Edward Kenway

After yesterdays ‘leaked‘ multiplayer characters fiasco I’ve come back with an offering of redemption. A trailer, everyone loves trailers! The trailer which went live on YouTube yesterday features Edward Kenway and other pirates as well as a look at locations for in the game. As trailers go it’s pretty cool, with it looking very similar to a Cinematic trailer that was released for Assassin’s Creed 3 last year.

The year is 1715. In the Caribbean, desperate sailors with ideals of true freedom assemble to establish the Republic of Pirates. But far from idyllic, their life is brutal, filled with betrayal and debauchery. Here at last are their true stories.

The trailer uses ink to depict scenes of a pirates life, showing you how the most famous of pirates came to be inclusing Black Beard and some of the antics they would of gotten up to, Mutiny ad debauchery to name just a couple. The video also gives just a small insight into some of the port towns, but it’s enough still to whet you appetite. As you can expect the Naval aspect of Assassin’s Creed 3 will make a ferocious return in Black Flag. With harsher sea faring battles to be expected in the newest game you will be using all kinds of tricks to disperse of you enemy.

As you can see towards the end of the video there is some gameplay footage, seeing Edward do his thing running through fields and across rooftops as well as taking out an enemy or two whilst all that happens. In my opinion, so far Black Flag  is shaping out to be a great game. Although we haven’t seen masses of content, in the coming months I think we should expect to see more.

Below are a few screenshots and images that were released alongside the video.

Let me know what you think of the video above in the comments below. And any other thoughts you might have on the game. And as always make sure to check back here when more Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag news comes available.
