The lights are on
The latest trailer for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag takes the time to highlight the mode that always seems to take a backseat to the story campaign: multiplayer.
I've always felt that Assassin's Creed's multiplayer's fun is difficult to explain to someone without letting them play a few rounds. On paper is looks odd, maybe even boring, but in practice the multiplayer is intense fun, and radically different from the multiplayer shooter experiences most are familiar with. Hopefully Black Flag's multiplayer will be similarly enjoyable.
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC on October 29. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game will be available a few days before the next-gen console's launches on November 12 and 19 respectively.

Video O_O fight battle.
It looks pretty cool! I haven't really been able to play the other Assassin's Creed's multi-player because I've always borrowed the games from a friend.
I love the multiplayer to this game and it does sound pretty lame on paper but when you play it and everyone plays it "the way it's supposed to be played" it is a fantastic experience.
im actully really looking forward to the story of this one
Whoo let's go October 29th!
Wow. They're bringing back guns to the multiplayer...how disappointing.
I can't wait for the cosplay's of this. Ooh - that mask girl. I guarantee that at least one timber's going to be shivering! XXX
those kills doe
Is that Snake with the bandana?
That contemporary music is way weird for this video, but okay, whatevs. In any case, I'll probably be tackling as many people as I always do in Assassin's Creed this fall. Leap of awesome. . . awaaaayyy!
