The newly released trailer gives a glimpse into how naval combat will play out in the next installment of Assassin's Creed. Life on the high seas clearly is not for the faint of heart. Or landlubbers.

Does the new trailer leave you wanting more, or are you unconvinced that Black Flag is worth picking up this fall? Let us know in the comments.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 29, 2013. The release dates for Wii U and PC have not been confirmed. The Wii U will not be receiving a limited edition release.

The limited edition will be available on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360  for $129.99 on release day and is available for preorder now. The limited edition will also be coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at an undisclosed later date.

  • As long as it loses the resource gathering that ACIII had. I'll be there!
  • Mod
    Franchise fatigue has certainly wear in, and this half-hearted limited edition set doesn't do much for me. With that said, I might have been interested in it still, but there is just way too much competition this year for me to choose between.

    Beyond: Two Souls, GTA V, Watch_dogs, Battlefield 4, etc.
  • As a diehard AC fan, I'm still interested in Black Flag, but I honestly doubt Ubisoft can keep even me interested in the series for too many more installments.
  • I would like to get it nut my preorder is on the Wii U version. Ubisoft should really consider making this available to all 6 platforms.
  • I'd rather have no more ACs. And that sucks.

  • I'm waiting for the PS4 edition of AC4.
  • I love the fluid gameplay of this series and I think this naval mechanic is a good match for it. Most of all, I enjoyed the narrative of the franchise. I hope this story is intriguing enough to hook me for more to come. I'll be getting this on Xbox 1, but not the limited edition.
  • I REALLY would like to fight hammerhead sharks in this game. Anyone else?
  • Well thats a bummer for owners of the Wii U.... I'd have considered it for mine. However, I will be getting this on the PS4 then.

  • Am I the only one that actually despises the naval combat?
  • $129.99?!? I would've bought it if it were $80-$100. Nevertheless, I plan on picking up AC4.
  • This game will be meant to be played on the PS4. I can see the current console versions to be so glitched up because of how watered down they will be.
  • that price.

  • It sure is a good price.... For anyone who wants to blow another $130 like people before did. Why is there never a $80 limited edition?

  • The statue looks great, but I'm not buying this game just for that. I'm way more interested in Beyond, GTA V, and Arkham Origins. AC4 is gonna have to wait.

  • It's Pirates in an open-world. Of course I'm picking it up!

  • Gotta preorder that limited edition ASAP so I don't f*ck it off like I did The Last Of Us Post Pandemic Edition.

  • i will be getting it but i will not be able to platinum it because, like AC3, i HATED the naval missions...
  • $130.00... I am planing of getting the game but i will pass on this Limited Edition .....
