The year is 1715. Pirates rule the Caribbean and have established their own lawless Republic where corruption, greediness and cruelty are commonplace.
Among these outlaws is a brash young captain named Edward Kenway. His fight for glory has earned him the respect of legends like Blackbeard, but also drawn him into the ancient war between Assassins and Templars, a war that may destroy everything the pirates have built.

i would recommend this game and edition to any fans of the series, a must buy!
The game has improved graphically from its predecessor and the plot was a lot more gripping. I also thoroughly enjoyed the modern day plot and it was one part of the game I was most excited about. The map is astounding and it is hard to believe they could create a world this big but nothing is lacking when you explore it. Sometimes it's just nice to look at the beautiful places Ubisoft have created in this game. The cities are beautiful if not a little smaller than those from the last game but I did find New York and Boston rather boring and dull. Havana, Kingston and Nasau are wonderful, vibrant places with lots to do and explore. The addition of music whilst in the cities is a lot better as well as it adds to the atmosphere of the games which was lacking in AC3.I found the ship parts of the game refreshing and exciting. They have been considerably upgraded from AC3 and the battles are one of the most exhilarating parts of the game.
Of course the Skull Edition is beautiful. The steel case is one I shall treasure forever as I have doe. With the box from the special edition of Revelations. The soundtrack is fantastic and the art book is something to sit and enjoy.
All in all I think Ubisoft have created one of the best games of 2013 and I cannot wait to see where they will take us next.
Mechanically the controls for the character are the same as AC 3 but the environments are much more fun.
The naval combat has been overhauled drastically it's a lot more tactical and difficult, gone are the times you could just wade the Aquilla into the middle of ten hostiles and blow them apart in moments, to start you would be lucky in the Jackdaw to get the better of one frigate without upgrading and even gunboats pose a challenge.
The storms are much more impressive and sailing is fun.
There are complaints that there are still eavesdropping missions, I don't mind these and they aren't all the time. (That being said I'm only on memory sequence 4)
The only thing that annoys me is when you are in the "Real" game world you see in 1st person, but I suspect that will relate to a spoiler I haven't found later.
Still the Game is excellent.
The Metal Box is beautiful and the physical content is pretty cool, the soundtrack is a huge bonus (even though Windows Media Player's Library doesn't recognise the disc, as of 04/11/13 at about 8pm).
The in game additional content is all very good too and provides more room to just be distracted, the swords of Toledo to start are very handy against some of the middle-ranked opponents.
Overall well worth getting if you love Assassins Creed.
For £10 extra I can recommend this, for anymore I cannot as the in game content is a joke and the soundtrack is forgettable with the exception of 2 sea shanties (For some reason the ones your crew sing on the ship in-game aren't a part of the soundtrack).
The game itself is a vast improvement over the god-awful Assassins Creed III, Edward is a far better character and the pirate setting adds enjoyable naval combat and some interesting characters such as Blackbeard.
The ending of this game is the worst in any Assassin's Creed game to date (Yup, even worse than III). The ending was so sudden I thought I had a whole chapter of the game left when it just suddenly stopped, so if you are a die hard fan of the franchise such as me prepare to let Ubisoft stick their middle finger up at you.
Excluding the ending Assassin's Creed IV is a game worth playing and a jolly good time.
