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.

We have hands-on time with Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag this week at PAX, so stay tuned for our in-depth coverage. Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag releases on October 29th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U, with PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 releases shortly thereafter.
