As promised a few days ago when Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag was announced, Ubisoft has now released the word premiere trailer. We get to hear about Captain Edward Kenway, our new pirate Assassin protagonist, through none other than the infamous Blackbeard himself.
“If it’s fortune and adventure you seek, then Captain Edward Kenway is your man,” Blackbeard tells his listeners. He adds the following caution, “Only, don’t meddle in his private affairs, for there’s more mystery to that man than even I dare ask.” This new assassin must be a total badass if even Black Beard is weary of him.
Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag has been in development for two years according to Ubisoft and is being spearheaded by a veteran Assassin’s Creed team at the Ubisoft Montreal studio.
“With the new hero and new setting we are creating the boldest and most unique Assassin’s Creed game yet, while still respecting the pillars of the franchise that have made it such a fan favorite,” said Yves Guillemot, chief executive officer at Ubisoft. “Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is based on a true, harsh and exciting part of a legendary era and will thrill longtime fans and newcomers alike.”
Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag will follow Edward Kenway, a young British man with a thirst for danger and adventure, who falls from privateering for the Royal Navy into piracy as the war between the major Empires comes to an end. Captain Kenway is a fierce pirate and seasoned fighter who soon finds himself embroiled in the ancient war between Assassins and Templars. The game will feature some of the most infamous pirates in history, such as Blackbeard and Charles Vane.
Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag hits shelves on October 29, 2013 for Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC. Check out the trailer below:
