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, here are three things that I hope to see:
1) A shark attack.
2) A shark running up the side of a building.
3) An assassin who has replaced his hidden blades with sharks that pop out of his sleeves.
I reckon that last one is a certainty. Let's find out!
Time til shark? Twenty five seconds. One out of three ain't bad.
Exploring bright and beautiful islands in search of treasure looks like fun and I find myself actually wanting to play this game, which hasn't been the case for the previous seventeen or so Asscreed games.
