Earlier today, Ubisoft unveiled the first gameplay trailer for Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag. The ship missions in Assassin's Creed 3 were, arguably, the best thing about the game, and it's hard not to get excited when watching protagonist Edward Kenway punch a shark during a clip taken from the upcoming game's underwater environment.

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag is pipped for release on 1st November 2013.
