Very little poses a threat to assassin-pirate Captain Edward Kenway of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Ships crumble under his cannonfire, rival sailors fall like stalks of sugar cane before his whirling blades and flintlock, and port-dwelling nobles are easy pickings for his hidden blades. But sharks, as you'll see in this first gameplay trailer, are a problem.
While you're all amped up for buccaneering shenanigans, Ubisoft has also revealed exclusive limited edition "Black Island" content. This pack includes a new island to explore in search of a wrecked ship and its valuable equipment, new weapons, and multiplayer unlocks.
North American gamers can snag the content by pre-ordering at GameStop. UK assassins will find the content in the Uplay-exclusive Black Chest Edition and the GAME-exclusive Buccaneer Edition.
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will release October 29 in the U.S. and November 1 in the U.K. on PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U. It will also appear on PlayStation 4.
