He’s a pirate!
At E3 this year Sony debuted Assassins Creed 3′s Naval Warfare gameplay at their press conference, whereas Ubsoft demoed the actual main gameplay, I initially thought that the Naval Warfare wasn’t all too important in Ubisofts perspective (thus allowing Sony to preview it, rather than doing so themselves) but at Gamescom this year Ubisoft shifted their focus to the Naval Warfare, which they’ve since said has had a full dedicated team working on it.
I was generally underwhelmed by the gameplay demo shown off at E3, not because it wasn’t interesting, but it seemed almost irrelevant to Assassins Creed’s core gameplay, regardless witnessing an actual trailer for this mode is aimed to otherwise get your blood pumping for Naval Warfare.
However, the trailer doesn’t quite live up to its potential on its own, but thanks to the song “He’s a pirate!” from Pirates of the Caribbean, this trailer works out to all kinds of amazing, and syncs astonishingly well. But to get this to work, you’re going to have to start the mini-video player I embedded at the 16 second mark within the trailer above (YouTube oddly isn’t currently allowing embedding to a specific point in a video)
To get this to work absolutely perfectly, click play on the Assassins Creed 3 trailer above, then click play and pause immediately after in the mini-embeded player, and click play on it exactly when you see the video above reach the 16 second mark. This wasn’t figured out by myself, but by the top commenter on the Naval Warfare trailer.
