Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Developer Walkthrough (E3 2013)
Ubisoft has put out official commentary of the E3 trailer for Assasssin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, which you can see below.
As the trailer goes, it shows a moment in the story where we see what it was like being a pirate. Lawless men and women living a free life, but at a cost.
The trailer and the gameplay it showcases is based on an actual event in which Blackbeard was pursued by British forces. The game’s developers boast that the assassinations take place during the corresponding historical time and place.
Set prior to the events of Assassin’s Creed 3, Black Flag revolves around a pirate named Edward Kenway, father of Haytham and grandfather of Connor, the protagonist of the aforementioned game. Unlike the previous games, players take on the role of an Abstergo researcher instead of Desmond.
The game is set for release on October 31 for all major platforms. Next-gen versions are also in the works. The PlayStation 3 version of the game is set to receive a full hour of additional gameplay in which players take on the role of Aveline.
