A new trailer for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag has been released by Ubisoft, giving us some of the first looks at gameplay. The latest adventure in this franchise features Captain Edward Kenway, who is feared by officials and pirates alike. I thought I was intrigued with the timeframe of the last Assassin’s Creed, but I’m even more so with Black Flag.
It is 1715. Pirates rule the Caribbean and have established a lawless republic. Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag introduces a young, cocky and fearsome captain named Edward Kenway. His skill with a sword and disdain for authority earn him the respect of pirate legends like Blackbeard, but thrust him into the ancient conflict between Assassins and Templars that threatens to destroy everything the pirates have built.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is set to be released on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, XBox 360, Wii U, and PC on October 29th, 2013.
