I am gobsmacked! The cutscenes look absolutely solid and the acting in them is top-notch. Plus point for the English accents and really epic deep voices.


Btw guys, there's a scene where Edward is talking with julien de Casse, the grandmaster and 2 other pirates. Guess that shows the conflict of Edward.

Nice vid.

I have no idea what to make of this game, I wasn't really hyped at all at the beginning of the year and then a couple screenshots/trailers kinda got me going but nothing really. Then the last maybe 3 or 4 official videos have had me hyped up so much. I think this could be very good game.

I think that moment is referenced in the Fort demo we got, "I know your face pirate, but your name was borrowed the last time we spoke"
I guess that's how Edward got to know his future targets.

Edward? No, i dont think he is an assassin, but we will have to play the game to found out.

Can't wait to see his mingling with Templar's and then how he ultimately completes the transition over to the Assassin's. I think Edward and his story are both the most promising premises for any AC game.

This video was thoroughly enjoyable, arguably Black Flag's best piece of promotional material to date. I think it's safe to say the acting will be executed brilliantly, now it remains to be seen whether the story will live up to its standard.

I know a few other people already mentioned this stuff, but I thought I'd bring up some things from the Vane cutscenes. :>

- The guy walking beside him in his first clip is most likely Henry Jennings. They teamed up to go after the goods of the sunken 1715 Treasure Fleet. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1715_Treasure_Fleet)
- Jennings ends his life of piracy and accepts the King of England's pardon for pirates in 1718, which is likely shown during the scene where Vane threatens, "I'll gut you! I'll open you up, I'll rip out your guts, traitor!" How pleasant.
- Finally, we see a clip of Vane and Kenway looking scruffy on a deserted island. This is probably the events leading up to Vane's death, when his ship is wrecked in a storm and he's washed up on an uninhabited island (along with Edward, it seems).

It's pretty fun piecing together the story with the history available to us. C:

Farlander1991

- The guy walking beside him in his first clip is most likely Henry Jennings.

That's actually Calico Jack. Can't find the original concept art, but here's a low-res version of it.
http://me.ign.com/pictures/articles/14212/97573.png

(the full one had "Calico Jack" name prescribed to the right)

And here's a quick excerpt from Wikipedia about the betrayal:

On November 24, 1718 Rackham called a vote in which the men branded Vane a coward and removed him from the captaincy, making Calico Jack the next captain.[5] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calico_Jack#cite_note-piracycomplete-5) Rackham gave Vane, and fifteen supporters, the other sloop in the fleet, along with a decent supply of ammunition and goods.[7] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calico_Jack#cite_note-woodard-7)

Farlander1991
08-30-2013, 11:10 PM
Yeah, it's really cool how they're showing the theatrical side of Blackbeard (who used the fear to make people give all their loot to him without even firing a shot), instead of making the theatrical version THE real Blackbeard (who we can already see from the pieces of video that we have is quite a different character in comparison).

08-30-2013, 11:27 PM
WOW!! Now this is what you call cutscenes in a bloody AC game, They seem to have emotion and backstory in them along with superb acting, Not just a cutscene telling you to do this and that.. Im liking it!! Blackbeard looks terrifying and the other pirates im curious to meet in the game.

That costume has the Assassin crest on it. I'm guessing that you get access to costumes pretty early on or something. Otherwise it doesn't really make sense for Edward to be wearing that in a story mission where he's meeting with the Templars.

Unless he's planning to betray the Assassins at that point.

Or maybe they're Templars that infiltrated the Assassins.
