Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag will explore the story of Edward Kenway, an ancestor of Desmond Miles. The game will be set primarly on and around the islands of the Caribbean during the early 18th century, the Golden Age of Piracy. The three major cities of Havana, Nassau, and Kingston will be featured.

About 60% of the game will take place on land, with players able to openly explore various locations such as forts, villages, and islands. Ubisoft has focused on the seamless fusion of land and sea gameplay experiences. Free aiming has been added into combat, as well as duel-wielding weapons. The game will feature naval combat with side missions.

The primary ship, the Jackdaw, can be upgraded with various weapons and abilities. The game will feature more historical figures, such as Calico Jack, Anne Bonny, and Blackbeard.
