Privateer turned pirate Edward Kenway is hitting the high seas today with the release of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag. Set in the early years of the 18th century, Kenway must battle the Templars throughout the West Indies as he takes ports, commandeers ships, and encounters other famous pirates of the age, such as Blackbeard and Charles Vane. As with its predecessors, combat will once again be a mixture of stealth and brute force, both of the armed and unarmed variety. And when he’s not fighting, Kenway will be exploring the more than 50 navigable locations. Oh, and whaling. He’ll also definitely be doing some whaling.
Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is available for 360, PS3, and Wii U. A PC version will launch on November 19. Next-gen versions are also launching next month, with the PS4 version hitting stores shelves on November 15 and the Xbox One version on November 22. A Season Pass is available for all platforms, except for Wii U, for $19.99, which represents a 20 percent savings off the nine-mission pack Freedom Cry, Kraken Ship Pack, and other various mission, weapon, skin, and collectible packs.
