I'm standing on the deck of a double-masted sailing ship, spinning the wheel and ordering the crew to unfurl our full sails so we can race across the waves in search of loot, plunder, and booty. Nearby, two ships are engaged in a duel of cannon fire, and a bell rings overhead to warn me that another ship has turned to pursue us. I need to drop the ship's diving bell over the side of the ship near the wrecked hull of an unfortunate vessel so I can collect some of the rich stuff on the bottom of the ocean, but before I can do that, it'll be smoke and swordplay. Except I'm actually in a hotel suite in Seattle, while a member of Ubisoft's "Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag" team takes me through the paces, and tries to make sure that I don't run my ship aground on a reef or careen into the wide of a man-of-war.

At San Diego Comic Con, Ubisoft announced the latest in their line of "Assassin's Creed" comics, Assassin’s Creed: Brahman.

The graphic novel is set to debut later this fall and will introduce a brand new member of the Assassin Order; Arbaaz Mir. His backdrop is 19th century India, another first for the franchise, though his target once again is those pesky British colonialists.

At this point, odds are you know that "Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag" exists. After a variety of leaks last week, Ubisoft had to release the box art and confirm its existence. I, however, had a preview event a few days before the leaks started. What leaked was just the tip of the iceberg however as "Assassin’s Creed IV" is a large undertaking for the company.

While a new "Assassin’s Creed" game every year is now expected, it was a bit of surprise to find out we’d be getting the fourth numbered game as opposed to a spin-off ala "Brotherhood" and "Revelations" this year.

A lot of people absolutely loved the nautical segments of "Assassin's Creed 3," running down ships in the Caribbean, dominating the high seas with their slow-turning boats.

You couldn't necessarily count me among them, but that's the well Ubisoft is drawing from in the next installment of the series, "Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag."
