Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag trailer makes the case for its boozy new protagonist

Forget the business with sleeve-knives-as-heritage and apples and whatnot - I’m more interested in the apparently recessive Kenway fun gene. Altair didn’t show any signs of it, while Ezio appeared to be entirely composed of it. In Haytham, it manifested as an ability to blend nobility with roguish charm - but seemed to bypass his son, Ratonhnhaké:ton. In Desmond, the gene must have mutated into a proclivity to irritate everyone around him.

But Edward? Piratey, drinky Edward. He’s got the fun gene, alright.

That’s a quite bewildering amount of physical tat available at the end there, isn’t it?

The other news this morning is that the game’s release date has been brought forward on the consoles by a couple of days, from November 1 to October 29. Whether that’ll mean a thing for Assassin’s Creed IV on PC, expected a few weeks later, remains to be seen.

In the meantime there’s always shanties, I suppose. And AC3's boat bits. What did you make of them?

Thanks, VG247.

Turns out, Dental Hygiene was very important to pirates.

Trying not to get caught in the hype train again. Every AC looks fantastic prerelease and then we get hit with delays, bad performance, repetitive dull quests... I'm keeping an eye on this because I want it to be good... but fear it wont.

Never played an Assassin's Creed and never will. It just doesn't click with me.

I absolutely not see the appeal for this game.
