Swimming, slashing and sailing in the Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag gameplay trailer

Ubisoft has just released the first gameplay trailer for Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, finally giving us a glimpse of what all the throat cutting and roof hopping will look like in the next installment of the AC series. It’s basically just what you’d expect – classic Assassin’s Creed style gameplay, but with more cutlasses, feathered hats, and eye patches. It appears that Ubisoft has just expanded on the naval portion of AC3, and given it a bigger plot and some new characters. That’s not to say it doesn’t look awesome though – we’re still just as pumped as ever to get back into the AC world – especially if it involves pirates.
