Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag will be available for Windows three weeks after it debuts on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.


The PC version of Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag is said to be ported from the Xbox One version, according to a tweet sent out last week by Ubisoft Montreal’s Gabriel Graziani. The game will feature Edward Kenway from Assassin’s Creed 3, and will be set in the Caribbean islands, where he will face off with pirates.

Ubisoft showcased a new trailer titled Pirate Heist that highlights some of the in-game action. Another trailer released last month revealed the technological enhancements that will be seen on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC versions of the game. These include a new sea engine, a dynamic weather engine that feature volumetric fog, along with a new global illumination lighting technology as well as dynamic 3D foliage.
