Gamescom 2013: Assassin's Creed IV's "Stealth" Trailer Shows Edward Doing What Assassins Do Best

One criticism I have seen lacing the comment sections of numerous Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag videos since its release is the impression that there would not be too much of the classic stealth gameplay that originated in the series’ first installment. Ubisoft may have effectively put that argument to bed in their newest trailer, entitled “Stealth.”

Every person who buys Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag to enact a stealth play-style will be pleased by what they see in this trailer. There is plenty of sneaking, disguises, a leap of faith, and stealth kills to please any fan of the original games in the series. The trailer also serves to accentuate what was shown in a recent gameplay video, which also highlighted stealth elements of the game.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal and will be published by Ubisoft on October 29th, 2013 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC.
