Oh My God, Look At This Enormous Shark In Assassin's Creed IV

Shark Week is right around the corner, and Los Angeles just finished recovering from the sharknado so, of course, the latest batch of screenshots for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag would feature a couple of big-ass sharks prominently. They're the assassins of the sea, after all.

What you don't see above is the guy is going to one-hit counter kill that shark by holding the trigger and X.

Ubisoft chummed the waters today with eight new images for the game, all of which may be seen below. Caribbean scenes, naval artillery, Conor and a pal playing with — what the hell is that, the Cosmic Cube? — and swordfighting round out the latest look at the Assassin's Creed series' swashbuckling sequel.


    Its actually Edward Kenway, not "Conor"....

    Are there going to be any actual assassinations in the game or will everyone take the ever-so-subtle method of blowing shit up with cannons in between punching sharks on the nose?

      Furthermore, are they going to show any next-gen footage of the game? Because... this can't be it, this can't be what we've been waiting for, right?

      I mean look at their hair in the second last image.

    Most important question regarding those sharks: do we get to jump them on waterskis while wearing a leather jacket?

    I think you mean Edward, not Connor.

    Wer'e gonna need a bigger boat!

      i cant believe that it took 4 posts before yours to say that

    I think at this point we can safely take the 'assassins' part out of the title and replace it with something like 'adventurers' or 'explorers'.

    @instinctivearcher, why? the main story of the game is still going to be you killing people. if you choose to assassinate them or go all out war that is up to the player.. as in all the other assassin creed games.

    You have always been able to pick assassination or chase and kill or head to head combat.. i see no difference in this one.

      Watch this video it will explain my point: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/6516-Assassins-Creed-3

        but that is just another persons opinion on what he things of the game.. (and dont get me wrong every one is allowed to have theirs) im just saying that i disagree.. yeah they added all the other stuff in but you can still sneak around, you can still assassinate people.. stabbing is still in the game.

        but again thats just my view ;)

          It may be his opinion but it is undeniable that assassins creed games have become more about personal stories than anything. I just see the much of AC3 in this game and I hated AC3.

          I saw the gameplay and I'm not sure what to make of it, some things look cool but I get the feeling AC4 will like every AC game except for 1 be way too easy. I also can't help but think those things I liked in it were a bit too scripted.
