, but instead were wondering what level of involvement the American hardcore band Black Flag had in the process.
The answer is none. I’m pretty sure the main protagonist is not going to be voiced by former Black Flag lead singer Henry Rollins. I’m almost positive artist Raymond Pettibon will not be doing any of the promotional art. I’m practically certain that the announcement trailer will not be set to the song Rise Above and that there will not be a side-quest where you have to get Robo a six pack. These are things I’m 99.9 per cent sure about.
But c’mon guys, wouldn’t it would be pretty cool?
Look: I know I have a history of doing hardcore and gaming crossover Photoshops before. I realise this is territory we’ve gone over before in a much broader context, but let’s break out the Photoshop one more time and make some crossover art that the early-80’s Hardcore scene would be proud of.
