AC4: Black Flag next-gen trailer makes plants and waves sexy

There's a new Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag trailer to watch, and it stars... foliage! Yes, the latest video from Ubisoft is talking about the tech powering the next-gen versions of the game, and quite frankly we've never been as excited about dynamic sea waves and individually lit rain drops. And don't get us started on the plants!

Ok, look, tech is usually pretty boring--but this video gives a behind the scenes look at how Ubi Montreal is using the power of Xbox One and PS4 to bring Assassin's Creed into the next-generation. The effects they're creating are pretty damn gorgeous. You can see how it all fits in with the gameplay by checking out these previous videos about piracy and exploration, and stabbing sharks.

Not that bothered about Assassin's Creed? Watch the video and imagine how other developers will be using the tech in their games. Or, you know, go and read another news story about sexy plants.
