New ‘Assassin’s Creed IV’ Trailer Shows Off Naval Combat, Hand-to-Hand Boarding Parties

by Joseph Leray

When we saw “Assassin’s Creed IV” late last week, game director Asraf Ismail mentioned that an early prototype of the naval combat in “Assassin’s Creed III” really cemented his team’s desire to make a pirate-themed game. “When the very first prototype of [’Assassin’s Creed III’]’s naval battles started coming around, and we gaiged all the play-testers’ reactions, we knew we had something in our hands,” he said.

Watching this new trailer, it’s easy to see why.
