Holy Ship: Assassin's Creed: Black Flag Actually Looks Awesome

Surely 13-minutes of gameplay footage is enough to decide whether or not a game will suck or not? That's what we're hoping with the new Assassin's Creed: Black Flag coming soon. Check this awesome gameplay video out to see if we're onto something.

Assassin's Creed: Black Flag takes place in the beautiful Carribean, and you guessed it: pirate ships are back!

You get your own ship in this game which the studio refers to as the "second lead character" of the game. You upgrade your ship like you upgrade your other gear and the ship is just as important to you as any piece of kit.

You can maraud around the Carribean on your boat, fight, plunder and sink other vessels or you can just explore the incredibly vast open world.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm on board for this game. It lands in stores in October 2013.

    Looks great. Playing Assassins Creed 2 now since it's the gold free game at the moment, absolutely loving it. Getting obsessive over completing everything, might be the first 100% game I complete in years.

      AC2 is easily in my over-all top-10 list. Amazing game. The only thing I didn't do was collect all the feathers, IIRC.

      AC2 is easily my fave in the series. Brotherhood is a tighter game in its gameplay, but AC2 has such a great pacing and sense of progress and adventure.

    After Assassins Creed 3, which was the first game I actually got bored of and didn't finish, I am a bit skeptical, but so far this looks impressive. Hopefully it will get up to the level of the second game, which was absolutely fantastic and easily the best in the series.

    Yeah ... no. I was fooled for the last time with AC3. Not going to get this one. Didn't even finish three or revelation. Stopped because it was getting repetitive.

    AC2 however was too awesome.

    30 seconds in Im pissed off. That much clothing/capes/gowns hes wearing and he dives into water? He will never dry!

    all aboard the hype train that keeps this franchise alive! choo choo!

    Looks exactly the same as the other games, just bigger, and more gameplay...tht's all :S

    I wish they would spend more time to improve the AI :(

    Seriously? When I saw that first ship sail off I nearly cried. They do NOT accelerate like that, the guns do not reload that quick, that is seriously abhorrent.
    Catering for 13 year old pew-pew addicts by making muzzle-loading weapons rapid-fire is just cringeworthy.
    I had hope, but after watching that, will definitely not be buying.
