Since launch the Assassin's Creed series has sold over 57 million copies worldwide, with the latest Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag releasing next month. In Black Flag we captain a ship and her crew on a binge of piracy throughout the Caribbean. It's come a long way since hunting a million eagle feathers across the Holy Lands.
