Briefly: Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is just over a month away from release, and I couldn’t be more excited. Sure, I miss the sprawling cityscapes and parkour of the first few games in the series, but I’m really looking forward to taking to the high seas, and further learning the history of Desmond’s ancestors.
A very talented filmmaker by the name of Joe Miale has just released a fantastic Assassin’s Creed IV fan film called Assassin’s Creed: Checkmate. The video (of course) takes place in the 1700’s Caribbean as Edward Kenway stumbles upon a robbery in progress and has only a split second to make his killer move.
The short should do a great job at further exciting fans for the game, and also gives us a great look at Miale’s production chops. Miale will be back on Machinima in just a few weeks to debut another short based on the Half-Life series.
Take a look at Assassin’s Creed: Checkmate below, and let us know what you think! Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag hits stores on October 29th!
