The new trailer for "Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag" gives us a little bit of the pirate captain's origin story as he rejects his British masters for a life on the high seas, stealing stuff and shooting at the Navy.
So, I guess the trailer, titled "Under the Black Flag," is promoting some anti-imperialism message? That's... cool, I guess. But Ubisoft games handle politics about as clumsily as a first-year undergrad (they have opinions but no real thesis), so hopefully, "AC4" won't just be some strident polemic and focus instead of being a badass pirate game.
