Now that Ubisoft has made not one but two pirate-themed games in the Assassin's Creed universe, a survey being sent out to fans (and through them to IGN) wonders if players wouldn't just be fine with a straight-up pirate game.
Weird things can happen during Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag's fights, and while the game is about pirates, which means barrels full of rum, these moves might be too much even for Edward Kenway.
Folks who criticize Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag for straying too far from the core conflict between the Templars and Assassin's should probably avoid Assassin's Creed Pirates, as the first two words of its title don't really count.
While the rest of the world has to wait until the end of this month to get their hands on Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, I've got Edward Kenway and friends right here on my desk, ready to pillage, loot, burn, and maybe make-out a little.
The PC version of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will come out on November 19. That's right in between the PS4 and Xbox One versions, which will launch alongside their respective consoles on November 15 and 22. PS3, 360 and Wii U versions come out on October 29.
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?
Such swashbuckling swarthiness!
So Stylish When They Stab: Here's a music-video look at the multiplayer for the upcoming Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Looks like a grudge match between a bunch of Joker's clown-gang, if you ask me. But if past AC games are anything to go by, it'll be a fun, stabby grudge match.
Assassin's Creed IV's "Stealth" trailer sure does involve a lot of murder. And it's not just stealthy murder, either. Semantics aside, I'm really looking forward to neck-stabbing some bad guys in the jungle. Even if I won't have the kick-ass music. Did I mention there's kick-ass music? Have a look above.
Shark Week is right around the corner, and Los Angeles just finished recovering from the sharknado so, of course, the latest batch of screenshots for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag would feature a couple of big-ass sharks prominently. They're the assassins of the sea, after all.
