*VIDEOS* Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag World Premiere Trailers and Screenshots
Ubisoft finally released details regarding the next title in their highly successful franchise Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Just from these trailers and the screenshots, it's easy to see that Ubisoft utilised a lot of the technology and game engines developed for AC3 as well as the increased power of the upcoming Playstation 4. This game looks gorgeous and huge. Here's what Ubisoft had to say about the game:
Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag tells the story of Edward Kenway, a young British man with a thirst for danger and adventure, who falls from privateering for the Royal Navy into piracy as the war between the major Empires comes to an end. Edward is a fierce pirate and seasoned fighter who soon finds himself embroiled in the ancient war between Assassins and Templars. Set at the dawn of the 18th Century, the game features some of the most infamous pirates in history, such as Blackbeard and Charles Vane, and takes players on a journey throughout the West Indies during a turbulent and violent period of time later to become known as the Golden Age of Pirates.
Gameplay in Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is based upon the franchise’s proven tenets. Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag features a vast open world with more than 50 navigable locations. Combat combines the weaponry of the Assassin’s Order with armaments of the era, and rewards both daring and stealth. And the series’ acclaimed multiplayer experience is more varied and ruthless than ever in Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag.
The game will be available October 29th 2013 for PC, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360 and WiiU. We expect more details to be released during the press event scheduled at noon today. Game pre-order will be available through the Ubisoft Shop and the usual video game retailers.
Pre-ordering Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag on PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 gives access to 60 minutes of additional gameplay downloadable via the PlayStation Network after the game’s launch. Pre-ordering at EB Games will include a Limited Edition collectible poster (while supplies last) featuring artwork created by Todd McFarlane of Spawn fame.
