Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag embarks for plunder on 29 October

Yo ho ho, shipmates. Get used to every games journalist opening articles with infuriating pirate talk for the next few months, because Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag information is tumbling out like captured soldiers off the plank of a ship.

A leaked trailer (recreated below, though it may be removed at some point) has confirmed that the protagonist for this jaunt will be Captain Edward Kenway, a chap so pirate-tastic that even Blackbeard talks about him in awed tones. Judging by a smattering of leaked images (first shown on allgamesbeta, I believe) it appears you’ll be taking the good Captain to islands thick with jungle, diving beneath the waves, sailing around and causing havoc in various ports.

Acting like a pirate, basically. The stated release date is 29 October, and the game is, of course, coming to the PC.
