Assassin’s Creed 4’s First Gameplay Trailer Revealed

by on March 26, 2013  

Ubisoft has revealed the first gameplay footage of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag in a new trailer for the game, check it out in the video embedded above.

The trailer reveals that the naval combat is a big factor in the game and gives us some more backstory for the game’s protagonist Edward Kenway. Interestingly the trailer also shows some underwater scenes, indicating that we might be able to explore underwater for the first time in the series, so you better watch out for sharks!

After watching the trailer I can’t help but feel that this just seems like more of the same for the Assassin’s Creed series, personally I am getting a bit tired of it. However the potential of underwater exploration could provide a new interesting twist that might make the game stand out, the series needs a drastic improvement, hopefully once the next generation hits this will provide Ubisoft with the power to try something new.

As well as the first gameplay trailer, Ubisoft has also revealed the numerous collectors editions for the game, here are the details below:
