The New Guy Shoots, Stabs And Sharkfights In This First ‘Assassin’s Creed IV’ Gameplay Footage

Back in the day men were men and didn’t need scuba tanks.

Today Ubisoft released the first Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag trailer to feature actual gameplay footage and well, the game looks a lot like Assassin’s Creed III, just a bit more tropical.

The biggest and most interesting addition to the game looks to be the new ability to dive underwater (apparently the new Assassin Edward Kenway has quite the lung capacity). I didn’t find the hunting in Assassin’s Creed III particularly engaging, but I’m pretty into the idea of underwater shark fights.

Hit the jump for the trailer…

Could have used more rum, sea shanties and guys trying to have sex with manatees, but otherwise, the game’s looking like a piratey good time.
