What If The Pirates Of Assassin’s Creed IV Were Tailors Instead?By: Zach Walton - November 11, 2013
Last week, Sony UK teased something Street Fighter related for the PS4 as part of its #4ThePlayers campaign. While we still don’t know what’s up with that, Sony has released another video with intentions that are far easier to discern.
The latest #4ThePlayers promo features E. Kenway & Sons Bespoke Tailors – a clothing store based heavily on Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. As we already know about Black Flag coming to the PS4, this promo doesn’t have the same air of mystery surrounding it. It’s just a fun reimagining of the characters and themes from the latest Assassin’s Creed title.
But wait, what if Sony is teasing something more? Perhaps an Assassin’s Creed clothing line? Maybe some exclusive DLC where Edward Kenway gives up pirating and becomes an honorable tailor? Those of us who love video game fashion would do anything for the latter, but Ubisoft probably has no plans to appeal to a super niche market in one of its biggest franchises.
Speaking of DLC though, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will feature exclusive content that focuses on Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation protagonist Aveline. Later on down the road, the game will also receive a DLC spin-off called Freedom Cry! that focuses on Kenway’s quartermaster – Adewale. Freedom Cry! will be available on all platforms.[Image: sonyplaystation/YouTube]
