After seeing the AC: black flag trailer, i coudnt help noticing the scene where edward dives underwater. it seems like a sensible thing to do, as most of the game will take place on the sea. in one screenshot i also saw whales. id like to see everybodys opinion in this.(Hazem kenway (talk) 12:07, March 3, 2013 (UTC))
Maybe we can now, remember the possibilites are endless with the AnvilNext engine (they might use it again with AC IV Black Flag). We might even see the Kraken! OR JACK SPARROW! RogwelTarune (talk) 12:47, March 3, 2013 (UTC)
I'm predicting that there are gonna be tons of references to PIrate novels, movies, stories, etc. Like Moby Dick, Treasure Isalnd, The Pirate King, that song "You are a Pirate," THE LIST GOES ON XD
There's already references in AC3: Faulkner is played and modeled by the same guy with the same job (orders in the ship, I guess) in the Pirates of the Caribbean.22.214.171.124 15:51, March 3, 2013 (UTC)
Here is something I stole form the Italian FB Group page that may peak some interest:
Given the fact that the character who talks about Edward Kenway in the trailer is Blackbeard, here is a list from Wikipedia, of characters who, given the times that we are supplied by official news, we could meet:
-Edward Teach, better known as Blackbeard (ca. 1679 – November 22, 1718)
-Alexander Selkirk, born Alexander Selcraig (1676 – Lower Largo, Atlantic Ocean, December 13, 1721)-Charles Vane (1680 – Port Royal, March 29, 1720) was an English pirate (note that dies in port royal)
-Edward Low (England, 1690 – Martinique, 1724)-Emanuel Wynne (1650 – France, Caribbean, approximately 1700) was a French pirate (maybe at the beginning of the game, who knows)
-John Quelch (London, 1666 – Boston, June 30, 1704) was an English pirate.
-John Rackham (Bristol, December 21, 1682 – Santiago de la Vega, November 17, 1720)
-Richard Worley (England, ... – North Carolina, February 17, 1719) was an English pirate.
-Stede Bonnet (Barbados, 1688 – Charleston, December 10, 1718) was a Barbadian pirate (also dealt with Blackbeard)
-Samuel Bellamy nicknamed "Black Sam" Bellamy (Hittisleigh, Wellfleet, February 23, 1689 – April 27, 1717) was a British pirate.
-Mary Read (Plymouth, 1690 – Jamaica, April 8, 1721) was a British pirate.
As you can see, all of them dying between 1700 and 1725. So with the times we, and most likely the game will have a maximum period of time that will go from 1710 to 1721. What about: the material, or rather, there are pirates, but see what we offer developers this time!

WAIT.... there was a REAL pirate with the name Samuel BELLAMY.....as in Paul Bellamy (read: The Fall).... if they don't connect these guy together and say they're related, I give up.20:03, March 3, 2013 (UTC)188.8.131.52
Swimming underwater and stuff is cool and all, but, honestly, I find myself more intrigued by the dual swords. I wonder if the combat will change in this game, or if Ubisoft just keeps AC3's dual-handed combat. ZBlue0 (talk) 02:22, March 4, 2013 (UTC)
No gameplay is splitted 60-40/land-naval, new hunting options i guess with the sealife
what i like for now:
i love the idea of 2 swords and 4 guns, hope it will be well developed,
Edward has blond hair nice for a change :P
a Pirate becoming an Assassin, guy who dont care who he kills becomes a guy.. you get where i go with this(interesting to me is.. If he is not our ancestor, will we be desync if we kill too many civs?)
it was said that Ubi are going back to the roots of AC with assassinating missions.. simple task.. achieve goal by any means.. i hope there will be no more stupid additional conditions which are additional but needed for 100% completion of the game,
there will be few islands that we can pop off to for a small killing spree or on hunting season if u get my gist:P
