You'll have to act fast to take advantage of the sale, which drops the game's price down from $40. It's the Deal of the Day on Best Buy's website, and may only last just as long on Amazon.
Black Flag was released last October on the 360, PS3, and Wii U before coming to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in November. None of those three are included in today's deal on Best Buy or Amazon.
Those having trouble deciding between platforms should remember that the PS3 version (along with the PS4 version) contains exclusive content that will not be coming to other platforms.
The sequel to Black Flag, Assassin's Creed Unity, was recently announced. It's coming to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC later this year and may include a four-player co-op mode. Additionally, a new, separate Assassin's Creed is rumored to be in the works for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
