With Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag officially two weeks away from release for various consoles, Ubisoft has set sail with an all new trailer for the game, one that digs a little more into the back story of Edward Kenway, the main pirate/assassin you'll be controlling throughout the game.

The trailer opens with Edward barely escaping a vicious pirate attack and then growing his stature as a fearsome pirate, making new allies and eventually becoming a true threat on the high seas. You can watch it in action below.

We'll have coverage of Black Flag over the next few weeks, including single player and multiplayer strategies and much, much more.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag arrives on October 29th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii U; November 15th for PlayStation 4; and November 22nd for Xbox One.
