If you didn’t get a chance to head to San Diego Comic Con, you missed out on a 13 minute walkthru of a level called “Horizon” in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Well, today we’ve got the full video, as well as the announcement of the new graphic novel Assassin’s Creed: Brahman (we’ve got a few panels from the novel here), as well as a sneak peek at the statue being offered in the Limited Edition version of the game. Who provided commentary for the walkthrough? None other than lead actor portraying Edward Kenway, Matt Ryan. Here’s a little bit about Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and the panel at Comic Con:
The panel features Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag lead writer Darby McDevitt, comic book writer Brenden Fletcher, Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag lead actor Matt Ryan and legendary comic book artist Todd McFarlane and is moderated by The Escapist’s Andrea Rene.
Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag tells the story of Edward Kenway, who falls from privateering for the Royal Navy into piracy as the war between the major Empires comes to an end. Edward is a fierce pirate and seasoned fighter who soon finds himself embroiled in the ancient war between Assassins and Templars. Set at the dawn of the 18th Century, the game features some of the most infamous pirates in history, such as Blackbeard and Charles Vane, and takes players on a journey throughout the West Indies during a turbulent and violent period of time later to become known as the Golden Age of Pirates.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag won our E3 2013 awards for Best Action / Adventure Game of E3 and picked up a nomination for Best Graphics of E3 2013.
