Ubisoft released a new walk-through for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag on Thursday. The 10-minute video gives gamers a glimpse at the varied activities available in the open-world Caribbean that's a major part of the upcoming PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC title.
The walk-through is narrated by game director Ashraf Ismail and shows the player taking Edward Kenway through various locations and activities that will be available in Assassin's Creed IV. This includes a pirate island shanty town where Kenway will have to fight before he can gain the respect to recruit crew members. There's also underwater treasure hunting made possible by a diving bell, a smuggler's cave, an encounter with a pirate hunter ship that tries to take out Kenway's Blackdaw by ramming it and a harpooning trip to hunt down a bull shark.
The game will be released Oct. 29 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U. The PS4 version will be released on Nov. 15 followed by the Xbox One version on Nov. 22. A PC version will be available by the end of the year.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag tells the story of Edward Kenway, who falls from privateering for the Royal Navy into piracy as the war between the major Empires comes to an end.

Set at the dawn of the 18th Century, the game features some of the most infamous pirates in history, such as Blackbeard and Charles Vane, and takes players on a journey throughout the West Indies during a turbulent and violent period of time later to become known as the Golden Age of Pirates
