The lights are on
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag's Edward Kenway is unlike the previous heroes of Ubisoft's annual series. He's not the sternly insolent Altair, nor is he the reserved but charming Ezio. He's brash and explosive, and these are traits necessary to survive in a world of pirates.
In the video below, you'll get a more in-depth look at some of the famous figures that appear in the story. Join Blackbeard, Charles Vane, and many others on October 29, 2013, when Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag arrives for Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will be available at the launch of those consoles.

As I have been a huge fan of the AC series as a whole and all the game's I wasn't really looking forward to this since AC3 really irritated me pretty bad with the ending but as a gamer you have to move on and get over it. So that's what I'm going to do and the more and more I read about this game the more I get excited for it. Arghhhhhhhh!
I'm sick and tired of Black Flag videos! *flips table*. I want to play it now ARGHRHGR!!!!!
I'm struggling big-time with my decision to play this or Shadow Fall first! I've said this before, I really dislike the character look of Edward, he looks plastic to me compared to Ezio or Connor. That said, I'm stoked to get my hands on this and my PS4!
<---didn't watch the video...no spoilers please...maybe it's me, but lately, there have been a lot of videos showing characters and whatnot about a game...what happened to just being excited about a game...remember super mario bros 3? the only news that came out was that you could fly...bam! wanted to play it...
SOOOOOOO EXCITED for this this, but if they miss an opportunity to put an easter egg in for captain JACK SPARROW i will probably just die a sad death :( haha. i really am hopeing for that however
I am still on the fence about this game. I just don't know really. Yet more I see this and the more I like the showing of the other Pirates that sailed. The more I like it all. May end up Pre-ordering it anyway.
This game looks really fun. AC III was a bit more serious in my opinion, but this game looks like it has a bit more of a "fun" factor to it. I wouldn't mind pre-ordering it, but I'd really like to get this for the PS4, and I don't know if I'll have the money for the PS4 at launch though, so I may have to skip out on the exclusive in-game missions...
Got a feeling Wood Rogers will be my favourite character in this game.
Wow that got me super excited now.
