Assassin's Creed 4 trailer celebrates the pirates' life, new limited edition revealed

Ubisoft has announced a new limited edition of Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag alongside a new trailer that focuses on what it means to be a pirate.

The pirates' life is one that trades safety and order for freedom and drunken debauchery; it is a life that seeks to defy authority and carve out one's legend "in steel." Protagonist Edward Kenway is one of these men, commander on board the pirate ship Jackdaw.

Last week, Ubisoft released a video showing how the pirate life translates into free-roaming naval gameplay.

Ubisoft also announced today that the Limited Edition of Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag was available for pre-order in North America. The Limited Edition is available for all platforms on which the game is launching except the Wii U (PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Windows PC) and will retail for $129.99. It includes:

  • A copy of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag
  • 18" Assassin statue featuring Captain Edward Kenway
  • An embroidered 28" x 48" iconic pirate flag with the Assassin's Creed crest
  • 80-page art book
  • SteelBook game case
  • Full game soundtrack

Ubisoft says that the Limited Edition will be available on PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 29, with Windows and next-gen dates to be revealed at a later time.
