New Trailer Shows Off Kenway's Sneakier Side

Pirate shenanigans take a backseat to shadowy executions in Ubisoft's new trailer for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

Ubisoft's latest tease of Black Flag comes straight from Gamescom, and features Kenway's more predatory side as he ambushes unsuspecting foes in the jungle, sneaks across rooftops, and drops in on the leader of a platoon of soldiers – who says you need to be stealthy all the time?

Ubisoft also says that players will have new mechanics and weapons at their disposal in Black Flag, including a silent blowpipe. However, we were more impressed with the antics available on the open seas during our hands-on time with Black Flag during Gamescom, which you can read about here.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will be available PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U on October 29, and on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in November.

  • Well at least some of that footage was stealthy. I really do hope they improve the enemy AI but wish they'll improve all AI (mainly because I'm tired of seeing pedestrians have the some free climbing skills as me while wearing ye olde pantaloons). And I really want to see more missions that offer a high profile AND low profile (ie stealth) approach to the objective. And an overhaul to the fighting mechanics would be nice since currently you can pretty much finish any fight with one hand in ACIII.

  • God damn you! Stop making your trailers so f*cking awesome!
