Raven’s Cry is a dark action-adventure game that will attempt to challenge the image of pirates in popular culture. Game events are seamlessly interwoven with historical ones to create an authentic, thrilling narrative. Raven’s Cry immerses players in a lavishly detailed world with historically accurate architecture and in-game events that will feature three major cities; Port Royal, Havana and a lost Aztec City in the jungles of the Spanish Main.
This little bit of information from the official website should give you a hint at the theme and story of the game:
“The dark, ominous objects were barely discernible against the angry Caribbean sea, but Christopher’s eyes were young and keen and spotted them with ease. As the ships drew closer the threat became clear. “Pirates!” Christopher’s father cried, but these were no common rovers. The impending doom creeping toward the misty isle of Inez Sound was none other than the Devil’s Tines, a notoriously bloodthirsty fleet of murderers, convicts and deserters. The pirates raised the lonely village, leaving only one alive- the boy Christopher Raven, who had been maimed and left with only one hand along with a burning hatred for the men responsible for slaying his kin.”

Does this make sense?: Pirate games are a rarity, especially good ones. So if this game is everything that Octane Games promises then it should be good. Otherwise, it won’t make any sense.
