The newest trailer for Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag has me excited. AC4 is about pirates, and there are few professions in life that I think are cooler than that of the pirate. There is something to be said about the life of a swashbuckler, and the idea of roaming the seven seas in search of the next haul really resonates with me. Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely that I’ll ever get to command a pirate crew, and while this would normally make me pretty upset, the AC4 trailer has given me hope that I’ll at least get to do it virtually
Ubisoft’s lately entry in the Assassin’s Creed franchise puts players in the boots of Edward Kenway as he leads his crew across the seas during the 18th century. The trailer for Black Flag gives some insight into the creed and rules that Kenway and company live by, all while showing some seriously flashy combat.
Kenway seeks to take down the unjust empires in the only way he knows how – blood and steel. Between stylish swordplay and naval combat, Kenway talks of instilling fear to all who oppose him.
While it seems that AC4 may find itself taking a step away from the more tactful assassinations of games past, the added panache associated with the combat of pirates makes that more than forgivable. The hidden blades made famous by previous entries are still shown in the trailer, even if they do play second fiddle to cutlasses and flintlock pistols.
Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is sailing closer to its October release date, and be sure to stay tuned for any more news we can plunder.
