For those looking to take to the high seas this October with Edward Kenway, Ubisoft has just released a brand new trailer for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, this time focusing on the multiplayer mode for the game. The hunt or be hunted mentality of the game is back and you’ll need to do everything in your power to keep your target in sight while avoiding being hunted on your own.

The game will release on October 29th for Wii U.

    The more fans that buy games like this, the more third party the Wii U will get in the long run. The game certainly looks good.

  • SonicLucario

    Yea this game is gonna be fun, Im gonna get it for x-mas though because theres so many games coming out around that time

  • Keyser

    I have to say I was unimpressed with AC3, but the more I see of this game, the more inclined I am to give Ubisoft another chance, especially with the excellent support they’ve been giving the wii u. Looking forward to Watch Dogs as well!

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      I actually enjoyed AC3. I never actually touched the multiplayer as I’ve always felt that the game is better as single player, but that’s just me.

      • in all my games i play the single player first and after finish the the game i go online.

  • gtosheex

    Whenever i saw the word “multiplayer” in the title i immediately assumed the wii u is losing that feature in a game again. Sad that it has come to that =[

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      I don’t think that’s the case right now. Don’t jinx it.

    • ItzameyaToad

      I wouldn’t assume that. As far as I know AC3 on Wii U has multiplayer so there is a very good chance it will have it for the Wii U version.

      • Derk

        Yes, AC3 on Wii U has online play / leaderboard that nobody usually plays and AC4 will have the same features.

        • Jon

          There is not many people that play AC3 on any multiplayer, I am pretty sure it is because well…. it’s gotten old now and with the Wii U, it is a port of an old game

          • i play mass effect 3 (old game) and i found some people playing the game.

      • David John Gifford

        1 player offline 2-8 online

    • Henry Hotspur

      LMAO same here.

  • I got this preordered since July

  • Marcus Navarro

    A Wii U game with multiplayer? WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU, UBISOFT?!?!?!? You know Nintendo gamers don’t do multiplayer! Dumbasses…

    Edit: I guess some people don’t like satire. I’ll be gentle when I hand over the lollipop from now on…

    • Clel

      Eh, screw the haters.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Satire is wrong of you. You should be ashamed of yourself! We dont want sarcastic trolls here!

      • Marcus Navarro

        Tired of people wailing on the zombie equine too, Magnus? I guess people are too itchy to bury their spurs into something.

  • Jeffery02

    So since this is Ubisoft, that means that the Wii U is ACTUALLY going to have the full experience this time unlike in Injustice and Arkham Origins, right?

  • Kevin Sepulveda

    WELL WELL WELL this has caught my attention now.

  • Ducked

    Multiplayer looks legit, not one of the games I’ll be buying at day one, but I’ll be checking into this.

  • Antar Rodríguez

    ac multiplayer has never attracted me, who knows maybe ill give it a shot this time

  • Miguel Angel Barrueta Hernánde

    already preordered!

  • AAAkabob

    I don’t trust Ubisoft with online multiplayer anymore after Splinter Cell still being broken after 3 weeks of release. I will keep an eye on what Miiverse says before I purchase.

    • you mean, after one single game?

      • AAAkabob

        This and Assassin’s creed was never patched so 0/2 is pretty bad if you ask me. Also this reminds me alot of the Splinter Cell online, just with less sneakiness

    • so dont buy xbox one…. you know, the red ring…

  • Ganjabriel Del Campo

    Nintendo should have a soccer game ☺

    • bizzy gie

      They have a Mario soccer game.

      • i like that game, but they need a real soccer game.

        • CEObrainz

          Tell EA to stop bitching and maybe we’ll get one.

          • true history

          • MetroidZero

            Hopefully under their new CEO, EA will start looking at Nintendo instead of looking away from them.

  • Zuxs13

    Has there been a single Wii U video of this game? Or an Wii U specific features shown off in a Video yet? They made such an effort to show off the differences for splinter cell but I have yet to see any video that does for ACIV.

    • Nintenjoe82

      Nintendo will be saving all these mysterious 3rd party games for a big Nintendo Direct I’m sure.

  • Jim

    So will AC4 have better graphics on the One and PS4 than it will on the WiiU?
    I’m kind of assuming not. Would be awesome to have an answer before ordering.

    • it will have a good graphic no matter what.

    • 00EpicGamer00

      Maybe slightly, but for the most part it will be the same for all consoles.

  • I’ll have to look the video shortly but nonetheless we once again get the definitive version… …not, nor does Xbox this time around though PS3 version and later on PS4 version contain over an hour of extra gameplay which both WiiU and Xbox miss out on, so sad.

    One of the decisions which make me dislike Ubisoft in a way(even with their continued support of WiiU), first the delay on Rayman Legends which they made up for really well, by bringing all their new games this year to WiiU as well and polish rayman greatly whith that they earn my respect, but then on ACIV Nintendo and Xbox get the “incomplete” game…
    Why adding over an hour of extra gameplay to PS version, how much did they get paid by Sony? With that they lose some of my respect again, it’s a shame.

  • Joie Liba

    Yay a multiplayer with 5 players on at any given time, just like the dead AC3 wii u multiplayer.

  • Møhåmmęd Jårmøn

    AC4 multiplayer should have a fleet game mode. With like teams of 3-5 ships and it’s a naval battle. That would be amazing!

    • darkcreap

      Absolutely!! I really enjoyed AC3 naval missions. Only issue is that a multiplayer game like that would be more an strategy game than anything, but I would love that too. Actually, I would love a game based on the AC naval combat mechanics even if it has nothing to do with assassination.

    Best Buy North America is having a pretty good sale on Wii U games. $11.99 for Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper, Mass Effect 3, Funky Barn, Game Party Champions, Madden NFL 2013, and Ben 10: Omniverse. $19.99 for ZombiU, Call of Duty Black Ops II, Assassins Creed III, NBA 2K13, and Rapala Bass Fishing.

    • Edward

      Also Resident Evil Revelations for $29.99

  • FredMirotic

    A game with Assassin Pirates, and no ship multiplayer? That would have been awesome, make it similar to Wings of Icarus, oh yes.

  • 00EpicGamer00

    I don’t really care much for multiplayer in an Assassin’s Creed game, but I’m glad Ubisoft is at least keeping it in for people that do use the multiplayer….unlike a certain Batman game 😛

    I swear, I think Ubisoft has been the strongest supporter for Wii U.

  • fireheartis1

    The main thing I didn’t like about AC3’s multiplayer is that it was confusing on who the target was most of the time. Hopefully Ubisoft fixes that in AC4.
