Everyone knew that ‘Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’ would be coming to E3 2013 this year but many, many people were still eager to get a glimpse of the upcoming title.
According to Ubisoft’s E3 presentation this year, the year is 1715 and Pirates rule the Caribbean. These men have established their own “lawless Republic where corruption, greediness and cruelty are commonplace”. Players will assume the role of the “brash young captain named Edward Kenway”. Ubisoft states that Kenway fights for glory and he has earned the respect of legends like Blackbeard the pirate. That being said he has also been drawn into the ancient war between Assassins and Templars, “a war that may destroy everything the pirates have built”. “Welcome to the Golden Age of Piracy” says Ubisoft.
