Explore the depths of the ocean floor.

First footage of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag‘s underwater and shark harpooning gameplay have come out new previews from Rev3 Games and Eurogamer.

According to senior game designer Michael Hampton, underwater gameplay turns the tides on the player in that they’re the prey in an environment where they’re powerless. You’ll have to look out for sharks, eels, jellyfish, sea urchins, and sea currents as you explore. Of course, there weren’t oxygen masks during the Golden Age of Pirates, but the game provides a “fully generous spec meter” that allows players to explore “for quite a while” before running out of air. Oxygen sources such as “air pockets” and “special tools calls air barrels” can be found underwater.

    wow, this is realy looking good, I mean, after AC3 I know the marketing team at ubistoft is reeeeaaaly good at making the game look so much better than it actualy is, but this is actualy looking awesome!
    It would be totally awesome if there were some cool rpg-pirate-game elements in there, like ship mutiny, voyage supplies and stuff

    Having in mind how we are attached to water and the meaning itself and how the idea of water network , can deffer no one could make the decisions of today when it comes to a thing like that and to be honest no one wants to make a differend approach when they are faced like that. And even the WR and confirmedi it.
