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.
