That first trailer for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag was all CG, with nary a bit of gameplay to be seen. It’s really easy to promise anything when you’re not showing real footage, so we all needed to wait for the next trailer to make a proper judgment on the upcoming game. Now that next trailer is here, and it’s looking good!
I swore I was done with the series after Assassin’s Creed III, but this trailer looks pretty fun. There’s the naval combat from ACIII, the usual stabbing of enemies, and some guy gets shot in the mouth. Plus, sharks! Granted, it’s hard to say that any Assassin’s Creed game fully lives up to what the trailer promises, but there’s some potential here for ACIV to be an awesome pirate game — even if it’s straying away from the whole assassination thing.
