Assassin’s Creed IV Trailer Leaked
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is a game currently in development at Ubisoft, and its existence was leaked ahead of the company’s own schedule when individuals privy to the information broke the embargo a few weeks ago.
Ubisoft announced late last week that it would reveal the game in full on Monday, but once again, the game has become ‘victim’ (much to the joy of fans, I’m sure) of yet another embargo-break, this time revealing what Ubisoft had planned to release all along—the debut trailer for Assassin’s Creed IV.
The trailer begins with a pirate—presumably Blackbeard—sharing his ‘honest opinion’ of what he thinks about a gentleman of fortune who sails the West Indies. In doing so, Blackbeard introduces the game’s protagonist—Captain Edward Kenway. He’s described as a fearsome dog who’s capable of clearing the deck of a Spanish galleon all by himself, with prowess in combat that Blackbeard himself has never before seen.
As he’s described by the narrator, the trailer shows off the protagonist as he does battle aboard ships, cutting men down in his wake.
The trailer ends with Kenway’s assassination of another man, and reveals the game’s release date as October 29, 2013 for the PC, Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U.
More information about the game is expected to be released on March 4 when Ubisoft makes a formal announcement.
