Get drunk, kill a bull shark - new Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag gameplay trailer amazes

The latest Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag gameplay trailer is live, and it's another insightful look at what's fast becoming an essential next-gen launch title. Entitled 'Open Sea' the trailer shows off a handful of cool things you'll be able to do as badass pirate, Edward Kenway. There's bar-brawling, drinking, sea shanties, shark hunting, loot... look, just watch the trailer below, ok?

The footage looks amazing, and the PlayStation controls in the top right show that the game is running on PS4. Remember the last AC gameplay walkthrough? That was running on PS4 too.

You'll be able to buy Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag on 1 November, if you want the current-gen console versions. It'll be a launch title for both Xbox One and PS4.
