Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag trailer reveals gameplay

Juggling two jobs can be difficult for anyone, but Captain Edward Kenway seems to take the responsibilities of both pirate and Assassin in his stride. Ubisoft today dropped a "gameplay reveal" trailer for Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, showing the kind of salty shenanigans players can expect from its latest open-world murder simulator.

While more of an in-game trailer than actual gameplay, it shows some of the locations Eddie will visit, the adventures he'll get up to, and the ways he'll kill men. Check our preview for more on what the actual game's like.

Black Flag is coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U on October 20, with PC and PlayStation 4 editions (and presumably Microsoft's new console too) to follow.

It's never to early to start the pre-order drive through, so Ubisoft today revealed what comes in the Black Island DLC pack included free with GameStop pre-orders. It offers the Black Island treasure-hunting quests, the Black Ship, Captain Morgan's silver flintlock pistols, and multiplayer jazz including old Momo's costume.
