According to a report from InsideGamingDaily on Monday, all of the details that have been revealed thus far regarding "Assassin's Creed 4" have been run through.
"Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag" is indeed a sequel to "Assassin's Creed III" and it is a prequel. The conflict is of course between the templars and the assassins.
Edward Kenway is the new protagonist, and he is the father of Haytham Kenway. Edward is apparently more of a selfish assassin, which has a direct conflict with the ideals of the creed.
The notoriety system does not exist in this game, so for those who got tired of having to lower their notoriety every time they got into conflict, that is out.
Ubisoft said there will be 50 different locations for gamers to visit and in and around the Caribbean, which includes Havana, Nassau and Kingston.
The level design ratio has been described by Ubisoft as being about 60% land and 40% sea. Many gamers have been talking about this situation happening and are hoping Ubisoft can embellish upon sea battles.
When gamers travel from one place to another via boat, Ubisoft seems to be working hard on making that function easy to complete.
Ubisoft has said that from the moment gamers see an enemy ship in the distance to the point of a ship being boarded, there should not be one loading screen.
"Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag" will indeed to be featuring underwater exploration for the first time.
This hasn't been done in any previous "Assassin's Creed" title, which opens up the possibility of gamers being able to find hidden caves and treasures.
Perhaps even enemies will be able to chase after gamers underwater for the first time, as that has historically been a mode of escape in recent installments.
Perhaps even sharks or other fish being threats to gamers as they swim below the surface. Ubisoft definitely has some room to be creative with this new feature and hopefully they will take full advantage of it.
Most people know that Captain Jack Sparrow's ship is The Black Pearl, well gamers will be at the helm of a new ship called the Jackdaw.
This seems to be something gamers will acquire over the course of their progress through the game, and isn't something they will receive at the start.
Perhaps players will be able to upgrade their ship as they go on and even trade a ship for another ship based on certain features.
In addition, gamers most likely will need to recruit a crew for their ship, so much like recruiting assassin's in previous games, a crew will be necessary.
Edward Kenway will be caught in the middle of historic events with a very strong "Assassin's Creed" tone. Those events include the defeat of the Spanish Armada that took place in the Caribbean, as well as Charles Vane's incredible getaway from Nassau.
Other characters that were confirmed were Vane, Blackbeard, Calico Jack, Benjamin Hornigold and Anne Bonny will be a part of the game's talent.
Ubisoft also indicated that gamers will be driving the character's personality more than it being setup without choice. They said Edward Kenway will be "you."
"Assassin's Creed 4" will debut on Oct. 29th.
