Bleed Empires Dry in Assassin’s Creed IV

While we received a video the other day primarily focused on the back story of the upcoming sequel, we still know little about the main character and his motives. Ubisoft has released a new trailer today showcasing just that, along with a strong amount of gameplay footage to go with it. Yup. It looks like an Assassin’s Creed game just with more pirate ships.

You play as Edward Kenway, an ancestor of Desmond Miles and father of everyone’s favorite Haytham Kenway, but he just happens to be a rum drinking pirate captain. Taking place well before to the events of ACIII, Black Flag will let you take command of your very own pirate ship and give you the ability to dual wield guns and swords. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be out by the end of October.
