Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is all about stealth in this trailer


To go along with the screenshots below, we’ve also got a new stealth trailer (kinda the opposite of the cool image above, which I included below the fold just for fun…and because it’s cool) to show you coming out of gamescom 2013 today.  The more I see of this title, the more I’m convinced it may in the top 5 of all next-gen launch titles – no small feat for a sequel.   Here’s a nibble about the trailer:

Watch pirate and assassin Captain Edward Kenway silently stalk his enemies across cities, rooftops and jungles as stealth is back with a renewed focus in Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag featuring new gameplay mechanics, features and weapons such as the lethal blowpipe.

Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag tells the story of Edward Kenway, who falls from privateering for the Royal Navy into piracy as the war between the major Empires comes to an end. Edward is a fierce pirate and seasoned fighter who soon finds himself embroiled in the ancient war between Assassins and Templars. Set at the dawn of the 18th Century, the game features some of the most infamous pirates in history, such as Blackbeard and Charles Vane, and takes players on a journey throughout the West Indies during a turbulent and violent period of time later to become known as the Golden Age of Pirates.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is set for release on PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U on October 29th, with PC, PS4, and Xbox One coming shortly thereafter.  Stay tuned…like Watch Dogs, we are watching this title very closely and with great interest.
