Ubisoft has put together a nine-minute video to set the stage for its seafaring Assassin's Creed adventure. Black Flag is out in one week, and the footage below will get you ready to live the pirate's life.

The video introduces protagonist Edward Kenway, his pirate friends, and sailing on the high seas. You'll be able to take on enemy ships and capture them, explore the islands of the Caribbean Sea, and of course, sneak up on foes to put them down quickly and quietly.

Assassin's Creed IV is out on October 29 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will be available at the release of those consoles. You can check out two different previews from Gamescom here and here.
