In the Gamescom trailer for Assassin’s Creed IV, watch pirate and assassin Captain Edward Kenway silently stalk his enemies across cities, rooftops and jungles as stealth is back with a renewed focus. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag offers new gameplay mechanics, features and weapons such as the lethal blowpipe.
In this Gamescom trailer witness Edward as he uses the night to stalk his prey. And funnily enough also manages to be completely stealthy in the middle of the day while jumping across rooftops which you should definitely be used to by now in the Assassin’s Creed series. Edward sure looks evil in these scenes.
Assassin’s Creed IV tells the story of Edward Kenway, who falls from privateering for the Royal Navy into piracy as the war between the major Empires comes to an end. Edward is a fierce pirate and seasoned fighter who soon finds himself embroiled in the ancient war between Assassins and Templars. Set at the dawn of the 18th Century, the game features some of the most infamous pirates in history, such as Blackbeard and Charles Vane, and takes players on a journey throughout the West Indies during a turbulent and violent period of time later to become known as the Golden Age of Pirates.
Assassin’s Creed IV will be available on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo’s Wii U on October 29, 2013.
