Ubisoft has unveiled Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag with a trailer that introduces the series’ new protagonist – Captain Edward Kenway.
Yes, that’s the same surname as Assassin’s Creed 3 hero Connor Kenway, so while the new game may be set a few years on from the last game, we could see Connor feature in AC4 in some form.
From the CG (we assume) trailer, Edward Kenway appears to be a pirate captain, with a black flag bearing the logo of the assassin brotherhood and the pirate symbol on his ship.
The blonde-haired protagonist is seen swimming underwater, swinging across ships, and engaging in battles with rival pirates using a sword, dual-wielded pistols, and of course, the hidden blade.
Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is scheduled for release on 31st October for Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U, and the game will also arrive on PC, PS4 and other unnamed next-gen consoles, like the next Xbox.
Like Assassin’s Creed 3, the new game is also set to feature an hour of additional bonus content exclusively on PS3.
