What? Why is IntoMobile writing about console games? Well, we’re all geeks here at IntoMobile, and I’ve been a gamer for quite a while now, so we’re going to start a little experiment. We’ll be sprinkling in some gaming news here and there to keep the all but deadly mobile enthusiast/gamer geek up to date. Tell us if you like (or don’t like) what you see in the comments below! With products like Project Shield and Sony’s Remote Play bridging the gap between gaming methods, it’s enough for us to dip our toes in the gaming waters a bit.
But onto Assassin’s Creed IV!
I was very skeptical and uninterested when I first heard that Assassin’s Creed III would be set during the American Revolution, as I had no interest in the series going in that direction. Luckily, AC3 is one of the most solid titles of the series, deploying some great game mechanics and storyline. So when I saw the newly-released trailer for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, which centers around pirates, I remain hesitant, but hopeful of the upcoming title.
You’ll find the trailers lacking a good amount of gameplay, and what you’re given is a long and expected tease of what’s to come. We’ll likely see a return of steering a battling on ships in Black Flag, which was a part of AC3 that I didn’t love at all. What else could be borrowed from previous titles remains to be seen, but the usual suspects (guns, hidden blade) are all accounted for in the trailer.
Black Flag needs to be a solid successor to the last title in the series, which seems to be a tough act to follow. Nonetheless, Assassin’s Creed IV seems to have a lot going for it, even if we’re not in love with the (little) we know so far.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is set to be released on October 29th of this year, so we have some time to become impressed. For now, we’ll just wait for another trailer.
If you’re a fan of the Assassin’s Creed series, we’d love to know what you think about the trailers. Sound off in the comments below!
