Don’t get too excited, friends, this is not a gameplay trailer. Instead, Ubisoft elected to get a narrator to talk over art splashes surrounding the age of pirates that’s the central theme in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
It’s an interesting trailer that gives a little taste of the media that’s likely to come through the massive marketing campaign of this now annual release.
Right about now, anyone with my own personal adoration for the One Piece anime and manga series probably feels like Ubisoft took a page from the manual of being Gold D. Roger. And that’s a joke only One Piece fans will get, so I’ll just back away from this virtual podium.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will hit the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Wii U platforms on October 29th, 2013. We assume it’s also slated for whatever Microsoft has for their next console. Buying it on the PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 will earn you an extra hour of gameplay, by the way.
What do you think of the new trailer?
