By now, Assassin's Creed fans know more or less what to expect from the game's controls. Running, jumping, climbing, stabbing… they're pretty established at this point. But what of the PS4's touchpad?

In this video, Revision3's Max Scoville shows us one way ACIV will use the touchpad. As it turns out, it'll be keyed to the map, and will let you look around, zoom in, and set waypoints similarly to how you would on a smartphone or tablet using Google Maps. As a noted video-game map grouch—and someone who thinks ACIII's map could have used a LOT of improvement—I'm looking forward to seeing how this works in action.
