The first cinematic trailer for Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag is out, teasing the next installment in the popular AC saga.
Ubisoft made a teaser for its "world premiere trailer" for the new installment. While the world premiere was supposed to arrive on Monday, March 4, the trailer leaked prematurely amid all the anticipation.
The trailer leaked through GameRadar's YouTube channel and was pulled soon afterwards, but many copies of the video took its place in no time. Ubisoft still has a countdown on its website for the world premiere trailer which it plans to unleash on its own terms.
The protagonist in the new installment, which takes place at sea, is Captain Edward Kenway - an infamous pirate who can "clear the deck of a Spanish galleon like it were nothing." According to the trailer, Kenway can easily assassinate nearly an entire ship and is able to discreetly commit murder in public without anyone noticing except his new mistress.
Many loyal AC fans may find this installment exciting, especially those who are fans of pirate adventures. For others, meanwhile, the game may come as a disappointment, leaving the impression that Ubisoft is simply milking whatever it can out of its Assassin's Creed franchise.
Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag will be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and the PC. The game will also be available with next generation consoles such as PlayStation 4 or Xbox 720 when they eventually hit the market, so gamers can purchase the title for their future gadgets.
Ubisoft's official Assassin's Creed website also revealed a launch date for the new installment for those with some tricks up their sleeve. As DarkZero reported, adding a "v" to the end of the url revealed the image accompanying this article. Ubisoft apparently caught up with this technical wizardry and the image is now gone, v or no v, but the copy is still available.
According to the image, the Ubisoft website notes an Oct. 29 release date for Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, and mentions that the installment is "also coming to next-generation consoles." Sony unveiled its PlayStation 4 last week, while Microsoft is yet to announce its next-generation Xbox.
