    I’m a big ubisoft supporter, and this games looks good. But Watch Dogs comes out less than a month later, and since money doesn’t grow on trees. I’ll be waiting for a price cut on this one.

  • starwars360

    I will buy Splinter Cell: Blacklist for Xbox 360 and Watch Dogs and AC IV for Xbox One as well Rayman Legends on Wii U. :).

    • The Clockwork Being

      Why buy Splinter Cell on Xbox 360 when the Wii U version will probably be the better version.

    • 00EpicGamer00

      Why not get all 3 games on Wii U? Splinter Cell, Watch Dogs, and Assassin’s Creed will be on the Wii U. What would even be the point of getting just Rayman on Wii U? Why not get that game on Xbox as well? Why are you buying the Xbox one!? I guess if that’s REALLY what you want, but…..well…..I hope you’re really, really rich. And like having a brick for a console, that spies on you 24/7….and listens to every word you say…..

      • starwars360

        Hehehe I am gamer who enjoy gaming in my life and been gaming around since short time on Nintendo console then I became super gamer who spent games so much time from Super Nintendo until now. I am 28 yrs old and still love games. I am huge fans of Nintendo and Microsoft consoles as well I loved Sony consoles. But I more into Wii U and Xbox 360 at moment. Because I made lots of friends over Xbox Live and some of them and I loved spent play coop, multiplayer and earn achievements together. Loved earn lots of achievements in my Xbox Live gamerscore and I am huge fans of single-player. Wii U I just getting exclusive titles on it same for PS3 but I more loved Wii U then PS3.

        My favourite consoles in my life is Nintendo 64,GameCube, PS2, Xbox 360 and Wii U. Those best in my opinion.

        Love being gamer entire my life. Never stop. Support Nintendo and Microsoft as well some of Sony that how I loved their consoles and games.

        My favourite publisher and developer in world is Nintendo, Rockstar Games and Ubisoft. :)

        Just like explain how much I loved about games.

        Best games of all time in my heart is Super Mario Galaxy and Fallout 3.

        • 00EpicGamer00

          I didn’t need a whole life story. You still never answered my questions….

          Look, you really need to stay away from Xbox one though, I’m just making sure you REALLY wanna go through all the crap ton of problems the Xbone’s got. You do realize that most of the die-hard Microsoft fans, aren’t getting the Xbox one, right? After it’s announcement they’ve moved on to Sony and Nintendo, and I suggest you do the same.

          If you’re really a “Microsoft fan”, than just keep your Xbox 360. There’s no point in upgrading.

          • starwars360

            Lol I did understand but it is entire my choice. I keep Xbox 360 and still get Xbox One. I want to since I loved Forza and Dead Rising too and want to play those on Xbox One as well there rumour about new Banjo-Kazooie might making on way to Xbox One that show leaked billboard. Microsoft not want answer yet if leaked is real or fake. Plus lots of my friends and some best friends play Xbox 360 and some will get Xbox One. So we will play together into coop, boost achievements as well multiplayer etc…. over Xbox Live.

            Anyway don’t worry I am still support Nintendo. Never stop.

            Cannot wait for SSB, MK 8, X and Bayonetta 2 in 2014. Wii U going large epic in 2014. :)

          • 00EpicGamer00

            First of all, that banjo kazooie thing, it’s full name was “Banjo Kazooie grunty Land” it’s probably just going to be a party game like Nintendoland, just with banjo slapped on it, and they’ll probably make a mockery of Banjo again.
            Second of all, how many of your friend are getting the Xbox one? Like 2, 3?
            Third of all, there’s no point in getting a Xbox one, if you have an Xbox 360, you already have a Xbone, just allot better. Oh, and how old are you? Just saying that probably your parent aren’t going to let you have an “Xbox one” once they figure out how expensive it is. And I’m not talking about JUST the price of the console either, all the extra stuff you HAVE to pay for. Your parents are NOT going to let you have this thing, unless you’re from a VERY rich family.

          • Dr.device

            Why don’t you leave this guy alone and respect his decision to buy the Xbox one. I’m sure he has done his research and believes that the Xbox one is a noteworthy console why does it matter too you? You’re no better than a Microsoft employee trying to sway people from buying a wiiu.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            I’m just making sure this person knows what he’s doing. But, judging by his spelling and grammar, it seems like he’s a kid, like 10 years old. And I don’t know if he even researched anything about the Xbox one. To me, it sounds like he didn’t do any research and he’s just getting an Xbox one just because it’s made by Microsoft. If what he truly wants is an Xbox one than fine, i’m just making sure he knows what to expect if he gets one.
            And i’m not trying to sway him to buy a Wii U. I wouldn’t care if he only bought a PS4. I just know from all the things Microsoft has said about the Xbox one, it’s really just a stupid idea “oh, let’s watch TV, on our TV, that already has TV on it!”

          • Dr.device

            Hold on, I believe I said FROM buying a wii u. Just retread that slowly and maybe you will understand what I was saying. Another thing, can you tell me what exactly he should expect when buying an xbox one? I’d love to hear what you’ve forced yourself to believe. Lol

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Okay, then?…”retread”? This outta be fun :)
            First issue is that it’s $500. (In case you didn’t know, in America, the Economy is terrible right now. So, i’m pretty sure people are going to go more towards a 300/350 or 400 dollar console rather a 500 one.)

            Second issue is that the Xbox one NEEDS to be connected to the internet every 24 hours. Not everybody in the entire world has internet connection, even if they do they do have internet connection, who says that they have perfect 100% fast internet? What if their internet turns on and off, because it IS so slow? What would happen if there’s a power outage, a hurricane, some kind of storm that made them lose their power for MORE than 24 hours? Would the Xbox one immediately just break and not work anymore? And you have to pay for online, which will probably be $50.

            Third issue, has a creepy camera that spies on you 24/7 and listens to every word you say. This is, for one thing, going against the law/human right of “privacy” and if people figure out how to hack into the Xbox one, guess who’s going to be watching and listening to you?

            Fourth issue, you have to pay a fee for used or borrowed games.

            Fifth issue, doesn’t support backwards compatibility.

            Sixth issue, doesn’t support Indie games.

            Seventh issue, the name. If you think people were confused with the name “Wii U” than people are surely going to be majorly confused with “Xbox one”. If I had to choose the name, I think Xbox 720 would be better, and it sounds cooler. But hey, this is Microsoft we’re talking about. They’re not really the company known for “thinking big”.

            Eighth issue, includes a Kinect in every box. Not everyone wants Kinect.

            Ninth issue, the actual design of the console, it’s so ugly >.< looks like a VCR and the original Xbox glued together.

            Tenth issue, the whole TV thing is a very stupid feature. What would be the point on watching TV, on your TV, that already has TV on it?

            Eleventh issue, doesn't have much exclusives, almost any game for Xbox one will be for other consoles as well. Like for example, Call of duty: Ghosts, was announced at their E3, but it's been announced for all consoles, including Wii U.

            …..Anything else I forgot? By the way all this information is confirmed, besides the opinion ones. And I did not "force myself to believe it". Since it's been confirmed by Microsoft themselves.

          • Dr.device

            2 and 4 are apart of the DRM policy, which if you didn’t live under a rock would know was taken back. 9 10 and 7 are opinions that were obviously conjured up by a 7 year old fan boy.3 is what you want to believe, you WANT to believe that it’s spying on you, all it’s listening for are the words “Xbox on” if you truly believe that it’s spying on you than you need to gtfo. 1 is irrelevant. 6 I’d love to see a source ; } and 11… are you kidding me? If you really think that the Xbox one is shy on exclusives you should stop talking to me an go do your reasearch because you obviously dont know what you’re talking about.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Umm, I do know what I was talking about, you’re just all butthurt cause I made fun of your “perfect console”.

            Microsoft CONFIRMED that they watch you 24/7. And once again, when someone figures out how to hack into the Xbox one, you’re going to have random people from all over the world watching your every move. http://dailycaller.com/2013/06/07/new-xbox-by-nsa-partner-microsoft-will-watch-you-247/ (Here’s a source) Date: 6/7/13

            You’re not a very matured individual, are you? Issues 9, 10, and 7 (can’t count in order, can you?) are all fine to say. Because #7 IS true, you can’t say that the name “Xbox one” is just amazingly epic. It’s terrible, people are going to be confused. And like I said, Xbox 720 would of been a MUCH better idea. But this IS Microsoft. #9 issue, is somewhat true, the thing is ugly as sh*t. Oh but you probably thing it’s just so beautiful, if you think that piece of crap is “beautiful”, than you don’t know what the term “beautiful” means. #10 issue, once again, it’s true, it’s a very stupid idea, because there’s no point. Nobody is going to use that feature because once again, there’s no point.

            “6 I’d love to see a source” okay :) http://bgr.com/2013/06/17/microsoft-xbox-one-indie-games-policy-criticism/
            Though the Xbox one CAN have indie games, there won’t be many (like Oddworld.) By the way, the article was posted Jun 17, 2013. In case you’d try to use that against me.

            “and 11… are you kidding me?” Nope: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/5-xbox-one-exclusive-titles-to-make-ps4-owners-jealous/ Wow….5 exclusives….I just, wow, that’s SO many games, I think i’m going to have a heart attack (sarcasm.) Date of article: July 3, 2013. Even The Wii U has more exclusives than this. And it hasn’t even been out a year yet.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Yo, buddy. I can’t respond to your latest response, because it’s put on moderation.

          • Dr.device

            Darn, oh well. I guess we should just respect each others opinions. But just saying your link for the exclusives is a top 5 link. I think the Xbox one has around 15 exclusives thus far… Anyways, I am not a Microsoft fanboy FYI, it’s just I don’t appreciate when people knock a console before its even released. That’s all.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Umm….okay….that went better than I expected.

      • starwars360

        No matter what you and me or other who own consoles and games as long as we are SUPER GAMER and love gaming. Important for gamers. Not arguement over which win console wars or game wars. Most important is our opinion, what we play and what we own consoles and games etc… :D

        Plus we stick to lovable Nintendo anyway that is good thing. :)

  • Jon Turner

    I like that they’re marketing the WiiU version along this.

  • Michael Jurado

    PIRATES SINGING!!!!! i’m sold that’s all this game was missing and not only did they include it. But, they nailed it ^__^ i’m officially crazy for AC4

  • Jon

    I want :D

  • The Clockwork Being

    GUYS LETS SUPPORT THIS GAME. UBisoft has me sold on Watch Dogs, Splinter Cell and AC4

    Oh yeah the song is Sand of Time by Audiomachine. The one at the beginning and the end

    • Zombie Boy

      Getting this game for sure, Ubisoft or not! Open world on the Wii U? Yes please…

      • Mario

        Dude, your profile picture scares me. It”s cool. But scary.

        • Zombie Boy

          The bit in ZombiU when it popped up scared me too, in all fairness.

    • discuss

      Indeed Ubi brings more quality games to the Wii U then Nintendo themselves!

      • Relick

        Haha funny joke.

        Still, AC4 looks flipping awesome (although I am a sucka for pirate games).

  • TULFich

    Hope in some near future they make a Mexican-scene Assasin´s creed now that we are talking about americas and caribean games :D

    • Ducked

      Why not Canada? We could slash people open with hockey sticks!

      • TULFich

        I don´t know anything about canada´s history, so I can´t debate….

        • Ducked

          I know very little, but I just suggested it out the top of my head as a joke. lol

          • TULFich

            yeah I could see that, I was just curious about canada´s history, though I might never step on that country XD

          • Ducked

            Oh it’s a great country, probably better then america. But I agree with you on the mexico one in all seriousness it be pretty cool. Although I’d love to see one in China or Japan.

          • TULFich

            U know America is our continent not a country, right? I´m from Mexico and yeah I can almost say lots of other countries are culturaly better than USA, but things are made (or sell) in USA.
            But yeah I always thought about a chinese or japanese AC, cuz they got like a fuck-ton of historical events that fit into the series and they can attract more audience into it

          • Ducked

            Sorry I prefer using america over us sometimes. I think doing a japanese one would boost up sales for the game in Japan, because well the game would be set in japan lol. But yeah the rich history they have would work great.

    • AlexG

      Example: Spanish conquest or Revolution… Drug Cartel?

      • TULFich

        not conquest but independence, or even the french invasion, or even the alamo as DLC lol….and no, no drug cartels…is not GR:AW or Army of two.

        • AlexG

          i know, there is a lot of history to take.
          Drug cartel was a joke XD

  • discuss

    This game has the best trailers I’ve ever seen. I must resist the urge to pre-order evertime I see it.

  • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

    The trailer looks darn sweetness, good job Ubisoft, that’s a trailer that does hype one up for a game.

  • ItzameyaToad

    I hope that this AC is more open to people new to the AC games. I don’t mind it referencing some thing’s from past games or tying loose ends but I don’t want to be completely lost because I havn’t played the previous games. Only AC game I have played a little is AC 3, and judging from that game this one looks to be just as good if not better!

  • companyoflosers

    idk why but for some reason every pirate sequence feels incomplete without jack sparrow music XD

    • Mario

      He’s a fictional character genius! And I doubt they have rights to the musics of the movies.

      • companyoflosers

        wont stop me from playing the song in my head any time theres any action! maybe ill turn off music in settings and just play the music over top whenever i start fighting XD

        • Mario

          Right…

  • Akatosh

    Hopefully it’s not as bug filled as AC3. Had to trade it in for another game because it kept freezing on me.

    Anyways, it seems like all the games I want are coming out in October! Wind Waker HD, AC4, Sonic Lost World, and Pokémon X. With the exception of Pikmin 3 that’s pretty much all on my want list! In one month!

    Quite an improvement dare I say…

    Excluding games I want next year of course. ^^

    • kenny Johnson

      I haven’t had any freeze ups yet. I’m about half-way through. When did you experience the freezing? Hopefully yours was just a lemon.

      • 00EpicGamer00

        I’ve experienced freezing…and quite a few glitches here and there. The freezing always happens if I play the game for too long…like for 8 or 12 hours. If I play it that long or longer, the game will start slowing down, and it’ll eventually freeze.
        Now, as for the glitches…I particularly don’t mind glitches, I think they’re cool, and sometimes funny when you find one. Like, the mission where you have to go to an empty church in the woods, you officially meet your dad for the first time. I was on this horse, and I forced it to go inside the church (there’s usually an invisible wall when you bring your horse up, I guess I somehow broke through it.)

        • kenny Johnson

          That might explain my lack of freeze-ups. I’ve never played it for more than 2-3 hours in one sitting.

        • camshurb

          spoiler….damn :(

          • 00EpicGamer00

            ….how is that a spoiler? It’s pretty obvious that you’d get to meet your dad in the game. And besides, I didn’t spoil anything, I just tried to describe what I was talking about. Spoiling something would be like: “dat thing over there be da final boss, and dis is how to defeat it!”
            And i’m pretty sure you’ve beaten the game too, so what’s your point? -.-

          • camshurb

            just got my son a wii u and got the game, so no I haven’t beaten it…anyway no worries I just know that when go to the empty church in the woods I will meet my dad.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Well, uhh…..sorry I guess. It’s just, this game is like a year old, I expected everyone would of played this game by now. Whether they played it on the Wii U or not.
            Think of it as a fact instead of a spoiler, since I didn’t really reveal anything about the main story, or spoiled any major events in the game. Just think about it as a fun-fact.

          • camshurb

            I really should have played it I guess (considering I have a 360), but I think having a Nintendo console again has really made me enjoy gaming once again because my son can actually play most of the games with me and they are fun games. I think the only game I bought for myself on 360 in the last year is Bioshock In. We have been scooping up everything on the wii u because the game pad kicks a$$

          • 00EpicGamer00

            The Gamepad is just awesome! I’m glad you’re enjoying your Wii U :)

      • Akatosh

        All the time practically, and I hear many others have experienced the problem too, though it hasn’t been as bad with more and more updates.

  • Justis Bistawros

    Let us all wait for assassin’s creed 4 black flag together the wii u community until this game gets its release on wii u when it does we will all become pirates together.

  • Nintendofan

    I can hardly for to see this game in action. Skipped AC3, but i look forward to play this on my wii u. I expect it to be better looking than current gen consoles, and similar to the ps4 and Xb1 version. With the added gamepad features it’s a nobrainer which version will sell the most copies. This is what we all have been waiting for :D

  • Madmagican

    I just hope it’s more polished than AC3 was and has solid gameplay

  • Michael Ocampo

    I’m just at a lost here you guys, should I get this or Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate? I would really appreciate your guy’s feedback on this.

    • 00EpicGamer00

      I think you should get this. But it depends on your personal preference. Have you played a Monster hunter game before?

      • Michael Ocampo

        Yeah and I’ve played both ultimate and ac 3 but I can’t decide so I’m looking for the one that has the most content at this point.

        • 00EpicGamer00

          Oh okay, umm….I suggest you do some research, cause once again, it depends on your personal preference. I honestly think you should get AC4, but it’s all up to you.

          • Michael Ocampo

            Oh ok thanks for the help I’ll be looking forward to picking up ac4 when it comes out :)

  • Linskarmo

    Looks a bit like Pirates of the Caribbean. :D

    • Mario

      All these things are inspired by the Golden age of piracy. I think it’s obvious why they resemble a lot.

  • Dr.device

    This game really doesn’t seem like it’ll be all that great. They should really quit while they are ahead, the AC franchise is a real interesting and fun franchise however I think they’re overdoing it. This is the 5th or 6th AC I believe..? It’s a bit much, the story shouldn’t have taken this long to have reached a resolution. I want to support ubisoft’s wii u title so that they see people appreciate their games HOWEVER I refuse to buy a game I feel is overdone and dragged out.

    • 00EpicGamer00

      *Ahem* Ubisoft said they’ll continue to make Assassin’s Creed games, as long as it sells well. Just because you’re tired of it doesn’t mean everyone else is.
      In fact, Ubisoft has said that they won’t make games that they can’t make franchises out of, so, yep Watch Dogs will be a franchise if it sells well.

      • Dr.device

        I know that not everyone is tired of it, I never said that they were. And yea ubisoft’s will continue to make AC games the franchise is their cow.

  • commonsense boy

    if wiiu graphics il consider / if wiiu optermized il consider if not i wont THat simple !!!!

    GAMEPAD IS A SHIP NAVAL BATTLE TOOL >>>>ISNT IT UBISOFT <<<< OR I DONT BUY

    another example of gaming that with wii remote and nunchuck and gamepad it could be massivly better YET THE INDUSTRY STILL BUILDS AS IF ITS PS2 ERA

    im sick of this OBSOLETE SHIT industry grow some balls earn some respect and get up to date with controls and interaction and gameplay JESUS

  • commonsense boy

    if it runs like crap like the last one i wont buy SUPPORT THE INDUSTRY IS IDIOT TALK

    i buy high quality goods ONLY

  • uPadWatcher

    Argh! Me want this game on the U, matey!

  • Razo_E

    Hopefully it doesn’t suck like AC III on the Wii U. I can’t believe I bought that crap-ola. I just downloaded AC II as part of Free for gold on XBOX 360, i’ll fire it up today and see if the 3rd was just a fluke.

  • fireheartis1

    Dang it man I wont be able to pick this game up right away. I have to classes to pay off before I can buy any games in November. I will for sure pick it up brand new though. I’m going to support Ubisoft since they haven’t skipped out on us like sucky EA.

  • JG

    I’ve only just gotten back to playing #3 after not touching it for months.
