Ubisoft announces 4 collector's editions for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Ubisoft has announced all the different collector’s edition packs for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. The collector’s editions will be available on all platforms, including the next-gen PlayStation 4 and the PC.

The Black Chest Edition is the biggest of the lot and is on limited availability on Ubisoft’s Uplay store. It includes a 55 cm diorama of Captain Edward on the Jackdaw’s bow, an exclusive steelbook, an artbook, the official soundtrack, two lithographs in their protective envelopes, two canvas prints, additional unlockable in-game content, and a collector’s box. You also get a parchment world map and the original Black Flag.

And I call this move

Edward, not giving a damn


The Buccaneer Edition has some of the physical goodies from the Black Chest Edition, including the artbook, the lithographs, a collector’s box, additional in-game unlockable content and the official soundtrack. It also has a figurine of Edward Kenway on the Jackdaw’s Crow’s Nest.

The Skull Edition has a jumbo steel case, the artbook, the official soundtrack, the lithographs, and unlockable in-game content. The Special Edition only has the unlockable in-game content and doesn’t have any of the physical goodies that you get in the other editions.

A major pre-order bonus for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is access to The Watch. The Watch offers content that goes deeper into the Assassin’s Creed’s confusing universe and gives exclusive access to additional information, bonus content, rewards, and the opportunity to take part in a quest designed specifically for VIP members. The Watch also acts as a social hub for players to share videos and screenshots, and take part in online discussions. Access to The Watch will be available through an activation code that will be provided through pre-orders.

Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag tells the story of Edward Kenway, a young British man with a thirst for danger and adventure who falls from privateering for the Royal Navy into piracy as the war between the major Empires comes to an end. Edward is a fierce pirate and seasoned fighter, and soon finds himself embroiled in the ancient war between Assassins and Templars.


Set at the dawn of the 18th Century, Black Flag features some of the most infamous pirates in history, such as Blackbeard and Charles Vane, and takes players on a journey throughout the West Indies during a turbulent and violent period that was later known as the Golden Age of Pirates.
