Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag has been confirmed by Ubisoft, and a date for the game’s full reveal has been announced.
Despite it being milked it's still a one of a kind game. I am surprised after all the years of success no assassins creed clones. Very weird for the console industry.
Well, the way I see it Assassin's Creed basically started off as a reinvention of Prince of Persia gameplay. That's what disappoints me the most about Assassin's Creed. I think the reason Prince of Persia is on hiatus is because it's main competitor would be Assassin's Creed, which now seems to be an annual release.
It's milked but I still like it. Mainly for the historic atmosphere, architecture etc.What I like about this one is that it's set in caribbean and i kinda had a feeling that some day we will have ac there.No body really tried making games in this kind of setting
The last few AC titles have suffered heavily from "feature creep", bogging down the great pacing that they achieved in AC2. Unless AC4 takes the series back in a sleeker direction, I'll be waiting for it to hit the bargain bin.
6 home console game releases in one generation... Sad.
I'm afraid that the AC franchise is turning into Call of Duty. They're popping out another variation every 6-12 months and it keeps getting slightly "upgraded" (in their eyes) and more watered down compared to the original. Seriously, the series has been downhill since ACII. I liked ACII because it was the perfect formula. It had just enough of what was fun from the original with just enough "new" features to make the game interesting. With Brotherhood, Revelations, and ACIII they just had to keep adding more "features" that just made the game less fun. Yahtzee hits the nail on the head with ACIII with what I think has become of the series: http://www.escapistmagazine... Assassin's Creed has become less about the actual assassination and more about the damned mini-games or doing missions one exacting way. In the first games you could complete a mission and its bonus objectives (if any) an infinite number of ways meaning every person could approach the game however they wanted, be it using pure stealth and taking people out like a ghost (my preferred way) to going balls out and slaughtering every damned guard that crosses your path for the world to see.
Ugh ! After the disappointment of the last game I was hoping they would take a break for a year or so.
Technically if the game is coming in 2014 , they are taking said year of break ... No way it will launch concurrently to Watch dogs
It is more than likely coming Fall 2013. Watch Dogs is likely to be delayed.
I very much doubt that . Watch dogs sounds way too advanced in works and confirmed in 2013 . Plus it's most likely a launch ps4/720 title We got nothing yet on AC 4 and they'd leave it room to breath .
Well it is Ubisoft though, most of their games not titled "Assassin's Creed" or "Just Dance" get delayed. Splinter Cell 5- Delayed by years Splinter Cell 4- Delayed 7 months Far Cry 3- Delayed few months Ghost Recon Future Solider- Delayed by years Rayman Legends- Delayed by months and months etc. etc...
Well none of those games were from the assassin Creed main team , like Watchdogs comprised of a good portion of said team .
Theres always a different ubisoft studio making new AC.
I'm a lil burned out on AC games. They're good, but growing kinda stale.
Fish! Just put the right bait on the fishing pole and swooop, you will have a lot of fish!
now that was fast..
How is it fast? There is an AC every year, its no like this is the first time they are doing this.
fast for a numbered version..
So now they even have the boxart before the game is even announced. Wow! The internet really is a nightmare for publishers these days. They can't hide anything anymore.
I don't think there's anything to hide. I'm sure we all saw this coming a mile away.
Goodbye amazing cities in AC, it was nice exploring you
Hopefully you can travel to different cities with your boat. I'm glad we are seeing something a bit different though.
That Assassin looks badass. Let me sail the sea free roam style jumping to other ships ect... In a open world an I'll gladly drink this milk in about 2 seconds.
The naval battles in Ass Creed 3 were my absolute least favourite gameplay moments of last year. Will be avoiding this like the plague.
Pirates? *yawn* The naval battles were appealing because they were never in your face but now they are making a game that revolves purely around it, if that's not milking I don't know what is.
As much as I loved the ship combat in Ac3, I don't think I'm ready for another AC just yet....... Especially with all the games and possible console releases this year
Waitaminute blonde hair? The guy in the screenshot had brown hair... Anyway I'll be pretty stunned if this game is actually good. See, it's obviously the case that Ubi has several teams working on several different AC games at once, which explains the frequency, but part of that is to with the fact that they use the same engine over and over again. I wouldn't have a problem with that if there were only like a trilogy of games, but there's much more than that. There's a sense that they churn these games out with minimal effort and because we're not developers, we don't recognise how lazy they are or something. I don't know really.
Wow a new assassians creed,what a surprise. Hey ubisoft what about prince of Persia,oh wait yeah I remember it ended on a cliffhanger and you pretty much said screw it, to this day theres still no sequel,beyond good and evil 2 in yeah we havnt heard anything since 2008,probably got canceled for more assassians creed games,i swear to god assassians creed is just over milked to the point where the franchise that created it(prince of Persia) is now being put in a dark corner,and im a huge ac fan but im so happy I didnt support 3,this is no different than call of duty its infinite milk.
Damn it... I was really hoping it wasn't true.. the whole boating in ac3 was really gimmicky... Now its an entire game. Boooooo
No ac2 customization = no buy
That was quick! There werent kidding when they want AC to be a yearly franchise. They should've saved the next AC on next gen consoles and set it in either Japan or Europe.
This should of been a next gen title
Wait...didn't the last numbered AC just come out a few months ago??...
I'll buy this used, and only when it's super cheap. They effed me over with ACIII.
Oh boy another boring, open world, repetitious affair. I made the mistake of buying one and two but never again.
I wonder if a 'jumping the shark' mini game is included in this one?
Okay I understand the milking, but why the IV ?
Pirates are cool, seems very early for a new Assassins Creed game aren't they still releasing DLC for 3?
Despite having a IV on it, not changing much of the location and time frame makes it look a lot like a transition episode just like Brotherhood and Revelations... Well, I thought naval gameplay was the best new feature in the last AC but this doesn't seem very appealing to me...
Buying for 5$ thirdhand after the crap 3 was
Ridiculous... Amazing how out of touch these publishers can be. I won't support another AC game until they prove they're going to treat it with some respect. AC3 was incredibly underwhelming. The characters, story, gameplay, protagonist, etc all fell flat. Ubi is being incredibly short-sighted.
