This not going to be the Assassin's Creed that we've seen in the previous five installments, Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag is going to be an iteration that is familiar in many respects, but nothing like fans of the franchise have seen before.
In this exclusive interview with Ubisoft's Ashraf Ismail, who is the game director on Assassin's Creed 4, we discuss with him the game's transition into a largely sea-based gameplay experience, why Connor was not given a second installment, how Black Flag's open-world varies from previous installments and much, much more.
Assassin's Creed 4 hits retailers this coming Tuesday and will be available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on day one of their respective launches. For all of our latest exclusives, previews, reviews and features, follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook. Game On.
