The lights are on
In case the name didn’t give it away, stealth is going to play a big part in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
In the video below, Ashraf Ismail, the game's director, shows off some of Kenway’s stealth skills as he hunts down an arms dealing Templar in busy Havana. We’re treated to a demonstration of the enhanced Eagle Vision, a new blowpipe weapon, and the terrifying, claustrophobic diving bell.
Assassin’s Creed IV releases for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U on October 29. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will follow soon after. Until then, check out our preview.
AC4 looks really good so far.
This game is number 2 on my must have list. Only battlefield 4 is getting my money before I buy this baby!
Next gen needs to hurry the hell up and get here already!
It just gets better and better.
I love the AC series. It's been my favorite new IP this generation, but AC 3 really turned me off for whatever reason. I was honestly considering not getting AC IV. Then I saw that E3 demo and went, "Holy crap!" Now I'm all in, baby!
This looks promising. I love the series, but AC3 disappointed me a bit. Hopefully this will get the series back on track. Can't wait.
AC4 looks awesome, cant wait until it comes out for the ps4.
Wow...this game now has my interest. I skipped Revelations, and haven't played my copy of ACIII yet because they both looked so similar to the first few, but this one...this one is on my radar.
I'm really liking the look of Black Flag. Unlike Assassin's Creed III, this looks like they're trying to make more a game than a tech demo. ACIII's biggest problem was that while it looked pretty and did a lot of impressive things on a technical level (animations, for example) it didn't play that well as a game. ACIII was good, but it felt, I don't know, heavy? When you play an earlier AC game, it feels a bit lighter in terms of combat and navigation, but AC III's controls felt kind of rough.
