The trailer for the new Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag has surfaced and it showcases one Edward Kenway as the protagonist assassin. After scrapping Desmond and the end of the world, Ubisoft assured us that the series would take a different direction, away from the animus.
Personally, I think this is a great choice. Edward Kenway sounds and looks like the total badass, the perfect cross between Assassin and Pirate captain, no doubt this game is going to be action packed with throat slitting and ship commandeering.
The trailer ends on the comforting word that we’ll have our hands on the new AC by October 29th and it will also be available on “next gen consoles”, emphasis on the plurality.
Also, All Games Beta has a set of leaked screenshots that showcase Kenway in various settings doing various things. Check out these sleek images at the previous link!
