Assassin’s Creed 4 talks Golden Age of Pirates

by William Schwartz


This month Ubisoft is going to be teaching Assassin’s Creed fans a history lesson on the Golden Age of Pirates. Going hand and hand with a new Tumblr that explores the life and times of some famous pirates.

“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 slated to release in October for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Wii U, and next generation consoles as well.
