Here's a new trailer
from Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag where Ubisoft offers some cinematics
and couple of glimpses of gameplay to promote how they will tell the "true
stories" of famous historic pirates in "the real golden age of piracy," which
followed the golden age of highway robbery, and proceeded the golden age of
stock swindles, glorious times villainized by the lamestream media. Here's a bit
on the truthiness this all exposes:
Included with the trailer is an
infographic riddled with facts about the Golden Age of Pirates in the 18th
century. We’ve referenced multiple sources to provide a visual introduction to
the period. You’ll learn about the events that made this Age of Piracy possible,
get a taste of the living conditions that might make an honest sailor turn
pirate, and uncover some of the key places, people and events that you will
experience in Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag.
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.
