Ubisoft have shared a “gameplay trailer” for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, that shows off in-engine footage from the upcoming game, but no actual gameplay. Instead you get a monologue from protagonist Edward Kenway. Watch it below:



Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be released for the PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, PlayStation 4 and other next-gen systems this Fall, with current-gen consoles getting the game first. North America will see the game on October 29th and Europe on November 1st.

    The hood is silly. How do all of these unrelated Assassin’s Creed protagonists have the same outfit?

    Playing unconnected Assassins in various time frames can’t be too troubling of a disconnect either. It would still be interesting without tying the games together. The “Assassin’s Outfit” and Desmond just don’t seem necessary.

    • SirRichard

      Except they’re all related, that’s one of the elements of the story. And it isn’t the same outfit, it’s the same style of outfit with similar design elements, but with noticeable differences. Edward here does not have Connor’s suit, just as Connor didn’t have Ezio’s and Ezio didn’t have Altair’s.

      They keep the robes because it’s one of the series’ hallmarks now, and as for Desmond, it’s been confirmed that he’s been dropped for IV. It’d be hard to justify his presence after III’s ending, at any rate.

        also the outfits look similar because it suppose to be the style of the outfit assassins wear in the world of AC

    • Corey Schulz

      I do agree that the series could do without the Desmond part… I find that a take-away and annoyance from the story. I think that the entire game for IV should take place in Edward’s life.

        It has been said god know how long ago that Desmond is history for AC’s…
        He died.

  • After how shit 3 was i can’t get excited for this game at all.

    • jeka69

      I get offended a little but what I hate more is that I can’t disagree with you. I miss the hype that I felt when I first saw Ezio :(

    • Kevin Schwarz

      You’re right, they are just milking the $%@# out of AC now, it seems.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Now? They’ve been doing that for years though.

    it’s hard to get exited about another ac so soon but i do love pirates

  • Alexander Aubert

    i think assasins creed protagonist, stop being an assasin after assasins creed 3

    • Kevin Schwarz

      He stopped after AC2 IMO.

  • OkamiKing

    So when do we kill Al Capone?

  • I didn’t even realise this effectively makes him a pirate-ninja…

  • Kevin Schwarz

    I wouldn’t be surprised if some day Ubisoft announces an AC the stone age…
