Ubisoft made a teaser for its "world premiere trailer" for the next game in the Assassin's Creed series, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. The world premiere was supposed to take place on Monday, but unfortunately for Ubisoft, the trailer was leaked prematurely. The trailer was leaked through GameRadar's YouTube channel, and taken down soon afterwards, but to Ubisoft's horror, many more copies of the videos took its place.
The protagonist of this game is Captain Edward Kenway, an infamous pirate able to "clear the deck of a Spanish galleon like it were nothing". The trailer shows Kenway in action as he's able to assassinate almost an entire ship with ease, and able to commit murder in public without anyone (except his new mistress) batting an eye. To many loyal Assassin's Creed fans, this game will be another welcome addition to the group, while to others, it just seems like Ubisoft is milking the Assassin's Creed franchise for all it's worth.
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will be available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and the PC. It will also be available for the next-gen consoles whenever they come out, so those of you willing to wait, you can purchase the game for your future PlayStation 4 or Xbox 720. You are able to pre-order the game now, and if you do, you'll get a limited edition poster created by cartoonist Todd McFarlane.
It looks like Ubisoft can go ahead and cancel that "World Premiere Trailer" website they had designed and prettied up all for Assassin's Creed IV. Besides getting a sneak peak at the game, and finding out its official release date is October 29th, there isn't much else we know yet about the game. It is rumored that Assassin's Creed IV will be taking place in either Jamaica, Bahamas, Cuba, Mexico, or England.
