Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag - best pirate game ever? Video
Trailer for latest instalment is set in the Caribbean and promises epic pirate action on the high seas
A TRAILER for the latest instalment of the blockbuster Assassin's Creed computer game franchise has been released, confirming rumours that the game will be an epic pirate-based game set in the Caribbean in the year 1715.
The clip to promote Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is narrated by the most famous buccaneer of them all, Blackbeard. In it he sings the praises of lead character Edward Kenway, a "gentleman of fortune" and the father of AC3 hero Connor.
News of the release was greeted with excitement by gaming fans.
Much of the new game will be set at sea, and previous adventures have won praise for their naval content.
"Needless to say – playing as Edward Kenway is going to be a hell of a blast – and we can’t wait to see how he evolves throughout his swashbuckling adventures on the high seas," said website Game Sector.
Others predicted that the new game would be an improvement on the previous chapter of the game. "With a more colourful story, fresher character, and the free-form gameplay fans desire, this could see it deliver a far better experience than its predecessor," said CVG.com.
Indeed, it could be a game changer according to PCGamesN. "With Assassin's Creed 4, Ubisoft might not only be on course to create the best Assassin’s Creed game yet - this could be the greatest pirate game ever made," it said.
