Free aim! It has free aim! That means using a ranged weapon from really far out is now possible since the auto targeting is no longer necessary for shooting and assassinations with ranged weapons now involve skill.
The world looks amazing and I love the faction battles. The whole storm thing is really interesting too. I'm still scared that you'll be a little bit too OP like the previous games, which just makes upgrades a waste of time instead of a necessary part of progression.
Here's hoping though. Quite frankly, I'd be psyched just for the setting.
Is it just me, or are those the fastest Ship-of-the-Line sailing ships I've ever seen? Seriously, the moment Kenway gets at the helm, the ship instantly drops sails and starts forward at full speed. I know that Assasin's Creed isn't he most realistic series out there, but there's still a suspension of disbelief to maintain.
Still, this looks like one of the first promising Pirate Sandbox games in awhile. I'm looking forward to it.
