Assassin’s Creed IV First Gameplay Footage Surfaces

Ubisoft has unveiled a new video of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, which features its first ever gameplay footage. The trailer showcases the different types of gameplay that the title has to offer and fills us in on Edward Kenway’s motives as the title’s protagonist.

Unlike the other protagonists in the Assassin’s Creed series, Edward Kenway is something of a rogue and not someone you’d call a good guy as he commits various acts of theft, destruction, and murder in the game’s many exotic locations. Friend to the notorious pirate Blackbeard, Edward Kenway will find himself in an adventure on the high seas where he goes against sailors and navy men of every stripe and nationality.

In addition to the gameplay reveal, Ubisoft has announced what they’re calling the Black Island Pack for Assassin’s Creed IV, which includes an exclusive adventure set aboard the Black Island, upon which you’ll have the chance to hunt for treasure and board the deadly Black Ship.

Additionally, Edward Kenway will gain the use of Captain Morgan’s legendary silver flintlock pistols and players will be able to take on the role of Captain Morgan himself in multiplayer, with a special costume, picture, and title.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be released on the PC, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and Wii U.

Once again, the UK gets badass collector sets and we just get the crappy hand me downs from Gamestop.

Sure the game seem quite beautiful, the fighting skills too.
And maybe with 6 more years, we will finally know the ultimate truth behind this neverending story.
The newbloods ‘d be able to buy the beginning of the story for few bucks because resale is forbidden and next gen will kill the previous one’s.
Well done UBI you had create the first soap game.
