The year is 1715. Pirates rule the Caribbean and have established their own lawless Republic where corruption, greediness, and cruelty are commonplace. These outlaws paralyze navies, halt international trade, plunder vast fortunes, and threaten the power structures that rule Europe.
Among them is a brash young captain named Edward Kenway. His fight for glory has earned him the respect of his fellows but has also drawn him into the ancient war between Assassins and Templars—a war that threatens to destroy everything the pirates have built.
