I saw this, and I'm pretty amused this leaked out so early. I'm not sure if they're gonna release these screenshots on Monday, or if its just gonna be That teaser-trailer. Oh-Boy!

Edit: Here's a GameSpot article 'bout the same thing, n' source. GameSpot: Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag screenshots leak Amusing Ubisoft tweet: @CarstenMyhill:

Leakier than the Titanic

So that's all I got. I loved the amazing forest in AC3. I imagined I was in a King Arthur story, or something, and there was a dragon I had to go slay. I dunno mans, that one forest looked British. ~ Cool.

Edit: joystiq reports newer slo-mo teaser. [Watch before it gets pulled] joystiq: Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag screens leak, trailer sails again

Amusing, guns, guns, pirates.

Man, I'm getting more and more grateful I didn't manage to burn myself out on AC, this looks pretty great, but then III "looked" pretty great too and apparently that didn't pan out so well.

This could actually be fucking awesome, loved the naval combat in AC3. If they actually implement a open world full of islands to explore.

But does anyone just wish they would get the present day sections and story of the game out of it, and the futuristic UI as well. Nothing worse than travesing though the frontier in the 1700's and getting a NEW EMAIL! pop up.

I just want a AC game without a DaVinci Code storyline thrown in.

As much as the pirate action sounds awesome, I refuse to get excited after what they did with III.

Looks like Assassin's Creed may have jumped the...whale.

I know, I know. /suicide.

Anywhoo the idea of being able to explore the scurvy seas, uncovering mysterious islands and such, sounds fantastic. While it's easy to be cynical about the series given the mess it's in, I'm finding it difficult to keep my rising levels of excitement at bay.

Also, I swear to God, does nobody ever bother posting threads in the correct forum pages these days?!

@yummylee: I get a little worried a moderator is gonna send my post back to General Discussion because everyone starts doing AC threads as stuff comes out. Same with Destiny. ~ But I'll play.

Hoodie Simulator: Caribbean Edition. I'd prefer it if this were a new IP, but I'll take my buccaneering any way I can.

Might as well call it Assassin's Creed IV: Leaky Business at this point. I swear, every single facet that they've been building up to has been leaked thus far.

Looks nice. Interested to see if the naval stuff will be a huge part of the game.

Ubisoft needs to just admit that they're "leaking" this stuff on purpose, this is getting ridiculous.

Wow that is one masturbatory trailer. Yo I'm blackbeard and you're a badass! Not saying it's offensive or even out of the norm just kinda noticeable to me right now.

So is this the group that did Revelations?

I have really love the franchise since AC2. I enjoy them, but once Ive played through and the game has had time to digest....Cant help but feel disappointed somehow. I sure as fuck dont want a new one already. I think im done with AC.

Apparently after ACIII had a chopped up, loading screened-ized world, this one's going to be all open world, and that makes it kinda Wind Waker-y.

And I approve.

Also, pirates. Argh.

You don't know how many people envy you. I wish, WISH, I stopped at Brotherhood which was an enormously satisfying high note. Revelations and AC3 will make you turn from an AC lover to a hater in an instant.

My advice to you, keep the sweet taste of Brotherhood in your mouth until Black Flag hits and play that. Revelations and AC3 do not exist.

Get rid of the frontier from AC3 add some ports and an open-world ocean to roam, give me some more ship/weapon options and we are all set to sail.

That jungle image makes me hope there won't be too much of that, unless it is some linear treasure hunts. Give me open-world waters and ports and tight dungeons and jungles.

Exactly what kind of PC do I need for it to look like those screens or are these "next-gen" screenshots?

Yeah...but like Brad I want to see it through, I'm not a crazed fan about the franchise and I've heard the backlash about Rev and 3 so I know what I'm getting into, but I enjoy the ancient setting the most and that is mainly why I play the games. Basically if I could just get rid of the bullshit sci fi stuff I would enjoy them more and I didn't think Brotherhood is the best, I still enjoyed the first one the most, even though it has major problems, that is the one I felt like a badass assassin the most.

@nightriff: Revelations and ACIII aren't as bad as people make them out to be. They're not as good as ACII or Brotherhood, but they aren't awful like some will have you believe. ACIII is definitely worth playing, if only for the Bunker Hill mission. That was pretty rad.

You said ''Real screenshots leaked''. These aren't real screenshots, these are heavily modified scenes made for marketing. The ''real'' screens won't look anywhere as good as these.

I'm a little bit confused about the massive hatred about ACIII to be honest. I thought it was a solid game. Not the best in the series, but it is FAR from the trainwreck everybody seems to make it out to be.

I know they've got a brand to market, but why not just make a new Pirates! game or something similar? I really don't want to have the shitty story on top of really good mechanics and setting.
