A new developer diary walkthrough from developers of Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag showcases the open-world gameplay of the upcoming open-sea stealth adventure.
The game is the biggest to date for the developers, with over 50 major locations and over 75 uncharted islands, all of which can be explored.
In the video, you will see the pirate village in the Coconut Island. According to game director Ashraf Ismail, you can gain valuable information from sources like these, though it does come with a price--proving that you are worth it with your fists.
One thing to remember when you're trying to gauge if Assassin's Creed 4 is worth your kind of game: exploration is matched by movement, be it free running or free swimming, as the Black Flag takes on adventure on both terrains.
In the video, you can see the free roaming mode instead of a mission, so you can do whatever you want. There is much to explore in this city, and you can see a myriad of those in the free roaming mode.
The video also shows you the start of Aiden Pearce's mission of looking for the CTOS server, which holds the power to the hacking. What is interesting in the video is that the developers have ensured that the hacking can be done depending on the player's gaming style--be it aggressive, stealth, or passive.
Watch Dogs will be available on November 22 for current and next-gen consoles, the PC and the Wii U.

The latest trailer revealed at Gamescom for DriveClub is shown below and showcased at 1080p, though don't expect too much with the quality of YouTube.
