VICE And Ubisoft Team Up On Assassin’s Creed IV-Inspired Historical Documentary

Posted on December 24, 2013 at 8:02 am

VICE is famous for its brutal news documentaries that occur in the various most threatening places on the earth. In other words, they’re no stranger to the worst humanity has to provide. A number of the worst humans ever to exist were pirates, and that’s what led Ubisoft to partner with the publication to supply a documentary that explores the genuine history behind a few of the history’s most infamous pirates.

In the 1st episode, VICE looks into the lifetime of Charles Vane – a central character in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. While the sport will undoubtedly take some liberties together with his life, it’ll remain faithful to the indisputable fact that Vane was, for loss of a greater word, an asshole. He would typically cheat his men out in their rightful reward when arriving from a successful raid. Even worse, he would torture and kill the sailors and merchants aboard captured vessels even if they surrendered with no fight.

To learn more, you’re going to need to look at the primary episode of “Rum, Guns & Gallows:”

Episode 2, which delves into the history of Blackbeard, isn’t out yet, but you will see it first on VICE. Meanwhile, you may look at the trailer for the episode below:

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag shall be released on October 29 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U. The computer version can be released on November 19, the PS4 version may be released on November 15 and the Xbox One version would be released on November 22.
