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.
