Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is gearing up for launch on PS3 and PS4. In anticipation of this momentous event, we’ve created a brand new trailer to deliver all the details you’ll need in order to stride confidently in the daunting shoes of Captain Edward Kenway. With compelling characters, an expansive world, and a near-infinite amount of pirate activities to engage in, Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is the largest and most immersive game in the Assassin’s series.
Even though the game was announced in June, our Development team at Studio SF in Ubisoft’s San Francisco office has been hard at work on Rocksmith 2014 Edition for two years. The process was long, but ultimately worth it as the team took a hard look at the original Rocksmith and decidedly improved on every existing feature while dreaming up innovative new ones. In the words of Paul Cross, our Creative Director, “We set out immediately to do something different.”
We’ve got a bunch of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag announcements for you this week, PlayStation Assassins! Let’s get right to it with the announcement of our single-player DLC: Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag: Freedom Cry.
When the Ubisoft team at Studio San Francisco set out to completely revamp Rocksmith, that was our goal – to make Rocksmith the unquestionable fastest and best way to learn to play guitar or bass. It was, with no exaggeration, a massive undertaking that took years to complete despite the product’s core engine already existing from the original iteration.
Pirates were a lot of things, but above all, they were ruthless opportunists on the hunt for plunder, booty, fortune… call it whatever you want – Captain Edward Kenway calls it an end to be reached, by any means necessary. With the acquisition of riches his paramount goal, Edward assembles a group of like-minded renegades to take the West Indies for all they’re worth. Watch the video below for a quick peek at how Kenway organizes a world-class pirate heist!
We’re introducing a full crew of rowdy yet realistic buccaneers, privateers and straight-up pirates in Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, so we figured you would benefit from a little face-time with the roughest of them. And who better to cry them out for you than Captain Edward Kenway himself, played by the talented Matt Ryan.
A lot of people have asked us what kinds of technical advancements can be expected from Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag on PS4, so we asked Associate Producer Sylvain Trottier to give us a couple of examples… He went a little nuts, and delivered an entire video detailing a ton of improvements.
Ubisoft has revealed one of their latest projects built on UbiArt Framework — known for its use in the marvelous Rayman games. Titled Valiant Hearts: The Great War, this puzzle adventure will follow five characters from different countries as they struggle to survive one of the most devastating events in human history: the first World War. Ubisoft Montpellier is handling development of Valiant Hearts, and aims to launch on PS3 and PS4 sometime next year.
