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.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
