This Assassin’s Creed IV footage is admittedly slick

I’m already in love with the setting

I’m looking forward to Black Flag in spite of the franchise it belongs to. That’s made all the more evident after this well-put-together demonstration out of E3, which really sells me on the idea of a big-budget pirate game even if it means yet another installment of Assassin’s Creed.

I’ll take what I can get, and if what I can get is seamlessly boarding a ship and taking it off into battle, then that’ll do just fine. Interestingly, Ubisoft tinkered with a naval combat multiplayer mode, but things didn’t work out. “It’s something we tried at the beginning, but we didn’t feel we can get it to a good enough level for this iteration,” game director Ashraf Islamil told GameSpot.
