See an ocelot get messed up in Assassin's Creed 4

Nine minutes of new gameplay in this video preview. 

It's the biggest, busiest Assassin's Creed so far - but after an annual onslaught of games, is anyone really bothered any more? Turns out they are, actually, and Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag's open seas setting is a breath of salty fresh air that gives the series the kick up the behind it really needs.

Ian Higton spent a fair amount of time with Ubisoft's game recently, and came away with many nice things to report back on. There's an abundance of things to do in Black Flag's world, as well as some key learnings from Ubisoft Montreal's other open-world success, the brilliant Far Cry 3. There's also, intriguingly, an in-game feedback system, and more thrillingly aerial ocelot assassinations. Which is great, because I really hate ocelots.
