Seven minutes of ‘Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag’ gameplay

No, the actual game will be more than seven minutes long. Don’t get freaked out. The fourth game in the Assassin’s Creed series takes some big steps to move the franchise out of its comfort zone. As privateer Edward Kenway, you spend a lot of time out on the water, manning your pirate ship. Ubisoft just dropped this pretty sweet real-time gameplay video that goes into a lot more detail on how the sailing aspects work in the game’s massive, sprawling open world. With over 50 unique locations to explore, treasure maps, random encounters and more, you’re going to have plenty to do. It looks pretty awesome. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag hits PlayStation 3, Wii U, and Xbox 360 on October 29th.
