Ubisoft has released a new trailer showcasing different pirates in the upcoming, open-world action-adventure video game, Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag.
The three odd minute long trailer, brings to the spotlight some of the prominent characters in the game. The narration of the trailer is by Matt Ryan who is also the voice actor of the game's protagonist, Edward Kenway.
Edward Kenway - Unlike any of the previous protagonists in Assassin's Creed, Kenway's character is the most unruly and loves to drink. Kenway was born and raised in Wales and came to the Caribbean in search of recruiters for his treasure mission.
Adewale - The quartermaster and close companion of Kenway in his ship, the Jackdaw, had escaped from the shackles of slavery to become a free man that he is today. He does not understand the mind games Kenway plays but is his equal when it comes to courage and bravery.
Edward Teach a.k.a. Blackbeard - Teach is well-known among the pirates as Blackbeard, and is one of the co-creators of Nassau, the haven for all pirates. Blackbeard is Kenway's teacher and lives by his own rules, where he combines fear and theatrics to intimidate his opposition.
Benjamin Hornigold - He is another pirate who co-created the pirate republic of Nassau and is the complete opposite of Blackbeard. He was a "gentlemanly pirate" who lived by a code of conduct where he does not attack a ship that hoists a British flag.
Stede Bonnet - Bonnet left his life of luxury and pleasure, trading it with the satisfaction of finding a new place.
Woodes Rogers - He is the villain-like privateer, with the only intention of eliminating the pirate republic.
Charles Wayne - He is an infamous pirate who was both cruel and psychotic with no rules governing him or his actions but only selfish motives.
All the men above were free men, who were masters of their own lives. This is the setting for Kenway's rise to fame.
The game will be launched on 29 October for Wii U, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A PC version of the game will be released at a later date. The game will also be a launch day game for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
