I am soooo excited for Black Flag to come out in October. I mean come ON! There’s only one thing better than assassins and pirates….and thats….
I was not paid or offered any form of compensation for this post*
The pre-order version comes with the “Black Island Pack”…
Captain Morgan’s favorite ship sank off the coast with a full load of legendary sailing equipment. Explore the Black Island and retrieve these items that the pirates have been desperately been searching for.
Here’s what the pack includes:
- the dark and dangerous treasure-hunting quest: Black Island
- the deadly Black Ship
- legendary silver flintlock pistols used by Captain Morgan
- valuable multiplayer items including Captain Morgan’s costume, picture, and title
The game takes place in 1715 in the Caribbean, where pirates have established a lawless rule. You play as fearsome and brash(not to mention good-looking)
Edward Kenway Captain Edward Kenway, whose exploits earn the respect of pirate legends like Blackbeard. But these same exploits draw him into an ancient war that could demolish everything the pirates have worked so hard to build.
Edward is described as a “charismatic yet brutal pirate” who has been trained by the Assassins. He can effortlessly switch between new weaponry (including not two but four flintlock pistols and dual cutlass swords). You’ll get to explore 50 unique locations where you can live the life of a true pirate. From looting underwater shipwrecks (the Assassins have come far from the days of Altair, where you would probably drown in a puddle if there were any in the game) to hunting rare animals. Searching for treasure in lost ruins and, of course, assassinating Templar scum.
I am so excited for this game, I’ve been an AC player since the second game came out (don’t worry, I played the first one and *then* the second one lol). I’m really excited for the treasure hunting and exploring of lost ruins. I guess for me it’s a mix of three of my favorite things:
- Assassin’s Creed
- Tomb Raider (exploring ruins and treasure hunting)
- Pirates of the Caribbean
The gameplay looks incredible and graphics are amazing! I am very much looking forward to being a bad a** pirate of the Caribbean and sailing the seas while going after Templars and treasure 🙂
