Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag features

Although naval-based missions will get a lion’s share of the story, about 60 per cent of missions will still be based on land as there will be over 50 locations to explore. Alas, our favourite hooded hero, Desmond, won’t be making an appearance in AC4 but expect to see a few famous faces floating about including Benjamin Hornigold and the notorious sea devil Black Beard.
Many weapons will return, including hidden blades, swords, spear dart and so on, as well as new additions like a blowpipe and pistols. The game will also bring back more of a focus on stealth, something that the last couple of games have embraced less and less.

Yves Guillemot, chief executive officer at Ubisoft said. “With the new hero and new setting we are creating the boldest and most unique Assassin’s Creed game yet, while still respecting the pillars of the franchise that have made it such a fan favorite.

“Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is based on a true, harsh and exciting part of a legendary era and will thrill longtime fans and newcomers alike.”

It didn't come directly from the horse's mouth but games site The Gaming Liberty claims the next Assassin’s Creed could come equipped with a co-op mode, giving gamers the opportunity to play online against – or with – their friends (much like Black-Ops, but minus the flesh-eating zombies).
According to the article, Ubisoft released a poll which gauged players for their opinion on whether they’d like their friends to join them in "solving puzzles and missions".

Adding weight to the rumours, Assassin’s Creed mission director Philippe Bergon recently revealed that the 2007 Altair-led Assassin’s Creed once featured an 'ambitious' co-op component but was later shelved to make room for Desmond’s Animus storyline.

Speaking to games site OXM, he said: “Before we knew about the Desmond story and Animus link, we had a huge co-op component in there but it just became too hard to do: the engine couldn't support it, and then the metaphor we had above it didn't support it."

He added: "Co-op was one of those big things at the beginning that just didn't make sense in the end. For us it was really part of the single player experience. To have in-and-out co-op, and in the end we never thought it made sense in the storyline that we had for the Animus."

The first three Assassin’s Creed games are about Desmond Miles. Oh, you don’t remember? That’s fine. It’s easy to forget such a bubbling font of personality, even though we wouldn’t have controlled his way cooler ancestors and their Templar-slaying skills if they hadn’t sprung from the mind of the world’s most vegetative assassin. He’s no longer the center of attention in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, but Ubisoft isn’t entirely ignoring Mr. Miles in the context of the franchise’s meta-arc. In a self-published Q&A (via All Games Beta), Creative Director Jean Guesdon says the character constitutes “a very important legacy” for Black Flag and beyond.

“Desmond has been the main protagonist of the franchise so far,” Guesdon explains. “This won’t be the case in Black Flag. That being said, the game isn’t a reboot nor is it a spinoff, and we’re continuing to develop a consistent mythology. So yes, Desmond will be referred to as a very important legacy of the Assassin’s Creed universe.”

Ubisoft promised “more Desmond than you’ve ever had before” during the development of Assassin’s Creed 3, and that game’s culminating events wrapped up his saga in a clunky yet more engaging way beyond having him eternally lounge around in the Animus. It’ll be interesting to see how the modern-day storyline progresses alongside the virtual assassinating we all know and love going forward.

"He's a fearsome dog that feeds off trouble and turmoil... I've seen him clear the deck of a Spanish galleon like it were nothing. Fighting like a devil, dressed as a man."
―Blackbeard speaking of Edward Kenway.


Early in his life, he joined the British Royal Navy and, once accepted, found himself stationed in the West Indies. However, a quick end to the war and the promise of gold, glory and fame eventually seduced him into a life of piracy; it was during this quest Edward first encountered the Assassin Order, and became embroiled in their struggle.

Edward was also the father of Haytham Kenway and the grandfather of Ratonhnhaké:ton(Conner); through this line, he is an ancestor of Desmond Miles.
