It seems like just yesterday we were merrily running along rooftops and cutting throats in Assassin’s Creed 3, and that’s because it was. It’s only been five months since Ubisoft dropped AC3 on the world, and they’re already gearing up for AC4: Black Flag. Sure, this announcement trailer is purely cinematic and the game is undoubtedly still in the early stages of development, but it’s still exciting to see where Ubisoft is going with the series.
Remember all those awesome naval battles in AC3? You can expect a lot more of them in AC4. In Black Flag you play as Edward Kenway – a pirate who’s been trained by assassins to whoop ass and get booty …in more ways than one. If the trailer and screenshots are any indication of what he’ll be like in the game, Edward will be armed to the teeth; sporting four pistols, two cutlasses, and of course, the obligatory hidden blade(s).
AC4 is set to be released on October 29th, so but be sure to check back for more trailers and info as that date draws nearer.
