Black Flag takes us on a stroll

Black Flag takes us on a stroll

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was showcased at E3 during Sony's press conference but another special demo was also shown behind closed doors. The following video actually shows small bits of that demo as well as a few new sequences. Enjoy!

Looks like we'll be having more fun in this than the errand-boy simulator, AC3.
Commented on 2013-07-11 01:14:46
Definitely looks to be the best AC yet, at least as far as gameplay variety. The visuals looks very nice, but these look worse than a lot of the other videos I have seen. It almost looks like this was taken from current gen systems, but I don't know why they would do that.

I haven't played an AC game since 2, so this will be on my list at some time...........it just isn't looking like a day 1 or even month 1 at this point...

I hope it doesn't play as boring as it is to watch. Doesn't have me think "next-gen" when I see it either

Looks a lot like assassins creed tbh. If this is next gen footage tho, pretty disappointing. Doesn't even leave footprints in the sand, and his clothes don't even get wet. Just lots of missing details... Doesn't even look like the framerate is that solid. Meh.

I think you guys have completely forgotten how terrible AC3 looked on consoles. Not even the PC version of AC3 look as good as what we're shown here, and we're talking true open world now (finally).

framerate looks extremely solid for a AC game anyway

i am in the middle of playing AC3 right now so i should know. being multigen though clearly hurt it interms of attention to detail

After playing half of Ass Creed 3, I'm done with the series. Ok, now there is a strong focus on naval combat, but in the end it's still the same game with repetitive gameplay that doesn't give a sense of satisfaction after completing a mission or side mission. I mean: find a map, that map lets you fetch another document and with that document you can enhance your ship, only to do another naval battle. Just kill the captain and it's end of mission. Where is the incentive in doing that?

man, crabs having shadows is sooo last gen.
Commented on 2013-07-11 18:27:25
Crabs don't cast their own shadow:)

Framerate looked fine. Graphics look good in area's.

Clothes should be getting wet and dripping - Uncharted/tr wetness.

Footprints should be left in the sand, for me it's those little touches i like to see.

The other thing that i did not like was when he swam, there was no water movement, like he was floating.

I think they're being overly cynical but I'm sorta right there with them. Ubisoft.

yea, but at least it's not Assassins Creed, should at least get some points for that.

not sure how looking the same, smelling the same, tasting the same, but being called something different helps much?
Commented on 2013-07-12 14:42:26
I mean I haven't played any AC, but, Watch Dogs, in not being AC, won't be dragging on the same narrative arc.

And at least the dude isn't fucking wearing a white trench coat with a hood.

Being in a modern city should add enough "newness" along with the whole phone mechanic.

It looks alot better than this at least.

fixed that one for ya. just another cross gen title that is suffering becasue of the current gen version. i mean, compare the division to watchdogs. one looks packed with details one looks barron.

And one of them is running on a killer PC without a doubt. :p

    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (2 Hours ago)

  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Personally i find Kojima rather overrated. Yes MGS and MGS3 were fantastic, 2 wasn't nearly as good, same for 4 and 5....nah. (4 Hours ago)
