Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is almost here, meaning we'll be seeing plenty more trailers and footage of the game. Snippets, anyway, if you're willing to settle for that. Case in point? This new trailer, dubbed "Pirate Heist." In case you've been living under a rock for the last year or so, Assassin's Creed IV will be about pirates, and dials back the clock to visit Connor's ancestor.
Edward Kenway is a pirate with lots of pirate friends. And as a proper pirate, his purpose is to steal and get rich. Sure, there's more than that to his life, but let's keep our priorities straight, here. Later on, Kenway winds up allying with Assassins, who tend not to have the luxury of picking and choosing allies. Ezio's best buddies were thieves and prostitutes, after all.
The fact that Edward's progenie winds up being a Templar might mean we'll get a pretty nice twist or two in Assassin's Creed IV's plot. Well, aside from whatever weird Juno-tastic drama we might be seeing.
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will be out October 29 for current-gen consoles and PC, then later for PS4 and Xbox One. Ubisoft would also like to remind everyone that pre-ordering grants access to exclusive missions.
