A pirate without a ship is like a, well, a Dracula without a coffin, or something. A new seven-minute gameplay trailer for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag focuses on how much 'hero' Edward loves his ship, The Jackdaw. He'll be exploring in it, upgrading it, fighting other ships with it, and assaulting naval forts.
You won't get to enjoy multiplayer naval battles, sadly, as Ubisoft has said it "didn't feel we can get it to a good enough level for this iteration." It hasn't entirely ruled adding them in DLC, however.
AC4 comes to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U on October 26, but the PC edition is frustratingly delayed by a few weeks. It's due on Xbox One and PS4 too, whenever they launch.
