New Assassin's Creed IV Trailer Shows Edward Kenway At His Stealthiest

Posted by Andy Green

He's a sneaky one

As you can imagine Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was given a lot of attention at Gamescom and Ubisoft chose the occasion to reveal a new trailer showing off the stealth elements of the upcoming release.

During the video we see our hero Edward Kenway target three nasty individuals who need to be eliminated and like all good assassins he goes about it without drawing too much attention to himself - well, mostly.

You can check out the trailer for yourself below. Those wondering what the accompanying song is called should look for "Railroad Track" by Willy Moon.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will launch on a range of platforms including Wii U on 29th October in North America and 1st November in Europe. Are you getting excited for it? Let us know by leaving a comment.

Hopefully it's not as boring as AC3... Honestly, I don't think there has ever been a game that I have gone to sleep 3 times while playing but AC3 now holds the crown

I'm hoping that the main character isn't as boring as Connor was as in 3.

Regardless, this series really impresses me. For a series where there's a game every year, the amount of stuff the developers do each year is remarkable.

I have to agree with @MadAussieBloke and @moomoo! i have barley play AC3 since i got it and i think its because it was a little boring for me. But ill probably end up finishing it before Black Flag comes out! This games look awesome though! Hopefully it'll be more exciting for me.

The gameplay animation and world was amazing in 3,its just the story and main character connos was a bit boring,so adding the range of movements and style of play to a pirate settin should be brilliant!

The Caribbean setting is so much more appealing to me than the previous one. AC3, I agree it was kind of boring... For me it wasn't much the story or characters (the father and the mentor are great characters) but the lack of challenge and the feeling of being hold by the hand the entire time... and at the same time, there are things that you're supposed to figure out by ourself that I barely even used (the villagers thing, and hiring assassins).
The youth of Connor was so brilliant though, I loved that part.
For AC4 I just hope they do a better job of introducing you new mechanics instead of explaining for the 6th time in 6 years every basic mechanics.

@MathRaph cool Connor doesnt even look like his grandfather.. only his assassing costume.. So, that means that's haythan's dad? why did he became a templar and his dad was an assassin? -.-



MathRaph said:

@ScorpionMG If I remember correctly from AC3, Haytham grew up away for his dad and became a templar during while traveling in Europe.

I can't wait to buy Black Flag this Christmas. I bought AC3 earlier this Spring and only got as far as getting off of the ship at the beginning of the game. I was going to play more but I got broke after betting too much and I thought that I should cool down for a while. It's been over a month...

DarkNinja9 said:

as for the trailer here it shows more cut scenes then actual gameplay least only towards the end oh well this does seem promising more then AC3 so i will probably get it
