Touchpad optional. Analog sticks can also be used.

In the PlayStation 4 version of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, the touchpad acts as a navigator when viewing the game map.

Clicking the touchpad brings up the map. You can move around by sliding your fingers, zoom in and out by pinching and stretching, and add a custom marker by tapping the touchpad.

Of course, if you’re fond of traditional analog stick map navigation, that’s still there. Touchpad map navigation is optional.

Assassin’s Creed IV will launch with PlayStation 4 on November 15. Current-gen version will be available on October 29, and an Xbox One version on November 22. If you missed it, catch today’s new ‘Pirate Heist’ trailer here.
