The age of pirates was a time of big, boisterous and crazy personalities. Black Beard, probably the most notorious of the group, is still a name that most will recognize to this day.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, while not directly about the lives of these pirates, will rub against some of the most famous names of the pirate-controlled Caribbean. The new trailer from Ubisoft that you see at the head of this posts introduces some of the names, both real and fictional, that we're set to encounter.

The Assassin's Creed franchise has always been great when it comes to meeting historically massive personalities. It started with Da Vinci back in Assassin's Creed II, and it continued with Washington and Franklin in Assassin's Creed III.

Hopefully the iconic roster of characters in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag lives up to the series' history.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will launch for the PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U platforms on October 30th. It will also be a launch title for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
