This trailer offers a remarkable look into the next installment of the Assassin’s Creed Series. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag takes place just 50 years before the events with Connor in Assassin’s Creed III. Our new assassin, Captain Edward Kenway, is the grandpa of Connor and an all around badass. By the looks of this trailer the game is re-setting the bar for the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
The world of pirates is the perfect time period for an Assassin’s Creed game. The year is 1715 when Edward Kenway leads a group of men aboard his own ship. Kenway is a young British man who lives off of danger. This fearsome pirate is a highly trained individual who finds himself in the middle of the ruthless war between the Assassin’s and the Templars. The game will follow some of the most well know pirates in history like Blackbeard and Charles Vane while remaining historically accurate instead of focusing on pirate clichés.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be available later this year; October 29th in North America and November 1st in Europe. It will be released for the Xbox 360, PS3,PC, Wii U, PS4 and “other next-gen consoles”.
