Earlier today, Ubisoft released a new gameplay trailer for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag showcasing how stealth plays a part in the overall gameplay experience.
The video above intertwines several narrative sequences with a few action vignettes featuring our hero in all his glory. Fans of the series have long desired for stealth to be brought back into the the fold and the feature is now stronger than it has ever been. This timing of this video also seems appropriate since Splinter Cell: Blacklist released just a few days ago and is a series were stealth is paramount to survival.
Ever since Gamescom kicked off a few days ago, Black Flag has been one of the games getting a ton of attention. It’s evident that Ubisoft is banking on this title to be successful on both current and next-gen consoles. Only time will tell if they truly do get what they desire.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag releases on October 29th in North America and on November 1st in Europe for the PC, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and Xbox 360. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game will be released at a later day. Did any of you enjoy the new trailer out of Gamescom? Feel free to let us know in the comments section below.
