Revelling in the golden age of piracy, Black Flag takes us to the 1720s and promises lots of opportunities to shiver various timbers and swash some serious buckles.

According to Ubisoft, there are 50 unique locations in the game, which include three large open cities – Havana, Kingston and the Pirate Republic of Nassau –, fishing villages, secret coves, jungles, forts, Mayan ruins, islands and more.

We don't have too long to wait either, as Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is slated for release on October 29th. You can read our full in-depth preview of the game right here.
