Ubisoft has posted a brief video which takes a look at comic book artist Todd McFarlane and the way he goes about designing the poster art for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag. McFarlane explains that his inspiration for the poster came from an image of Michael Jordan, who stood with both arms stretched out to his sides, that he saw as a child. McFarlane incorporates this into the pirate-themed poster as he shows Edward Kenway, the assassin we will be playing as, with both arms stretched in a display of his various weapons (hidden blade, cutlass and pistols) while defending against pirates.
Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag has an expected release date of October 29, 2013 for Windows, Wii U, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and ‘next-gen consoles’ (most likely referring to the next Xbox). The Black Flag poster will be available only through pre-orders of the game via GameStop.
