Default Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Just saw this video on the xb dashboard and thought it looked pretty impressive. I know there's going to be people complaining about this coming out a year after III but I personally don't mind it.

I can see where the concern comes from for it being made in only 1 year.


Elder scrolls games take 6 years to make, for a reason.


Still though, could be just as good as it's formers

yep. coming out with a new one in a year sounds kinda sketchy. But hey if they can pull it off whatever. I'll buy it.

I have a feeling they've been working on this for a while. I think they had worked on III for a while beforehand as well, so maybe it has been in the works for a while. It says it will be on the next-gen consoles, so perhaps they started working on it when they were told about the new consoles?


Who knows.. the trailer(as is common with the AC franchise except for III, which I found to be subpar comparatively) was quite compelling and the potential story-line for a pirate-esk adventure sounds pretty cool to me.

Just popped open the case. Waiting for my PS3 to update to give it a try. I had never played AC before III came out, but I really enjoyed it, I also really enjoyed the naval missions so I have high hopes for this one. Anyone been playing?

I have played all of them but don't think I am getting this new one. I didn't like the naval battles in the last game and since this new one is pirate based I'm going to pass. I also have to finish GTA and I want to get the new FIFA to play with some friends.

Let us know how it is though!

Yeah I thought that would be a good place to stop. Fun so far, I still need to get the shanty on that first memory.

I like the naval battles in this one far more than the last one. You have far more control of the ship and there are tons more upgrades to do on it.

Being able to spyglass a faraway ship to see what she's carrying & deciding whether you want to chase it down and attack it is fun - different upgrades use different materials.

The loot you can plunder from ships you attack is sugar, rum, wood, cloth and metal...as well as ammo refills & crew member refills. You sell sugar & rum for $, use the $ and wood, cloth & metal to upgrade the ship.

Early on in the naval parts, before you're considered an actual "captain", were challenging on the border of annoyingly frustrating as you cannot upgrade the ship till you're a real captain...which happens at a certain point in the main quest line - in Havana I think.

Ship battles are fun and boarding the bigger ships can be hectic and sometimes very hard when there's a lot of loot at stake. Sometimes the fight on deck when you board them after disabling their ship is harder than the disabling of their ship! There's a few different scenarios in the boarding of a ship to take it over and plunder it. Sometimes you just have to kill 5 of their guys, sometimes it's 10 guys, sometimes it's 15 guys and two captains, sometimes it's 15 guys and 2 scouts who are both way the hell up at the top of the mast in the crows nest....you just never know....but you can always just sink it straight away. Sink a disabled ship, you get half the loot on board....board it and take it over, you can repair your own ship and get all the loot there is.

Basically, the map is the extreme southern tip of Florida, the Bahamas, Cuba and the islands just south of it. I've only got the northern quarter or half of the map open and it is seriously immense - of course, most of it is water & unless you're a fast-travel addict, it can take some time to get from A to B. But it's the getting from A to B that is fun too - there is loot and rafts with Tom Hanks/Wilson floating around that you can pick up...not to mention spots you can get in a harpoon boat and take down huge whales, hammerhead sharks, bull sharks, etc etc which are used to craft things you need when you're not in the water - pistol holsters, ammo pouches, darts, etc etc etc.

So far, a fun game that really does have a significantly different 'feel' than the last one. This is not just a copy & paste of its predecessor. The fighting/moving is still Assassin's Creed with a couple new animations so the mechanics haven't changed much.

My only complaint is that the bad guys still seem to just sit there and wait their turn to attack you while you do a seven-part kill move on his friend. A lot of times, they politely wait for you to finish sticking your two swords through his buddy 3 or 4 times and THEN try to attack you.

My take after a couple three days - if you like Assassin's Creed games, you should get this game.
