Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag tells the story of Edward Kenway, a young British man with a thirst for danger and adventure, who falls from privateering for the Royal Navy into piracy as the war between the major Empires comes to an end. Edward is a fierce pirate and seasoned fighter who soon finds himself embroiled in the ancient war between Assassins and Templars. Set at the dawn of the 18th Century, the game features some of the most infamous pirates in history, such as Blackbeard and Charles Vane, and takes players on a journey throughout the West Indies during a turbulent and violent period of time later to become known as the Golden Age of Pirates.

Gameplay in Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is based upon the franchise’s proven tenets. Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag features a vast open world with more than 50 navigable locations. Combat combines the weaponry of the Assassin’s Order with armaments of the era, and rewards both daring and stealth. And the series’ acclaimed multiplayer experience is more varied and ruthless than ever in Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag.

    How does the modern day story-arch work in Assassin’s Creed 4?

    • Daniel Bennifer (May 11, 2013 12:50 am)

      The historical setting puts players into the role of Edward Kenway, the grandfather of Assassin’s Creed III’s Connor Kenway. It’s the first Assassin’s Creed that actually hasn’t treaded further into the modern day era, instead of taking place before Assassin’s Creed 3.

      The current-day story arch doesn’t follow Desmond Miles this time around. Instead, the player assumes the role of an Abstergo agent who’s experiencing the life of Edward Kenway.

      That follows on with Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, which revolved around an Abstergo training program.
