Ubisoft has released a new trailer for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, the fourth numbered entry into the highly popular franchise, direct from it’s showing at E3.
Having been in development for upwards of two years, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag follows the story of Edward Kenway, a pirate who finds himself caught up in the ancient war between the Assassins and Templars. Set at the dawn of the 18th century, the game promises to tell the “true story” of the Golden Age of Pirates.
If the name Kenway sounds familiar, that’s probably because Edward’s the grandfather of Assassin’s Creed III’s Connor Kenway and father of Haytham Kenway. This fierce pirate of British descent will stand alongside the likes of Charles Vane and Blackbeard, as they sail the open seas of the Caribbean during one of the most “turbulent and violent” time periods.
It was announced earlier in the year that those who purchase Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag on either PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 will receive 60 minutes of additional gameplay content, that revolves around Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation’s female protagonist Aveline.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is scheduled for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and Pc come October 29 in North America and November 1 in Europe. It will launch alongside the forthcoming release of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this holiday season.
