Assassin’s Creed has always been a popular franchise. Now, with its latest game just around the corner, Ubisoft is ready to let the fans of the franchise explore a new world. Indeed, this will be a “new” experience because the new game focuses on pirates and exploring the sea. This new game is called Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag. Set to be released at the end of October and November 2013, gamers will be able to experience on how to become a pirate and rule the seven seas. Even though this is a pirate themed game, there will always be the “classic” Assassin’s Creed gameplay, such as, doing side missions and stealth missions. Players will be able to land on islands and do all the required or side quest missions. This new “pirate” gameplay is very engaging indeed. You’ll be able to control your very own ship and also engage skirmishes with other pirate ships. You’ll be controlling Edward Kenway, he’s the grandfather of Connor, the protagonist of Assassin’s Creed 3 and he is also the father of the antagonist, Haytham Kenway also in Assassin’s Creed 3.
Unlike the ship gameplay in Assassin’s Creed 3, this game is open world and you can freely explore the high seas with your ship. Ubisoft’s team made sure that you’ll be able to explore these elements in the game right on the bat. You’ll be able to do hunting as well in this game. Much like Assassin’s Creed 3, hunting is included but in Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag, hunting is better and bigger. You can also harpoon sharks and whales in this game. Exploring the world and having an adventure in Assassin’s Creed 4 Black flag is definitely different than its predecessor. It’s more vast and the pirate ship battles are pretty fun. You can also dive beneath the ocean depths and discover hidden treasures. Fans of the series are definitely excited with all these “new” gameplay elements. There are demos available for the game via youtube and other gaming websites. Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag is schduled to be released in October and November 2013.
