The new ‘Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’ walkthrough showcases stealthy gameplay

Ubisoft is keeping the Assassin’s Creed IV walkthrough train rolling this week, following up last month’s 13-minute gameplay walkthrough with a new 7-minute video that showcases some of the game’s new stealth mechanics.

To show off some of Edward’s new moves, game director Ashraf Ismail takes us on a mission to assassinate an arm’s dealing Templar. Along the way he gets a bit distracted by an uncharted cave and wanders off to complete a side contract. Throughout his wayward journey, Ismail takes time to highlight the game’s new disarming moves, weapons, eagle vision, and even a new kind of hiding spot.

Compared to AC3, these improvements are relatively minor, but it certainly looks like they make gameplay even more seamless and free than ever before.

AC4: Black Flag hits stores on October 31st, so be sure to circle back for more gameplay footage in the weeks to come
