‘Assassin’s Creed IV’ Fort Assaults Detailed in New VideoBy: Sean Patterson - August 27, 2013
The release of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is only two months away. Though nearly every aspect of the piracy simulation game has been revealed, Ubisoft is continuing to promote every detail of the game’s plundering and naval combat.
Today the publisher released a new video walkthrough of Black Flag. Narrated by Black Flag Game Director Ashraf Ismail, the video goes through the entire process of attacking and taking one of the game’s many “forts.” Taking forts will reveal more map locations and provides side-missions. Also, taken forts will attack enemy ships.
According to the video, taking a fort is a multi-step process. Players will start by fending off any sea vessels defending the fort, then move in to destroy fort towers. After the towers are opened up, players will have to run in on foot to assassinate the fort commander.
The video also briefly previews a few of the characters in Black Flag, namely protagonist Edward Kenway and his first mate, Adewale:
