You just completed the Prologue in Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag. Now it’s time to move on to the first sequence. Don’t worry. We’ll be there every step of the way.
Memory 01: Edward Kenway
After another short cut scene, you must find the assassin as he flees deeper into the island. Head straight and to the left. Cross the bridge and head toward the structures.
Climb up the structures on the left and continue forward to reach the wooden post. Climb up the post and jump across, then climb up the next structure and head around the corner. The assassin appears again. Follow him through the area, then run after him as instructed. He won’t be able to run for long, but you can’t take him out until you catch him!
Once you catch up to the assassin, you finally get to engage in some real combat. This fight is quick and easy. Counter the assassin’s first attack, then take him down with an attack of your own. After another short cut scene, head forward into the restricted zone, climb the tree and dive down into the pool below. Continue forward to initiate the next objective: free the merchant.
Dive down into the foliage below and use stealth tactics to make your way to the musketeer. Think of yourself like Solid Snake from the Metal Gear Solid video game franchise, only with wrist blades. It’s important to take enemies down before you’re spotted. Defeat the rest of the soldiers to initiate another cut scene.
Examine the body on the ground to find a map to a treasure chest. Turn around and move straight ahead until you see a cave to the right. Head to the end of the cave and dig to find treasure. Do you feel like a proper pirate yet? As you exit the cave, grab the loot sitting near the rock wall directly ahead.
Swim out to the ship, climb up and take the wheel once more. Navigate around the sand banks to sail out of the bay. This begins one of the brief simulation portions of the game. Follow your lead’s instructions until you reach your work desk, then back out of your communicator to get back into the game.
