Do you like pirates? If the answer is yes, chances are you’ll like Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (AC4), which promises a Captain Blood (1935)-style adventure on the high seas. If you don’t like pirates, you’ll likely be disappointed. And if you like the AC saga, you’ll be disappointed even further: In this two-minute trailer, which has been leaked before its official release on Monday, there’s very little here that resembles the series we know and love.
Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag (AC4) is the upcoming addition to the popular video game series, which started in 2007. And as we know, the previous one, Assassin’s Creed III (AC3), was better loved by critics than fans. We know very little about AC4, but fans are already grinding the rumor mill based on the cover art…and on AC3. With the help of some commenters from a previous article, I’ve drawn my own conclusions about Ubisoft’s next installment in the saga of the Assassin’s versus the Templars.
