Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag - Summary


Into this world sails a young, cocky, and fearsome captain named Edward Kenway.

With compelling characters, an expansive world, and an infinite amount of pirate activities to engage in, Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is the largest and most immersive Assassin’s game in the franchise.

The Golden Age of pirates

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag begins in 1715, when pirates established a lawless republic in the Caribbean and ruled the land and seas. These outlaws paralyzed navies, halted international trade, and plundered vast fortunes. They threatened the power structures that ruled Europe, inspired the imaginations of millions, and left a legacy that still endures.

The caribbean at the dawn of the 18th century

The fullest Assassin’s Creed world ever created. Stand among legendary pirates such as Blackbeard, Calico Jack and Benjamin Hornigold, as you establish a lawless republic in the Bahamas and relive the truly explosive events that defined the Golden Age of Pirates. From Kingston to Nassau, explore 50 unique locations where you can live the life of a pirate. Captain and customize your own ship, search for lost treasure, hunt rare animals and loot underwater shipwrecks.

Edward Kenway

Into this world sails a young, cocky, and fearsome captain named Edward Kenway. His skill with a sword and disdain for authority earn him the respect of pirate legends like Blackbeard, but thrust him.

Get to know Captain Edward Kenway and his host of fearsome pirate allies, like Charles Vane, Anne Bonny, Calico Jack and Blackbeard. Take on pirate hunter Woodes Rogers whose ruthlessness is surpassed only by his infamy as the bane of outlaw sailors.

I'm almost willing to agree with Mr Pug. Perhaps not as good as AC2, but very close.

I'm happy it's the best selling Assassin's Creed with over 13 million copies including sales on PC.

@asqarkabab - Actually, its arguably the best. Maybe you meant "best" but tapped the wrong keys.

i bought this on the EU store and i can see the ratings as a result. Over 107k people in the EU gave it a thumbs up so I reckon in the EU alone downloads must be around 250-300k. Prob because everyone got the killzone bundle and a lot then bought this on the psn store.

great game and just recently i got the platinum. the online is actually really good if people do the wolfpack properly. i'm now half way through the awelade dlc and i'm loving it too. hope they do an AC 2

Just finished this on PS4 and wow...what a great game. By far my favorite Assassin's Creed game. Also, it's just plain gorgeous on the PS4. Truly, it looks amazing for a game that is made for last gen and this gen systems. To think this is just the beginning of the gen and things already look this awesome. It runs smooth as butter too. Started Infamous now, and that looks even more amazing, and hey it's more Infamous, which is a great thing.
