Do not get your hopes up, this is more of an indirect trailer for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Pre-ordering the game entitles gamers to an app called “The Watch,” which will grant access to Assassin’s Creed IV-related content.
The trailer demonstrate’s The Watch’s ability to cultivate news from different outlets – including the studio – regarding Assassin’s Creed IV. People who utilize the app will be able to read the latest news, watch trailers, and view fan art. There are also challenges, quizzes, contests, and riddles related to the entire Assassin’s Creed universe. As this is a UK trailer, there is no word as to which American retailers will offer the app as a pre-order incentive.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is being developed primarily by Ubisoft Montreal and will be published by Ubisoft for the PlayStation 4, XBOX (because who are we kidding?), PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii U in late October of this year.
