Did you feel that? Those were your timbers being shivered. Now watch this world premiere trailer for Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, exclusively from Machinima, and prepare to be boarded by the dueling forces of excitement and anticipation. While you (and Jonah Ray) may be disappointed that this sequel doesn’t put you in the shoes of legendary punk assassin Greg Ginn, the trailer makes the game look like the most fun you can have this side of getting keelhauled. Considering how unreasonably addictive the nautical missions in Assassin’s Creed III were, we think that you’ll find plenty to like (especially if the final Templar is a Kraken. Pleaaaaaase be a Kraken!).
Here’s some food for thought: the main character/badass assassin captain’s name is Edward Kenway, which makes him the father of Templar jerk Haytham Kenway and grandfather to series protagonist Connor Kenway. So, let the rumor mill begin grinding this trailer into fine, medical-grade rumor cocaine… now!
