Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag video shows side-missions and polite fights

Ubisoft are getting a taste for this narrated video lark. Only yesterday they were giving us nearly fifteen minutes of Watch Dogs footage . Now, it's Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag's turn, with ten minutes of pinching, pirating and harpooning. If you're not aware, Assassin's Creed is a third-person action series set in an alternate universe where people only ever fight one-on-one, even when there's a group. From the video, we see that this version will continue that politeness-to-a-fault tradition.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is out November 1st.

He eventually joined full-time as a news writer, before moving to the magazine to review immersive sims, RPGs and Hitman games. Now he leads PC Gamer's UK team, but still sometimes finds the time to write about his ongoing obsessions with Destiny 2, GTA Online and Apex Legends. When he's not levelling up battle passes, he's checking out the latest tactics game or dipping back into Guild Wars 2. He's largely responsible for the whole Tub Geralt thing, but still isn't sorry.
