Sea to land in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag fort siege video

There's no better place to see Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag's varied gameplay styles in action than in a fort raid. Captain Edward Kenway uses everything available to him as a pirate captain and assassin to level a small naval outpost and claim its ruins for his own in this five-minute video, commented by game director Ashraf Ismail.

When he's done with an after-school-special worthy bit of racial enlightenment, Kenway surveys the scene before him: two ships to sink, two towers to crumble, and one officer to skewer before his soldiers will yield. Each stage of the invasion flows organically into the next, and before you know it, Kenway has the fort flying a different sort of flag.

Assassin's Creed IV will launch on October 31 on current-gen systems and at launch in November on next-gen. If you're impatient, you can even buy it on PS3 first and get a discounted digital version on the PS4's store.

    Hmmm since I get one game per month I am wondering if I should reserve this or Batman Arkham Origins.

    The more I see of this game the more I want it, I've have only played a little of Assassin's Creed 1 and 2. I'm assuming this footage is on PS4 hardware though, I'm curious how it will look on the 360 vs the Xbox One.

    I have to agree with you here. The more of the game I see the more I'm impressed, and I'm one of the people who will defend AC 3 as being a lot better than its critical reception. Obviously the game could be better both graphically and gameplay-wise, as it has current-gen systems holding it back, but literally everything looks like it''s been improved upon. It also feels like it combines the best aspects of 2 and 3, though I'm sad at the lack of a Brotherhood in this game. Having a band of pirate Assassins roaming the seas, each with their own ship, would have been amazing.
