EB Games Already Offering Preorders Of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Assassin's Creed III didn't come out all that long ago and yet, we already have an October 29 release date for the next instalment, subtitled Black Flag. This, it seems, is all the information EB Games needs to throw up preorder pages.

Pages exist for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, with the console games retailing for $88 and the PC $78. Tipster Andrew, a former EB employee, mentioned that it was "fishy" that EB would make preorders available "without confirmation", though perhaps the trailer was ammunition enough.

The release date is the same for all three, "TBC 2013", though the PS3 page includes the following informative tidbit:

PS3 Exclusive Edition: Includes 60 minutes of exclusive gameplay

I hear the other two SKUs are getting 60 minutes of cinematic "Arrs!" instead.

    I'm not sure why this is news, considering they do this for every game as soon as it is announced.

      But they would also take money to preorder Borderlands 6 and Halo 15....

    EB games are toxic to the gaming industry and should be avoided.

      How so ?

      At this point the gaming industry itself it pretty much toxic.

    The only game i've played in the series so far is Brotherhood, can anyone suggest which ones to play to catch up on the story, etc? Not keen to play through 10 games.

      The main games are the only important ones in terms of story. But you can take or leave III, watch it on YouTube, less boring, maybe. But you started mid story so I don't know why you're worried anyway.

        I've enjoyed Brotherhood from what I've played, which isn't much so i'm keen to get more familiar with the series before picking this one up. Thanks for the advice.

      I've played them all, but you don't need to. You can look up one of those 'Game in 5 minutes' videos on youtube. I suggest playing 2, revelations, and looking up the videos for 1 and 3 if you can't be bothered playing them:)

    ...it's also because you get an 'exclusive Todd McFarlane poster" with their pre-orders.
    but i'll wait until the Collector's Edition with Edward on the bow of his ship is up for pre-order...then get it from the UK as it'll be half the price.

      Pirate Flag is a given with the CE

    Why do people assume that EB Games only find out about new titles when the rest of the public do? They do have a dedicated product buying team who I am sure have to sign NDA's. Surely in today's society of games = money this makes sense? Plus the poster & title had been kicking around reddit before it was officially annouced.

    I think EB still has not fulfilled people who preordered the Nexus 7 with them :)
    The cake is a lie.
