Assassins Creed 4

Ubisoft officially released the first trailer for Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag Monday.

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is set to release Oct. 29 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Windows PC and Wii U. It is also expected to launch on PlayStation 4 and all next-generation consoles.

The game has been the worst kept secret since Ubisoft hinted at it in a third-quarter earnings call last month. The company officially announced Assassin’s Creed 4 last week. The debut trailer, originally scheduled to release today, leaked online Saturday. Since, then an additional trailer has been leaked by Nintendo Everything and screenshots from the game have hit the internet.

The debut trailer for Assassin Creed 4 contains a great deal of information about the sequel to last year’s Assassin’s Creed 3. Edward Kenway will be the star of the game featuring pirates in the Caribbean islands. Kenway is presumably related to Haytham Kenway, who appeared in Assassin’s Creed 3 as main character Connor’s father.

Edward Kenway is a young British man in pirate-like Assassin garb but also seems to enjoy the typical spoils of a pirate. Once a member of the Royal Navy, he has fallen to piracy as the war of major empires ends. Aside from the popular Assassin tools of a hidden arm blade and sword, Kenway especially enjoys wielding era-specific pistols.

Famous pirate Blackbeard makes an appearance in the trailer and will almost certainly be crossing paths with Kenway in the game. Charles Vane and other well-known pirates will also be featured in the game as Kenway takes a journey through the West Indies.

It seems as if the game will build on the naval battles and missions found in Assassin’s Creed 3. Based on the trailer, the game might also feature underwater swimming elements.

Ubisoft also announced players who pre-order the game through GameStop will receive a limited edition poster with artwork created by Todd McFarlane.

The debut trailer for Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag can be viewed below. The second trailer leaked by Nintendo Everything features a star Edward Kenway but does not contain the cinematic value of the game’s debut trailer.
