‘Assassin’s Creed 4’ Release Date Looming Beyond ‘101’ Trailer [Video]

The Assassin’s Creed 4 release date is almost here, but first, Ubisoft has dropped a new “101” trailer to instruct gamers on the finer details and introduce us to what’s in store.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Assassin’s Creed 4 is about a British privateer, Edward Kenway, who takes to the high seas in search of riches and glory. Along the way, you’ll meet such infamous men as Blackbeard, Woodes Rogers, and Charles Vane, and forge many an alliance against the Colonial Empire, an oppressive gathering of powerful men (and probably Templars) who would be happy just to see the pirates dead.

Ubisoft has spared no expense in making the next-gen versions of Assassin’s Creed 4 as realistic and impressive as possible, with waves that actually toss the ship about and tornadoes that threaten to do much worse. The raging seas are full of sharks that want little more than to feast on those who don’t survive such conditions, and possibly on those who do.

Returning from Assassin’s Creed II are expansive caverns which mirror the Tombs with puzzles and tricky pathways to fantastic treasures. It is unknown at this point what said treasures are, or if they are just treasure.

Another returning feature is a parkour-friendly city environment which made travel interesting back then, even though there is only one place where this is available. Havana will bring veterans back to the days of roaming Italy and hunting down Templars from the rooftops.

‘Assassin’s Creed 4’ ‘101’ trailer introduces new hazards, like sharks

Among the new aspects of Assassin’s Creed 4, whose release date is only a week away, are over 50 islands ready to explore and plunder, and some caves you can only access by using an 18th century diving bell and submerging beneath rock formations. Of course this will leave you completely unarmed as you approach guards who may be hiding in those caves, but a few quick tricks from Edward Kenway’s arsenal should eliminate them for good measure and have you returning to your ship perhaps a few trinkets richer.

The Assassin’s Creed 4 “101” trailer shown above introduces you to the characters, the locations, the ship to ship battles, and various hazards you’ll face throughout the game arriving on October 29 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC. With the colorful cast of characters and the promise of more epic adventures than ever before in the series, Assassin’s Creed fans should be more than eager for their chance to play Ubisoft’s latest offering.

With the pending Assassin’s Creed 4 release date a week away, are you ready to face the pirate life?
