What’s left of the Assassin’s Creed 4 media that was supposed to arrive today, but leaked onto the internet over the weekend, has been revealed. A handful of new screenshots, a new CG trailer introducing Edward Kenway, and a handful of previews from a dedicated Black Flag event have hit the web.
Ubisoft’s done with the AC4 secrecy at this point, and they’ve detailed the new assassin in full: “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag tells the story of 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. Edward is a fierce pirate and seasoned fighter who soon finds himself embroiled in the ancient war between Assassins and Templars. Set at the dawn of the 18th Century, the game features some of the most infamous pirates in history, such as Blackbeard and Charles Vane, and takes players on a journey throughout the West Indies during a turbulent and violent period of time later to become known as the Golden Age of Pirates.”
Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is due out in October on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. The game is also listed for “Other Next Gen Consoles” and the PlayStation 4.
