Trailer shows why it's a pirate's life for Assassin's Creed IV

Edward Kenway, Caribbean assassin, pirate captain, baby-Haytham-haver, once sailed for the Royal Navy. But when a treaty between the European powers resulted in--as our modern parlance would say--widespread redundancies, he didn't go back home to England.

Kenway tells us why it was a pirate's life for him in this new trailer for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

Darting around beautiful islands, exploring diverse cities, and commanding ships through improved naval battles sound like just the sort of assassin memories we'd like to jump into. The shark attacks we could take or leave.
