Ubisoft has released the first gameplay footage from Black Flag, the fourth entry in the Assassin’s Creed series. The video shows the latest assassin, Captain Edward Kenway, pirating about the West Indies in search of plunder and Templars.
An exclusive GameStop edition was also announced for those who pre-order either in-store or online. The Black Island Pack bonus will include the Black Island quest, the Black Ship, Captain Morgan’s silver flintlock pistols, and Captain Morgan-themed costumes, titles, and pictures.
Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is scheduled to launch on October 29 for 360, PS3, and Wii U. It will be available at a later date for PC, PS4, and “other next generation consoles.”
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.
