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.
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.
