Assassin's Creed IV

A new leak has shown the world the next installment in the Assassin's Creed series, playing out in the eyes of the fearsome Blackbeard the pirate, a narrative is given describing the terror that is known as Edward Kenway, and as you can probably guess, Edward is the main protagonist of Assassin's Creed IV: The Black Flag.

The trailer shows some pretty actions scenes on-board two sail ships side-by-side, and a few other combat scenes we've expected from Assassin's Creed, but what hit me the most was the unbelievable graphics quality of the trailer.

Obviously the trailer doesn't represent real game footage, but just for CGI in general, it looked absolutely stunning, and was not far off from real life imagery.

At the end of the trailer it says that the game is available for pre-order now, but obviously as the trailer was leaked, the game is not yet available for pre-order. So for this reason we don't know whether the game will be released for current generation consoles or next gen.

Judging by the graphics though, I'd say the game will be released on the PS4 and the next Xbox, which would explain why a fully complete trailer hasn't yet been made officially available to the public. Ubisoft are most likely waiting for Sony and Microsoft to release their consoles, and will then throw out their game to the masses fairly early in the next gen's life span.
