Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Trailer

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.

why is freedom (especially in games) always related to violence treachery, murder and debauchery?

It be a better world if people started thinking of freedom is terms of cooperation, friendship, peace, harmony and goodwill.


Because people generally don't get granted freedom through "cooperation, friendship, peace, harmony and goodwill"?

"Hey man, how it going? Look - we're thinkin over here - we just wanna do our own thing. Is that cool? Like not being associated with you at all? Is that ok? Oh, you're sending troops over, I see...perhaps peace and harmony will grant us our freedom! Everyone! Down on your knees! Assume the peace and harmony position!!!!"

edit: And with your various religious rants in the past, you of all people should be familiar with the crusades. Peace and harmony worked out well there!
