Learn about your pirate rivals in this Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag trailer

After working with Assassin's Creed 3's stick-in-the-mud protagonist, fans will be happy to know that Edward Kenway is as suave as Ezio and as brash as Altair.

You can learn more about the buccaneering hero of Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag and the no-good scallywags he associates with in the trailer below, narrated by Edward's voice actor.

We take that "no good" part back, Edward's quartermaster and confidant Adewale seems like a decent human being. The rest of the sea dogs and noble fops, on the other hand, are a mixed bunch.

Black Flag will hit PS3, Wii U, and Xbox 360 on Oct. 29 in North America and Nov. 1 in Europe, and will launch alongside PS4 and Xbox One.
