You mean there's a story mixed in with all this piracy?
Whether it was too much grog that caused it will be a problem for future archeologists to puzzle out, but Ubisoft has let its official Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag launch trailer out of the gate somewhat prior to the game's release date. Still, for those of you who want to know why Edward's in the business, it's all for love of a good woman. Or maybe a bad one, who knows, but the hangman's waiting, so the question's moot.
Evidently you're building a brave new world, but that shouldn't stop you taking the Jackdaw out for a loot-and-pillage junket every once in a while. It's a big new world, even if it isn't brave yet; 50 distinct locations await your thieving, greedy crew. But perhaps you've given up on gold, as the nice lady with the new neckerchief suggests. Maybe you'd like to do something more with your life. Kill dudes, for instance. Every brave new world needs a pile of corpses at its foundation.
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is due November 2013 for PS4, Xbox One and PC; October 29th for PS3, Wii U (in North America) and Xbox 360.
