Edited by Evilsbane

They have done so many trailers but this one was actually good, the display of tech was interesting from both the info being spoken and the visuals onscreen, good on ya ubi, now..shut up please.

Guess it's about time for the daily AC4 video.

Yeah it looks impressive, really good looking plants and water effects

My question is though, what is all that running on? A really good PC? PS4? Xbox One? Will the next-gen console versions look like that?

It's a PC. Even though we've seen live gameplay demos, much of what you're seeing here are likely scripted events/scenes that are running in engine but under the best possible conditions.

I've never been excited for an Assassin's Creed game. These trailers are seriously pushing me towards making a pre-order that I can't afford.

@humanity: seriously. I hate guessing what they are running on in these gameplay vids. It's nice they said explicitly that its next gen for this one.....

This tech looks cool, especially the foliage, but nothing about this game is grabbing me. It just looks like they've taken AC3 and added a pirate theme. After 10+ hours of AC3 I'm finally starting to get into it but they treat the player like they've never played a game before, slowly introducing each mechanic and I still don't think I'm done yet.

@mrcraggle: And the weird thing is they never explain a lot usefull information either, like how to level up your artisans or recruit new assassins, I found both of these out just messing around in the enviroment.

As long as the game looks at least similiar to these trailers and runs well i'll be happy. (I think they've said 1080p & 60fps for PS4, and presumably XB1)

I'm curious how this game will run on Xbox 360 & PS3, Considering how bad AC3 ran.

I've only just started the artisan & assassins stuff and I thought that may be the case of introducing it but not properly explaining it. The things I'm really disliking are the stupid optional side missions to get full sync. Sometimes you'll get one in a moment and not even notice it only to then fail. I too would like to see how it performs. I played 1, 2 and Brotherhood on 360 and they were mostly fine but playing AC3 on my PS3 is fine for the most part but I've noticed the frame rate drop quite bad but only during slow scenes such as conversations. I should point out that i'm only playing AC3 due to PS+, I originally had zero interest in it after seeing how little the series had really moved on since 2.

I don't like the annualisation of this series, but that def. looks like a game worth getting for next generation.

Posted by triviaman09

It's cool how they show a little bit of how the tech works in this video. When the character was running around on that ship and snapping from object to object, a lot of how movement works in the AC series started to make more sense from a design perspective.

i had no idea they were making another AC game

Posted by Hunter5024

I really wish this was just some random pirate game, because I don't think I can stomach yet another Assassins Creed, and I actually love this series.

Posted by Spitznock

It does look very pretty.

Posted by armaan8014

Love how everybody else is also beginning to get hyped like me :)

Posted by gesi1223

It may look good, but will it BE good? AC3 looked good and it wasn't so awesome.

Posted by LiquidPrince

God damn, I love AC.

Edited by Nethlem

Looking cool, but i honestly doubt that the engine is "simulating" so many things at once.

Also: Dynamic foliage, now you can see where you sneak! And the enemies don't notice that foliage moving? :D

either preorder numbers are not where they want them to be, or they are marketing the hell out of the game,

game looks good though, might even forgive the sins of assassins creed 3.

Or everyone got really butthurt after assassins creed 3 bombing out.

i aint gonna sit here and argue about this, but some of that butthurt was justified, as that game was extremely disappointing.

Finally a video about AC4, why are they keeping this so secret?

Edited by Redsox44

I laughed when he said you can now see where you are hiding by the movement of the plants, then why can't the AI see you? These games are too easy

This and Watchdogs are two of my most wanted games before christmas.

Don't worry - this'll look like shit in two years. Why do people care about graphics, again?

Posted by Fattony12000

Lookin' pretty sleeks for my second ever Assassin's Creed game, especially coming from the first one on Xbox 360 a few years back!

Posted by Cipher76

That is one dynamic looking game.

I'm looking forward to this game, but this video was way over my head :)

I think you might be over exaggerating just a bit. Early Xbox and PS3 games looked like really good Xbox and PS2 games before they started using the power of the entire system. This already looks better than anything that came out on PS3 and Xbox, besides maybe a handful of titles.

DAT FOLIAGE

I'm looking forward to it. I enjoyed AC3 and now with pirates? I'm sold.

I did not however enjoy ship battles, so, it will be interesting.

Are people ironically saying quest or have they just not payed attention to anything on the website for months now?

Now that next-gen videos are coming in, GiantBomb really needs to start uploading 1080p videos.

@humanity: Agreed. This is a very good demonstration of next gen improvements.

Mmmmmm sexy looking visuals.

Posted by PandaBear

Is EGM still a thing? I'm being serious? It's at the end of the trailer... I thought the magazine died ... again.

Also, Black Flag looks brilliant ...

Rain is the best weather. More video games should do good, dynamic rain.
