VIDEO: Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag trailer shows off Blackbeard and both kinds of booty

Gaming, Tech Digest news

Ubisoft haven’t done very well keeping a lid on the next Assassin’s Creed game, have they? We’ve already known for a few weeks that it is set to be called Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, and that it’s about pirates, and we’ve even seen the box art. All this before today’s official 5pm launch announcement!

And now we have a leaked trailer. And it’s looking arrrrrrrlright!

Revealing that the game is set to come to next gen-consoles including the PS4 as well as the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U and PC, Black Flag will centre around a new protagonist, Captain Edward Kenway, a man that even Blackbeard seems to fear in the trailer.

He seems a return to Ezio’s brash approach. We se him get his hands on some booty (and some treasure too) for instance.

It’s a great looking trailer, suggesting the game will build upon Assassin’s Creed 3’s naval battles, and feature beautiful underwater environments. What’s not certain is whether any of the trailer is in-game footage or not. It’s not impossible, given the fact that it’s headed to next-gen consoles.

Keep an eye out for more details from 5pm.
