The Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag leaks keep on coming, as after a poster and a screenshot appeared earlier this week and after a map yesterday, the game's cover art has just surfaced on the web, showing off the game's official title, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, and its protagonist, a pirate assassin.

Ubisoft is getting ready to reveal the next installment in its Assassin's Creed series, which is set to star a new protagonist and a new historical setting.

However, thanks to quite a few leaks and reports, we already know that the title will be called Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag and that it's going to star Edward Kenway, the grandfather of Assassin's Creed 3 protagonist Connor, who apparently was a famous pirate in the Caribbean.

Now, a user of the Ubisoft forums has just posted the actual cover art of the upcoming game, showing off Edward in an Assassin uniform but with quite a lot of pirate gear, ranging from the curved sword to the flintlock pistols.

No other details were given but the image seems legitimate, so check it out in the gallery below.
