Get ready for a history lesson, as Ubisoft’s newest Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag trailer introduces you to the Golden Age of Piracy.

In the video (which you can view below), check out the true history behind what led to an era of pirates that would be forever immortalized in pop culture, along with such infamous captains like Benjamin Horrigold, Calico Jack, Charles Vane, and Blackbeard, who will be introduced into the world of Assassin’s Creed.

But will they be friends or foes?

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is set to release to the PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Wii U, PS4, and the next-gen Xbox in October later this year.

Born and raised in video games and "geek culture," Masoud has been bred off of fantasy worlds his entire life and doesn't see anything wrong with that. He loves RPGs (especially TRPGs), sandbox games, the sci-fi genre, dieselpunk, art deco, and anything that allows him to create. Having graduated from John Jay College with a degree in English and a minor in Creative Writing, Masoud hopes to one day pen the same novels, comics, movies, and video games he enjoys escaping into when the real world gets too boring.
