Ubisoft: 40 percent of Assassin’s Creed IV is naval missions (GamesBeat)

“About 60 percent of the main path is on land,” says Ashraf Ismail, game director on Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. “40 percent is naval.” While he hesitates to call the previous game a usability test for Black Flag’s pirate adventures, he does admit that Assassin’s Creed III helped push the technology where his game needed it to go. Then his team took it further. (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360)

How many percents is singing and dancing to pirate songs?
Tolkoto  +   606d ago
I can only hope the other 60.
Spinal  +   605d ago
And that's why I won't be getting this Assassins creed I hated the whole naval parts of creed 3. I just can't stand the direction this game is going in. Ill stick to god of war ascension and the last of us as my most wanted games this year. Not forgetting bioshock infinite and watch dogs.

I'll only sign on if the Dancing is motion controlled enabled for WiiMote/UPad, Kinect, and Move.

-Hopefully, they use Usher for choreographer & motion capture.

"Funny" @ JGrubb & Tolkoto
But I am serious... >.>

Ubisoft slowly screwing up AC...
SybaRat  +   606d ago
Wenching is the other 60 percent.
SolidSystem  +   606d ago
ew... naval was alright. at this point I kinda feel like AC franchise is cashing in because people liked the naval....
Root  +   606d ago
I know

It wae even that good in my opinion, just compared to everything else AC3 offered it stood out more.

Way to go Ubisoft...turning AC into something its not
SolidSystem  +   606d ago
if they want to make a naval game, do it. I loved Sid Mieyers pirates!... this just doesn't seem like AC to me.
PopRocks359  +   606d ago
I think on this we agree. Naval missions were an okay break from the usual "work" in ACIII, but I wouldn't want nearly half the damn game to consist of such a slowly paced and simplistic activity.

Poprocks they are doing to do to space the game out more....to make it feel longer

I can't believe the amount of people eating this crap up

It's the start of a franchises thats in decline....just like FF, RE, dmc, Dead Space, Mass Effect etc
BanBrother  +   606d ago
Yes, agreed. To all those who liked the naval battles; good for you you, they were fun parts of the game. But is this called "The Pirate Creed"? F*** NO!

Ubisoft are turning this into nothing more than a casual action game. Where the hell is the stealth and assassinations? They are too afraid to make a purely stealth oriented game, for the same reason EA didn't want to make a purely single player horror experience. But Ubisoft gets a free pass lol. Wake the f*** up.
Oh well, at least I can add another franchise to my "not buying because of greedy POS scumbag publisher"

@ solid

Sid Miers Games are awsome, there should be more games on consoles like that
Number-Nine  +   606d ago
they were just looking for an excuse to get more naval battles into assassins creed because of how successful it was in ac3.
darkronin229  +   606d ago
I dunno...maybe internally they would've known that the naval battles were good, but public reception of it didn't come out till last November. No way they could put together a new AC in less than a year from that reaction alone.
SolidSystem  +   606d ago
you dont think so? using an existing engine with a time period pretty close to that of AC3 could mean re-used resources along with some new ones... they have many of the mechanics done from AC3 and need some tweaking. this is exactly the kind of game I can imagine them pumping out quickly.
Jek_Porkins  +   606d ago
So Navel Missions which are the thing I hated in AC3 are almost half of what the game is about? I like the AC games, but this one will have to be quite a deal in price before I buy it.
Derekvinyard13  +   606d ago
what price u think, like 30? or 15? im thinking 20
Jek_Porkins  +   606d ago
I'd give it a go at $20, I waited for Revelations to hit $20 before buying it.
PygmelionHunter  +   606d ago
Remind me again why this game is not set in China or Japan like pretty much everyone begged for...
rezzah  +   606d ago
If not this game then surely another. They have seen the reaction for people wanting AC in China. I don't think they want to pass that up because of the profit they can make.

Would you rather a AC setting in China for current gen or next gen gaming?

I prefer next gen.

Even if AC 4 is being released on the PS4 (next xbox?) it will be limited to current gen consoles.
ginsunuva  +   606d ago
They had a boat mechanic and they need to milk it
rezzah  +   606d ago
Good news for me, i enjoyed sailing and fighting in the sea.

I wonder what they can improve on in the naval sections. Will it be open world and not only mission based?
SanMarco  +   606d ago
Omg. Goodbye AC.
Erudito87  +   606d ago
it would have been better if this was a new ip or spin off but to be assassins creed 4 is just insane
kma2k  +   606d ago
i would be happy to hear that was a whoops & they really meant 10-15%
Neo Nugget  +   606d ago
Funny. I've heard nothing but praise about the naval missions in AC3 :O You guys are so silly.
eliteslaya13  +   606d ago
I disliked them after about two missions. I don't get the praise for it.
josephayal  +   606d ago
40% naval missions? I will not buy it
red2tango  +   606d ago
I don't get how people can like the naval missions. That's not Assassin's Creed. I'll wait for the 29.99 boxing day sale at Best Buy.
InTheLab  +   606d ago
Not falling for this again...
OpieWinston  +   605d ago
"Unlike Assassin’s Creed III, you’ll board shore-to-ship and even ship-to-ship at will without load screens or cutscenes."

That actually is what I want... Using ships to navigate around the 50 islands.

Every new detail that is let out gets me more and more excited for it. ATM I'm 80/20 buying it on Day 1, either for PC or 360.
