Ahoy! The Best Part Of Assassin's Creed III Gets Even Better In ACIV

No matter what you thought about Assassin’s Creed III, most people agreed that the naval combat sequences were the best features of the game. This new gameplay trailer for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag shows the upgrades coming to the ship-sailing experience and how you’ll take Edward Kenway deep into the 17th century Caribbean.

    Well, except for some of those optional objectives in them...

      Like attacking the weak spots of ships that often get destroyed before revealing their weak spots?

        Yep, pretty much. That mission pissed me off so much as the ships kept getting destroyed before I was able to actually reveal the weak spot.

        Or that mission that had you attacking with a fleet of smaller ships and you needed to keep at least 5 of them alive, but they kept sailing in front of you and destroying themselves on your ship.

        Or that mission where the optional objective was to destroy an entire fleet of ships in something like 1:30 (I still think I only managed to eventually achieve that by fluke).

        Some of the optional objectives to achieve 100% sync in the game were pretty tough, but some of the ones in the naval missions in particular were borderline stupid.

      And looking in the top left corner.... Those things are still fucking there...

      Count me as one of those who thought that the naval sequences were the worst part of the game...

    This game looks fantastic, always wanted a pirate simulator

    I'm on the fence with this one.. I played Assassins Creed 1, 2, Brotherhood & half of Revelations, but then just got really bored of it. I didn't bother picking up Assassins Creed 3 and felt like I didn't really miss much from the average reviews.

    I do like the direction Assassins Creed 4 is going though and it does sound awesome to play as a pirate. I will probably wait til the reviews start coming in. One thing that bored me with the series is the history and how it uses characters from the past and real life locations. Don't get me wrong, it is interesting at first, but after a while I just get bored (never got into History). This looks to have changed a bit with Assassins Creed 4.

    There was a best part of AC3? Must have missed it.

      Agreed AC3 was the worst in the series

      A) they took away the armour upgrades
      B) too much American history which I had no clue about (I'm not American)
      C) Connor whinged like a little girl the whole way through, he had no other emotion apart from anger
      D) Only time I really enjoyed it was when I was playing as kenway as he seemed to have an actual personality

      Just an opinion though, all my hopes are on AC4
