‘Assassin’s Creed IV’ Gamescom Trailer ReleasedBy: Sean Patterson - August 22, 2013
Though both Sony and Microsoft have paid millions for console-exclusive release titles for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, it appears that third-party publishers will have the most-anticipated next-gen launch titles come November. Activision will clean up with its yearly Call of Duty shooter, and EA will dominate sports gaming with Madden and FIFA. Ubisoft, on the other hand, will entice action gamers with titles such as Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Watch Dogs.
The release of Black Flag is now around two months away , and Ubisoft today released yet another trailer for the title. This one, much like the last video released, focuses more on Black Flag‘s classic “stealth” gameplay. Though this might seem counter-intuitive for a game Ubisoft has heavily promoted with boisterous pirates and raging sea battles, the new trailer serves as a reminder that it is still an Assassin’s Creed game. The hidden blades and free-running/climbing are still front-and-center.
