Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag is a story of defiance in its latest trailer

Ubisoft has released the latest trailer for the upcoming Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, giving a glimpse at the riches to rags story of the title's newest playable protagonist Edward Kenway.

The developer has kept relatively mum about the narrative to come, focusing mostly on open world gameplay and ship combat, but its new footage hints at what can be expected from Kenway. Unlike Connor of Assassin's Creed 3, Kenway appears to be a wholly defiant sort with anarchic sensibilities, who has turned his back on his well-to-do past.

Take a look at our recent interview with scriptwriter Darby McDevitt on the debauchery that will fuel the game's narrative.
