This Might Be The Final Assassin’s Creed IV Trailer

Despite the pointed mockery of John's Assassy Creed trailer post, Ubisoft haven't let up in their desire to tell expose every little detail about the fourth (but not really fourth) Assassin's Creed game in trailers. There have been three this week. They are shameless. I was going to do a post with them all again, but the weight of that many Flash instances on one…

No Oceans, No Clarity, No Sense: AssCreed IV PC Delay

Well, it's finally confirmed, and yup, it turns out that Ubisoft's promises of avoiding delaying the PC build of their games haven't exactly proven, well, true. The PC version of Assassin's Creed IV, as speculated after a developer accidentally blurted the truth, will be released three weeks after the current-gen console versions. It's now getting the same release date as the PS4/Xbox One versions. So…

Assassin’s Creed 4000 Minutes Of Gameplay Footage

No, this trailer doesn't actually contain 4000 minutes of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag footage. That would comprise the entire game, which Ubisoft has already handily hacked up into several thousand other trailers. But still, ten minutes is a pretty healthy helping even by Ubisoft trailer-every-14-seconds-to-the-point-where-I-have-yet-to-write-a-sentence-that-doesn't-contain-the-word-trailer standards. And you know what? It actually looks kind of great. I still worry that all this icing only serves…

We’re Just Going To Call It AssFlag

Don't ever let it be said I am not a lover of juvenile humour. To allow its actual name to take the stage for a moment, time for another Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag trailer. I've just gone and counted and this is the twentieth one that has been made available, not counting extra versions, additional languages or live streamed events. I have to pray…

Avast Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Trailer

Actually, it's only four mins long. Boom boom. There have been so many posts about Black Flag, the fancy dress party of Assassin's Creed games, that I nearly didn't post this trailer. You know the deal. It is shippy, watery, and anything that starts with a sea shanty is now legally obliged to have a slow and portentous refrain at the end. But I want…

Assassin’s Creed: The One With Boats Has Cool Boats

This is reporter Nathan Grayson, on the scene for the SHOCKING NEWS TIMES. You might be disturbed and even somewhat aroused to hear that Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag has boats by the boatload, but I can exclusively confirm it via a non-exclusive video. In it, you'll witness scandalous scalawag Edward Kenway steering a ship, upgrading said ship, shooting other ships, leaping between ships, and…

Shock: AC IV PC-Bound ‘A Few Weeks After’ Consoles

Ubisoft's been kinda sorta a little better about treating PC gamers like humans (or at least wallets with people attached) lately - what with the partial decapitation of its draconian DRM and shoring up of arbitrarily spaced out release dates - but some things never change. Mystifyingly, the Assassin's Creed series has continued to bound right over PC on day one, preferring instead to fall…

Piracy Is On Ubisoft’s E3 Agenda: Black Flag

Ah, that joke is so old now. Anyway: Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is all piratey! That means boats and leaping about on tropical islands, which you can see happening the first gameplay footage from E3, below. I'm sure I'd be at least 70% more upbeat about this if I wasn't having to suppress my general cynicism towards this series of games.

Ass Creed IV Vid Conspicuously Lacks Sea Shanties

I say "conspicuously" because the latest Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag trailer contains all other pirate things. Boats, poofy beards, vast seas, tropical settings, gruff voices chattering, cannons, SHAAAAAAAAAAAARK, dead men floating, black flags, a different SHAAAAAAAAARK, and magnificent hats. No sea shanties, though. That is the crying-est of shames. Oh, hm. No shoulder parrots either. And hey, where are all the eyepatches and peg…

Plunder-Full: Assassin’s Creed IV Trailer

Below you will find the first in-game footage of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. I haven't watched it yet because it's being released onto the internet at 5pm and the downloadable copy I have is settling onto my hard drive so slowly that it won't be ready for viewing until 4:59. I'll add some thoughts below the line after I've watched it but, for now,…

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Revealed (Last Week)

When Man In Suit came on stage and said that Ubisoft were the best possible company to tackle piracy, I roared with laughter. But the other two billion journalists sitting in the ornate hall stayed deadly quiet. I didn’t understand. Then six black flags (six black plastic posters) were dramatically unravelled over the balconies to either side of us and Man In Suit announced the…

A Trailer With Pirates: Assassin’s Creed IV – Black Flag

Assassin's Creed IV has pirates, a subtitle, a release date and a trailer. The pirates caught me unawares when the internet accidentally started yo-ho-hoing about them last week and the subtitle was unexpected too, but the release date of October 29th should surprise nobody. The adventures of Desmond and his ancestral chums arrive every autumn as predictably as a new FIFA. As for the trailer,…

Ship Happens: Assassin’s Creed 4 – Black Flag

The ship that sprung a leak has now sailed into harbour, its Jolly Roger flying high. Well, to be honest, it's sort of sitting just outside the harbour waving from the decks. Ubi have sent a press release announcing that they will be fully announcing Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag on Monday. For now, we have confirmation of the game's title and a picture of…

Assassin’s Creed 4 Gets Pirated

Because - haha - there are pirates in it. Hahah. But you thought - haha - that I was saying the next Assassin's Creed game had leaked to Bittorrent. Haha. Hah. Heh. Huh. I am neither funny or clever. You know it, I know it, the tiny baby Jesus knows it. Let's just talk about the leaked reveal of Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag instead.…
