New Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag trailer introduces The Watch

Exclusive VIP program revealed via the ultimate dramatic voiceover

Ubisoft has released a new Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag trailer announcing an online VIP service for the game that's billed as "a place where true assassins shall gather".

The program, dubbed The Watch, will gather all Assassins Creed related news, upcoming events, studio updates, and fan art together, supporting mobile, tablet and Facebook connectivity. Members will receive access to exclusive content including contests, quizzes and videos, and there's an integrated achievements system to entice compulsive collectors.

The service is online now, and those who pre-order the game are granted immediate access with a code supplied by their retailers. Sounds like only diehard AC fans need apply. Will you be signing up?

Log got acquainted with Black Flag's protagonist, Edward Kenway, at a recent preview of the game, and you can read his impressions here. Once you've done that, you can take a look at Ed's feature piece, which details eight ways ACIV is a totally different Creed.
