Assassin's Creed IV Gameplay Highlights Tropical Action
If you're a fan of the Pirates of the Caribbean, you'll probably love the setting in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.
That historically compelling setting is on full display in the latest trailer, which features nearly fourteen minutes of awesome gameplay. There's also some helpful commentary.
As you can see, ships will play an even bigger role this time around. Well, of course; we're talking about pirates, right? Ships made their debut in last year's Assassin's Creed III and perhaps surprisingly, Ubisoft implemented a really solid mechanic. It was about as good as you can expect from a game that isn't based specifically on naval warfare, and that's pretty damn impressive. Obviously, it'll be more involved in Black Flag, which you may or may not like.
As for the rest, it's clearly Assassin's Creed. There's no mistaking this for anything else, which is one of the reasons this series has been so popular. There's really nothing quite like AC out there.
