We got our first look at what multiplayer gaming will be like in "Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag" that is set to be released later this year. Website VG24/7 provided the first look at the game's multiplayer component in a brief gameplay video.

One of the multiplayer modes found in "Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag" shown in the video requires you to protect a multitude of treasure chests that are scattered around the map. Your foes will attempt to loot your bling, and you have to run around and prevent them from doing so. In another mode dubbed "Infection," you're tasked with picking up packages before you're able to kill your foes.
