Rum Doings: Fourteen Minutes Of Assassin's Creed 4

Would you like to see 14 minutes of Assassin’s Creed 4 footage? Well tough, because you have to. It’s PS4 footage, which means there’s a good chance it’ll match PC on release. Should it actually get released at the same time, of course. Oddly enough, Ubisoft hasn’t found time to get back to us regarding that.

Blimey, it looks huge. Check out the map at about 1:20. A bit of Far Cry 3 influence there, methinks. The demo nicely shows how naval combat isn’t some mini-game tucked in there, but rather something that fluidly occurs as you’re playing. Which is good news.

It’s interesting, watching, thinking, “Wow, this looks amazing!” And then remembering that when you’re actually playing it it’s going to fuck around with bloody obligatory time-travel DNA bullshit tedium in between. If only they’d accept that was always SO STUPID, and just be the game they’re obviously supposed to be.

I’m not sure “demasted” is a word.
