‘Assassin’s Creed IV’: Learn About The Game’s Cranky Protagonist & Pirate History In Two New Trailers

05.15.13 3 years ago • 7 Comments

Ahoy! I’ve got a couple new Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag trailers for you scurvy dogs! One’s a brief history of the “Golden Age of Piracy” and the other focuses in on the game’s protagonist, Edward Kenway, who seems a lot more, well, bitter than Connor from Assassin’s Creed III. Hopefully he’s also a tad more interesting!

Hit the jump for the trailers…

Man, I dunno — I’m kind of Assassin’s Creeded out, but on the other hand — pirates! I like pirates! Maybe if I just ignore any references to the Assassins or Templars and just pretend this is a totally original new pirate game it’ll go down easier. Any hypnotists out there that could make that happen for me?
