Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag being released on next-gen platforms

The recently announced sequel to 2012’s Assassin’s Creed III, which brought an end to long-time protagonist, Desmond Miles’ storyline, had recently been announced for a possible (almost definite) release on October 29, 2013 (I wish they’d hold off on releasing it so soon, to avoid bugs; like in III), for the PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii U; although, according to a Ubisoft product page for the game, it may be headed to “next-gen” consoles, such as the recently announced PS4. Not sure what changes this will bring to the overall game, such as technical enhancements and play-styles, or if the PS4 version will get the 60 extra minutes of content that the PS3’s getting, but count me in for an Assassin’s Creed on the PS4!

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is to be set in the Carribeans, where players can travel to multiple islands, such as Jamaica, Cuba, and the Bahamas, via ship (an advanced version of one of III’s many diversions), and will be set before III, in 1715, as the main protagonist will be the “pirate” assassin, Edward Kenway, grandfather of III’s Connor. Expect the same great action of Assassin’s Creed, running on better tech, and without Desmond (thank god!), which will spell the end to continuity lock-out for people who haven’t played the other games in the series.

Ubisoft’s own Watch Dogs had also been announced for PS4, which will, most likely, be head and shoulders above this game, but hey, to each their own.

The official video game of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Two things I love with a passion are video games and writing, and what's a better combination of those two things than being a game reviewer? 'Cause that's what I am. A reviewer for Leet Gamers Asia.

My tastes in games breach all genres, though my fortes are platformers and first-person shooters. My favorite game series is probably Super Mario, specifically the 3D games. I also love Rayman, Hitman, Bioshock, Half-Life/Portal, Uncharted, and Grand Theft Auto. As for my favorite game, it's hard to say: I love Portal 2, Shadow of the Colossus, Half-Life 2, Bioshock, Resident Evil 4, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Rayman Legends, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Grand Theft Auto IV, L.A. Noire, Fallout 3, Journey, and Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence all so damn much.
