Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Trailer Defies the Odds

Horrible histories

Ubisoft has released roughly 10,000 Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag trailers to date, so we suppose that another one won’t hurt. This snippet plots protagonist Edward Kenway’s path from free-loving rogue to seafaring savage. In addition to the video, the publisher’s also brought the date of the game forward in the UK, confirming that it will now set sail on 29th October on the PS3. Are you planning on walking the plank? Let us know in the comments section below.

To be fair, it's another very good trailer. I don't know how Ubisoft still has new stuff to show, though.

I always wonder why they keep tying themselves down to this assassin conspiracy and mechanics. AC1-Revelations are fine, but AC3 should have been a new Ubisoft series with everything but the hidden-wrist-blades and "Assassin" uniforms; a boy growing up to defend his homeland from invaders. Same for 4 — it should be about a pirate and his story within his historically-plausible circumstances, not a pirate who's also secretly an assassin who also has time to do other stuff. And I say this in respect to it looking so good. It's like their kind of wasting some really cool stand-alone ideas by connecting them.

Well, I'm going with this as my replacement for Watch_Dogs. Unlike WD this actually seems to get better with each trailer while WD went from awesome at its reveal, to good, to putrid in its most recent showings. Both Robert and Sammy say this is on track to be superior to III, which greatly disappointed me, and since those guys haven't steered me wrong yet I'm going to trust them. I did really enjoy AC 1, 2, Brotherhood and Revelations as well so it's possible that III not living up to my expectations was just a fluke. Happens to the best, even a couple Mario and Zelda games have disappointed me in the past.
