ASSASSIN'S CREED IV: BLACK FLAG - Under the Black Flag Trailer
Ubisoft has released a new trailer for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. The trailer gives us a little history lesson on the true story of the golden age of pirates. The trailer launches Under the Black Flag, a "historical crash course" that will have a new chapter every week this month. I enjoy history. I know a little bit about the history of pirates, but it's not something that I've completely delved into yet. I'm sure I'll eventually get around to it.

To take you deeper into the true History behind Assassin's Creed IV, we've also launched "Under the Black Flag," a Historical crash course on the Golden Age of Pirates hosted entirely on Tumblr. Check back each week this month for a new chapter in the True Story of the Golden Age of Pirates.
In chapter one, learn about the brutal life of a sailor in the 18th century, the "Pirate King" Henry Avery whose exploits grew to legend and inspired a generation, and the Spanish War of Succession which sowed the seeds of piracy in the Caribbean.
This game looks like it will be a ton of fun to play. It will be released on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC on October 29th, 2013.
The player is hired by Abstergo Entertainment — a subsidiary of Abstergo Industries — to investigate a pivotal movement in Desmond's ancestry; the Assassin Edward Kenway. A notorious pirate and privateer operating during the Golden Age of Piracy, Kenway's story is set in the Caribbean, and mixes open-ended ship-based exploration with combat and land-based adventures on a number of Caribbean islands. Real-life pirates that you will encounter include: Edward "Blackbeard" Teach, Benjamin Hornigold, Anne Bonny, Jack Rackham and Charles Vane.
