2w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani posted up a new video trailer today spotlighting Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag and the golden age of piracy below.
To quote: Every Assassin's Creed game is based in an actual historical setting, with a sense of place and time that provides the backdrop to amazing adventure fraught with peril and political intrigue.
The setting for Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag is no different! Contrary to popular belief, pirates didn't suddenly decide to become a scourge of the seas out of the clear blue sky.
The emergence of piracy was the result of decades of violent and brutal privateering that was not only sanctioned, but also bankrolled by warring naval powers of a size and scope never known before. All of this will have already happened in AC4, so we thought it would be a good idea to bring you up to speed.
The wild, nearly lawless and verdant islands of the West Indies and the towering ships that ruled them present some of the most unique and exciting stories we'd ever encountered, so we couldn't wait to show them to you in AC4.

9w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani shared an Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag new PS3 gameplay trailer video today!
Below are the details, to quote: We are extremely excited to present the very first Gameplay Trailer for Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag! After years of hard work, we are finally able to unveil a rich world full of adventure, excitement, mystery and a hero unlike any Assassin you have ever met.
Plunge into the exotic world of The West Indies in 1715. During the Golden Age of Pirates, the seas were as lucrative as they were lethal... only the most cunning and ruthless of individuals could survive long enough to achieve wealth and infamy beyond their wildest dreams.
This is the world you will explore as Captain Edward Kenway. A Pirate trained by Assassins, he is fearsome, lethal, brutal, and a loyal captain to his crew. Edward lives in secrecy and battles alongside historical pirate legends such as Blackbeard and Calico Jack. But what truly motivates this dashing rogue and how is he connected to this suddenly sprawling pirate empire?
Join us under the Black Flag of Assassin's Creed IV and find out for yourself!

You can already see that he's a perfect fit for the life of plunder, adventure...
