The lights are on
Ubisoft has released a video walkthrough of the Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag mission the company showed at E3. The clip shows off some of the best parts of being a pirate, including finding buried treasure, taking out enemy ships, and expanding your fleet of ne'er-do-wells.
The clip doesn't show off how assassin Edward Kenway took on the mission that kicked off this particular chain of sequences (read our E3 preview for that), but it does highlight some of the game's major systems, with a focus on Kenway's pride and joy, the Jackdaw.

The game is releasing on 6 different platforms? Wow. That's a lot of man power.
After being disappointed with AC3, I'm cautiously optimistic with this game. Although I won't be buying it day 1. Gonna wait for a price drop, which seems to happen faster than you think nowadays.
I'm so excited to pick this up on my birthday at midnight. I easily put in 120+ hours into AC3 & I have a good feeling I'll be putting even more into this one.
I was disappointed with AC3 and was going to write off this game after the Ubisoft E3 conference, but damn if that didn't seem like a whole lot of fun. Reminds me of Red Dead in a way.
Looks awesome! I can hardly wait to play it but gonna hold off just a bit to get the PS4 version.
I don't like how you can only board a ship once its mast is down. I feel that eliminates some of the fun, and challenge on boarding a ship.
This game looks awesome, and it's about time they make a good pirate game.
I almost cried happy tears when I noticed they did away with AC3's dumb regenerative health bar. The whole interface is just much improved, and it seems like this game is going to balance all the good things about past AC games with the better of the changes from AC3. Seriously anxious to get my hands on this.
Wow... Watching this after watching the new trailer for Grand Theft Auto V makes me just laugh at this game. You can tell when developers put a lot of time and care into something and when a series has become cheap and, pardon my french, whored out...
Don't get me wrong, it still looks okay, but I'm not rushing to pre-order, much less buy this title any time soon. Sorry Ubisoft...
AC3 dissapointed me with its story but the gameplay wsd preety fun, i just feel they lost the whole assassins story and the brotherhood, hopefully this one will be better then AC3
Holy hell this looks awesome. Interested about that whole fleet thing. Can you actually sail with your entire fleet or is it just for show?
Ubisoft should just stop giving lessons of fake history mumbo jumbo, concentrate on expanded locations, lots of hard targets,and complete freedom to do it. Assassins creed 3 was a gorgeous looking game, but the story and the missions were such a let down, I mean, you have kill your own father,and when you finally get Charles lee in the end, the stupid and beautiful cutscence does it for you. Come On ubisoft , I'm your biggest fan and angry...And I am and will always be waiting for a open world batman game from ubisoft. Only you guys can do justice with batman
