Edward’s Crew Flies Off To Space In This Assassin’s Creed IV Glitch
Requiescat in pace or whatever, we guess.
Called “The Ascension of the Jackdaw” by the user who uploaded it, Whacken Blight, this surreal Assassin’s Creed IV glitch depicts the crew of the Jackdaw hovering, suspended and terrified, over a giant ship-shaped hole in the ocean’s depths. They then one by one zoom off into the sky as the ship emerges from the hole. It’s pretty magical.
Our favorite thing about this video? The ecclesiastical Latin choir that Whacken Blight cuts into the gameplay here. It really makes you feel like you’re watching a bunch of scared pirates get raptured from a demonic ship of horrors. Of course Kenway gets left behind, though. Did you see him just walk up the ladder like it was nothing? Clearly he’s the demon captain of the demon ship, and he’s going to cause some ruckus here on Earth before Jesus comes back to smite everybody. That’s absolutely what’s happening here.
