It is 1715. Pirates rule the Caribbean and have established a lawless pirate republic. Among these outlaws is a fearsome young captain named Edward Kenway. His exploits earn the respect of pirate legends like Blackbeard, but draw him into an ancient war that may destroy everything the pirates have built.

I LOVE Assassin's Creed. And i LOVE collecting. But there is no way im going to buy this run down version if the guys in the UK have the Black Chest edition. Why can't you get this Gamestop? I want to spend my money on something worth it. Just get that version and skip all the other stuff and you can keep the poster!
I've been with the Assassins Creed series since day one and I have to say that with each sequel fans have been happy in almost every shape or form. I do have to admit however that the ball was dropped a little because of Assassins Creed 3 ( it's not a bad game by any stretch of the imagination) and this game may seem rushed, but the same can be said for brotherhood and revelations, two great games, and I think this one is going to make up for 3 and even more!
I played all of the games. the last one they made was my favorite. Its gone to be exciting. I saw the video and I am so excited!

Turning into a CoD-type game
I used to be a die-hard Assassins Creed fan, but Revelations was a huge letdown. Then AC3 looked promising, but was disappointing. Less than a year and they announce a new game that looks just like the last. Remember those boring Privateer Missions that got old quick, this is what you are buying. I can almost promise you this game is a copy-paste like CoD. If I were you, I would rather preorder BF4 or wait till Fallout 4 is announced.

Just One Question
If Conner Kenway's grandfather was trained by the Assassins ; how did his dad become a Templar? Anyways i'm sure they'll expain if they haven't already . But besides my question i have no doubts that this game is going to be awsome !

love assassins creed this looks good cant wait to play it look up my youtube page im going to start a band need the support its bombinthesea
i have pre ordered this and looking forword to playing it but i was doing some research here and there is bundles for this in other places and am wondering if they will come to us during these coming months before october 29th if nots with whats been offered so far am getting sounds good to me
I agree with those that say this game was rushed and the fact that the story just took a step back in time to a place where you play as haythem kenways father edward kenway is very confusing but the improvements ubisoft has shown with each game in the assassins creed lineage are incredible with every ac game they have come out has let the player get more in touch with the character. and now they have come up with a greaat idea they took assassins creed and launched it into The golden age of piracy i just hope edward kenway doesnt turn into another captain jack sparrow from pirates of the caribbean. but the amazing colors and textures ubisoft has put into this game are going to be breathtaking and now the fact that you can now explore underwater is great and this was a great time period to put this game in truly brilliant ubisoft and now we dont have to deal with those annoying parts in the gamae where it would tell us area not available during current memory no now you must upgrade your ship and take on those ships that block the open ocean so you can explore even farther into the caaribbean.the gamer also gets to go on constant missions with their personlized ship instead of completing all the ship missions and then your stuck with a giant floating device like in ac3. and theyve also thrown in some very famous characters like black beard and others. and all new ways to counter your opponents attacks because ik that we all hate doing the same counter move over and over and over now we get to utilize our environment when in conflict. Ubisoft has also thrown in alot of exotic animals that you may hunt when your board or when you want to build or upgrade components on your character along with the sea life like sharks whales squid fish this game is truly amazing Ubisoft put everything into this game and i cant wait to get it -THA V1RUS

I have been a fan since the beginning.
Location: Chandler, AZ
As good as AC 3 was, which was breathtakingly good, an important part of the story was missing: the connection and emotional attachment to the protagonist. I loved the first three games as we got so connected, so immersed in the lives of Altair and Ezio where as with the time we had in AC 3 we were unable to get as deep with Connor. I hope that Black Flag addresses this. I also miss the amount of extra things to do that Brotherhood had aside from the main story arc. It would seem, according to official description, that there will be more to do in Black Flag than in AC3 and I am very excited for that.
The combat promises to be the best yet in the franchise and the dual wielding of Edward's cutlasses should prove to provide very intriguing combat experiences.
All in all, I am very glad that I have pre-ordered this game.
Now I'm Not Saying This Is A Sure Fact Or Anything..But I Was Playing ACIII Last Night And Was Looking Through The Data Entries And Was Looking At Haytham's Entry And It Said Something About His Father Named Edward?? This May Or May Not Be Coincidental... But I Believe Edward Is Haytham's Father.

i can not wait for this game i have gotten every game at midnight releases and this one will be no different. Now i believe Ubisoft need to take a few steps back and give us a game about the Asian Girl from the movie Embers on a console not a handheld like the did with Liberation not taking away from it is was a great game but an asian theme might help the series feel a little more world roundin
First off, I am a huge AC fan...been one since the beginning. I have to say that this game doesn't interest me at all. The theme is pretty cool, not going to lie, but half the gameplay is on a ship, REALLY NOW??? An assassin doesn't sit on a ship blowing up other ones. I just feel Ubisoft lost their way. They just haven't been the same since Ezio...
Looks awesome i just got assassins creed 3 but i guess ill finish that and get this new one but it looks really cool

Review 19 for Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag
Sorry to everyone that is an AC fan (I used to be one). but this game is going to be rushed badly. I don't understand why companies do this, Honestly I have a feeling that this is just going to be dlc that ubi wanted to put in the game, but then decided "hey, why not package it and sell it for 60 bucks'? Just my opinion.
The story in AC3 wasn't that good. They gameplay was pretty fun, though. Connor wasn't as interesting as Ezio. I hope Ubisoft listened to all fan complaints and fixed all the problems AC3 had. I'm still wondering how they're going to continue the modern day storyline now the Desmond is dead. This game still looks interesting, though, and I'm looking forward to adding it to my Assassin's Creed collection.
