Assassin vs. sharks, first trailer for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

No, really, did Edward Kenway just fight off Jaws? In this first look of the fourth Assassin’s Creed installment, there’s plenty of swashbuckling action on the Caribbean islands and swimming, too, it seems deep down in the sea where stingrays lurk. Of course, just like every other Assassin’s Creed trailer, the video cuts away seconds after Edward leaps down onto his target, before he performs an aerial assassination. There’s lots of naval warfare on the high seas to keep your […]

Despite being called “cocky” and “charismatic”, Edward looks angry (or maybe tired?), a little sallow and underweight as implied […]

Ubisoft to PETA’s complaints: “We do not condone illegal whaling”

Not too long ago, PETA complained about Assassin’s Creed 4 that would feature harpooning whales, saying, “Whaling – that is, shooting whales with harpoons and leaving them to struggle for an hour or more before they die or are hacked apart while they are still alive – may seem like something out of the history books, but this bloody industry still goes on today in the face of international condemnation, and it’s disgraceful for any game to glorify it. PETA […]

The first screenshots of Assassin’s Creed 4 are looking incredibly impressive. Ubisoft is said to be giving the franchise a makeover to create a new experience for fans which, I say, is an excellent choice.

One of the pictures give us a very good look of Edward, who is donning […]

New Assassin’s Creed 4 leak reveals release date, coming to next-gen consoles

Not long after Ubisoft confirmed Assassin’s Creed 4, a glitch that occurred on the game’s official website suggesting that the next Templar-vs-Assassin game will be released on October 29 this year for next-gen consoles.
With PlayStation 4 slated for launch somewhere in November or “Holiday 2013” as announced during the meeting, this hardly comes as a surprise although the next-gen console may get a later release date because of the weeks that set both releases apart. The same may […]
