New Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag trailer reveals hidden treasure

Ubisoft has unveiled the latest trailer for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. You can watch it right here. It's all about exploration, showing off how Edward Kenway can search the Caribbean for hidden treasure and artifacts. There's loads of gameplay in the video, so it gives you a decent idea of how the game will play. Our verdict: pieces of great!

The most exciting reveals in the trailer? The level of control you have over your ship, the ability to climb the rigging and leap onto an enemy ship to claim its booty, and the fact that there is loads of ambient wildlife in the game. Oh, and you can hunt it too, by harpooning whales.

Black Flag is due out in October on current-gen consoles--yup, including Wii U--with next-gen console and PC versions due a little later in the year.

Andy has been writing about games since 1999, when he nagged the Editors of his University newspaper so much they let him start a brand-new video games section. After that he worked in print mags for over 10 years before switching to the murky world of online editing, when he became Executive Editor on GamesRadar. Now he uses his ill-gotten power and influence to write endless, beard-stroking think-pieces on Destiny and Game of Thrones. Spoil the latest episode of the show, and he will cut you.
