Entirely made-up fact: Acrobatics troupes were very popular in pirate-y times. We can see these chaps attempting a very difficult vaulting technique, here.

It’s a day ending in the letter “y”, so obviously there’s another Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag trailer out. The game’s due out on console next week, though, so this one’s the launch trailer! Which means we might not have any more! Oh, who am I kidding? There’ll be another six for the PC version before that comes out at the end of November.

This particular trailer goes a bit Batman with Edward taking lessons on theatricality from Blackbeard, as well as talking to maidens headed to the gallows and stabbing a whole lot of people in the face and neck. Cynicism aside, it actually looks pretty good. Putting cynicism back, though, Assassin’s Creed 3 also looked good and that was a bit wank. I guess we’ll see how this fares next month.

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is due out on PC on 22 November. That’s my birthday, by the way. I expect presents.

Also: is it just me, or does Edward look like a bit like a heavily tanned Axl Rose? Ew.

When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He's also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man's only professional games journalist.
