More good news for fans of Assassin's Creed game series! This time we will tell you about  AC4: Black Flag protagonist - Edward Kenway. The Ubisoft's blog has got a lot of interesting information about him, so if you want to know more information about this character, then you should definitely read this article.


Edward Kenway is one of the most self-contradictory characters of the whole assassin’s saga, especially in comparison with Assassin's Creed 3 protagonist - Connor. Each of his predecessors became the assassin as if it was destined to them, while Edward’s way to piracy is much longer and more complicated.


From the beginning Assassin's Creed 4 protagonist, opposed to his predecessors, is a self-centered, cynical and jaded person. After having left his wife, Edward begins to work on privateering with the sole purpose of getting rich and be glorified. But he learns quickly that the privateering won’t help him in it. So he comes to piracy and the Brotherhood, realizing that only they have the necessary tools to achieve his goals. If each member of Kenway family (Ezio, Heytem, ​​Connor) has become an assasin, following the philosophy of the Assassins and doing the right things, Assassin's Creed 4 protagonist acts often as he wants. But we’ll see later that the events through which he passes in AC4: Black Flag make him think about who he is and what he wants in reality.

This struggle between what Edward Kenway wants and what is required by Brotherhood who has its own philosophy, will form the basis of the game and AC4: Black Flag hero.


And for those who can not wait till the moment when AC4: Black Flag will be released, we would like to recall that this action-adventure will be finished October 29, 2013 for Wii U, PS3 and Xbox 360. And a little later it will be released for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
