Assassin's Creed IV begins a new chapter in the continuing saga of Abstergo and the Animus and centers around British pirate Edward Kenway, the grandfather of Assassin's Creed III protagonist Connor. As with previous Assassin's Creed games, the player will encounter real-world characters, events and locations. Ocean warfare and exploration will play a large part, as the game aims to be a more open experience than its frequently scripted predecessor.

After playing and enjoying ACIII I am totally looking forward to this game.

Looking good. I really enjoyed the naval battles from III the most, I should be right at home with this one.

Looks cool Ubisoft, but self control says it's either this or Watch_Dogs for me. I am really liking the ideas in Watch_Dogs, so I'm going in that direction. I did really enjoy AC2, but in my eyes it got repetitive after a while and I never fully beat the game.

After previously enjoying this series but then being quite disappointed with the last two games (especially Revelations), I'm cautiously optimistic about this game. It looks nice and I've heard a lot of good things from the devs, but I'm just severely disappointed how they took would could have been an amazing game in ACIII and instead it turned out to be just above par.

I hope this game runs smoother than AC3 did. That game felt laggy at times. Hopefully the optimise it for Wii U this time!

I don't get why most game trailers show 90% cinematics and 10% gameplay. It's a game, not a movie.

On topic, might make this my first AC title.

Gaming websites are going to have their hands full this holiday discussing every minute graphical difference between the WiiU, PS3, Xbox360, PS4 and KinectBox versions of this, Watch_Dogs and whatever else hits all 5 systems simultaneously.

It's looking like in the immediate absence of Nintendo 1st party games my Wii U is going to be continually gorging on M rated games Most of which are from Ubi.
