Poor Ubisoft, their big Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag reveal was spoiled by a leak of the game’s debut trailer (which you can watch above in case you missed it) over the weekend.
The trailer confirms everything we thought we knew about the game. It’ll be released on October 29 for the PS3, Wii U, and Xbox 360 with PC, PS4 and other “next-generation console” versions coming later. We also know that the pirate rogue at the center of the story is Edward Kenway, Connor’s grandfather.
“With the new hero and new setting we are creating the boldest and most unique Assassin’s Creed game yet, while still respecting the pillars of the franchise that have made it such a fan favorite,” said Yves Guillemot, Chief Executive Officer at Ubisoft. “Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is based on a true, harsh and exciting part of a legendary era and will thrill longtime fans and newcomers alike.”
But if you’re looking for something new, check out the game’s second trailer, “Edward Kenway, A Pirate Trained By Assassins,” after the break.
