Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag trailer details pirates, dates game for October release (update)

The world premiere trailer for Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, leaked online earlier today, features a first look at the game's protagonist, captain Edward Kenway, and dates the game's release as Oct. 29.

The trailer was posted by GamesRadar and includes several cinematic shots of ship battles, pirates and trademark assassination moves by Kenway. It's narrated by Blackbeard the pirate, who gives his "honest opinion" about the newest assassin.

"You ask me, can this new captain promise you a life of prizes, plunder and adventure?" he says. "Aye. For amongst all the gentleman of fortune sailing these west indies, he ranks among the most clever."

"This man is a fearsome dog, a fiend of trouble and turmoil," Blackbeard continues. "... Fighting like a devil, dressed as a man."

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag will be available on current and next-gen consoles. Earlier this week, Ubisoft released box art for the game. We have attended various events for Assassin's Creed 4 in New York, London and San Francisco and will publish those stories March 4 at 12 p.m. ET.

Update: The video has since been marked as private on GamesRadar's YouTube page.

Update 2: The world premiere trailer for Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag is back online.
