Assassin’s Creed 4 Trailer Shows Naval Gameplay

Assassin's Creed 4

[adsense250itp]New gameplay footage for Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag was released by Ubisoft via a trailer showing off the naval exploration gameplay in the latest installment of the series.

Narrated by Game Director Ashraf Ismail, the seven-and-a-half minute gameplay video shows a vast open world set in the Caribbean for main character Edward Kenway to explore. There are over 50 unique locations Kenway can visit on his ship, the Jackdaw.

Treasure maps can be found around the world and can lead to valuable materials used to upgrade Kenway or his ship. In the video, Edward is shown looting a treasure map from a dead pirate.

The Jackdaw is a vital part of the game. The ship and its crew must be taken care of properly for the best progression. Without proper sailing, the Jackdaw can take damage and crew members can even be lost during a storm.

Viewpoints, a staple of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, are back for Black Flag. This time around, synchronizing a high point will make it available as a fast travel point.

Naval combat introduced in Assassin’s Creed 3 has been expanded for Assassin’s Creed 4. Using the arsenal on the Jackdaw, Kenway can damage opposing ships. As pirates, players can board enemy ships to gain cargo and recruit crew members. In order to earn loot and completely board a ship, players must take out the ship’s captain. Aside from earning money and supplies, players will be able to recruit new crew members, capture enemies to send to Kenway’s fleet or salvage the ship to repair the Jackdaw after a ship is boarded.

In the same manner as taking down a ship, Kenway can use the arsenal of the Jackdaw to take down opposing forts. Once Kenway and his crew take out the highest ranked member of the fort, they gain control and can use it to fend off enemies and gain new side missions in the surrounding area.

Once cargo is acquired, upgrades to the Jackdaw can be done at fisherman villages located throughout the game world. The Jackdaw will need to be upgraded often to progress through the story, which will require players to acquire blueprints and cargo.

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is set to release Oct. 30 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC with a version for next generation consoles expected to be available at launch.

The trailer can be viewed below.
