One shot kills and open world surfing in Kenway’s Jackdaw make sure that the contrast of intense gameplay and beautified surroundings continue to mesmerize the players but we have not had the chance to see how the game plays out on next generation’s multiplayer mode.
At least for now, and thanks to PlayStation Access folks, we now know how Assassins’ Creed 4: Black Flag looks like on PlayStation 4. A video of little over 11 minutes has surfaced that walks us through the gameplay. So it is a competitive mode right? And it has a touch of the assassins’ legacy that the franchise carries.
The video shows you and your team mates going out to a marketplace to assassinate the members of the Doritocracy. Of course there are assassinations on your side too but that is a part of the play. Since you can kill with one shot that is worth it, the video shows our commentators being killed while demonstrating how the game works.
You get to disguise among the crowds for a certain time which increases with your level, starting from 15-20 seconds and taking time to cool down before you can use it again. This can help you fool your enemies and strike them when they have mistaken you for someone else.
You can lock on your enemies, run after them or play cool and stay guised as one of the ordinary NPCs. What you will need to remember is that there will be foes everywhere so once you break your cover you better run for it before they get back at you.
There is a lot of walking around a lot of guising and jumping the enemies from behind but it is nonetheless impressive. Especially when you can get to the top of the buildings and look over the whole city like you are the master of it.
Well, I’ll leave you to it. The video is posted above, help yourself and let us know what you make of it.
