"What shall we do today, Black Beard?"

Ever since the original Assassin’s Creed got hammered for lacking variety, Ubisoft has been working hard to ensure that the series is packed with plenty of things to do. That appears to be reaching a climax in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, as this ten minute video demonstrates just a handful of the activities that you can experience in the game.

Piratical pastimes include drinking grog, looting caves, and deep sea diving. Everything that you do has a consequence, with cash accrued, upgrades unlocked, and supplies replenished. It really is impressive just how much the publisher’s packing into the game – but we suppose that if you have thousands of employees working on each instalment, it sort of makes sense.
