Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag has been dubbed as a nonliterary vehicle for cultural tourism, according to a review of the video game which appeared in The New York Times. Ubisoft's fourth update of the exciting game would allow the game's fanatics to explore the 18th century Caribbean world of pirate Edward Kenway.  From Havana and Kingston in Jamaica to the Bahamas to Tulum in Mexico, virtual players would be able to explore plantations and churches. Previous versions of the Assassin's Creed transported gamers to large cities and sprawling countrysides of the Holy Land and to the sites of the Italian Renaissance and the American Revolution. Over the years, the franchise has allowed players to mingle with those living in the era.

The Assassin's Creed franchise is the brainchild of Ubisoft. Last year, Assassin's Creed III sold 12 million copies. According to, the third update of the game contributed to the company's revenues of USD 1.615 billion. Together with six million copies sold of Far Cry 3, Ubisoft's revenues increased 18.3% compared to that of the previous year.
