As we told you at the end of last week, Assassin’s Creed 4 has already been confirmed by Ubisoft. A full reveal is expected to go live at some point on Monday, but we can tell you that a next-gen trailer for the game has already been leaked – and it’s pretty amazing. If you are looking for some early Assassin’s Creed IV footage to satisfy your hunger, this is surely it.
To repeat, the upcoming game is on the way to current-gen consoles, as well as next gen. This now seems to be a trend, with the likes of Watch Dogs also releasing on both generations, as well as Diablo 3 as confirmed by Blizzard at Sony’s February press conference.
It means that everyone will now get to experience the next entry of Assassin’s Creed regardless of whether you are switching over to next-gen hardware or not, with even the Nintendo Wii U getting a version as well after a successful Assassin’s Creed 3 release. This trailer that we’re about to show you should be going live on Monday, and it also re-confirms the October 29th release date that we revealed last week as well.
Considering that Sony has yet to give an official launch date for the PS4, could it possible that Ubisoft has spilled the release date with their Assassin’s Creed 4 tease? Having the new game as a launch title on PS4 would be a very logical move and October 29 just about falls into Sony’s Holiday 2013 release date schedule – just something to bear in mind.
We are not going to embed it here yet for obvious reasons, but you can watch the next-gen Assassin’s Creed 4 trailer here early. Let the video buffer for a while, sit back and enjoy this lovely glimpse into the future. After watching, let us know your impressions of the graphics on offer – is this truly next-gen we are looking at here?
