Assassin's Creed: Black Flag's Swashbuckling Ends With A Sudden Crash

Edward Kenway hacked through buccaneers, survived a 21-gun naval bombardment, and tiptoed through flaming wreckage to get back to his ship and escape pursuit. But, in the end, he was brought down by that most dreaded foe: the crash of a live demo.

The abrupt end to this Assassin's Creed: Black Flag notwithstanding at all, this game looked well deserving of a swashbuckler's reputation. After all, who wouldn't want to play a pirate trained by assassins?


    Felt really bad for the guy playing.

    Game looks pretty great though. Loved the seamless transition from land to naval combat

      Yeah, my heart went out to the Battlefield guy during the Xbox conference as well. The poor guys, standing there looking awkward and there's nothing they can do about it but wait.

    Couldn't think of anything more embarrassing on a stage and the world watching.

    I don't think it was a live demo. Not that I would blame any company for 'lip-synching' to a pre-recorded video, it's not worth the risk.

    That was probably just the Xbone doing its verification thing. ;)
