Starting with some excellent mood-setting music, the new Pirate Heist trailer for Assassin’s Creed IV is pretty awesome. The governor has declared war on pirates and demands the death of each, so you’re going to rob him. And probably kill him, this is Assassin’s Creed after all.
Joined by the notorious pirate Blackbeard, the designer of the Jolly Roger flag Calico Jack, the infamously cruel Charles Vane, and the invisible Anne Bonny, Edward Kenway takes to the seas in search of the one big pirate heist that will have him set for life.
All of this sounds really cool, and the trailer has definitely got me excited again, but I really hope Assassin’s Creed IV’s story will be good. AC3 was cool, but disappointing with its focus on history rather than the actual main character and the assassins. Check out the new trailer below and let us know what you think!
You still have time to pre-order the game and receive in-game missions, and unlockable ships and weapons. Nowadays I tend to expect these kind of pre-order bonuses to become available as extra DLC which isn’t a bad thing, but you never know.
The game will be available on all consoles on October 29th, and PC November 19th, then it will join the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One libraries on each console’s launch day.
