PAX East 2013: Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag set to explore some uncharted territory

Ryan Gan of SideQuesting writes:

"Ubisoft steers Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag towards a slightly new direction by emphasizing exploration. Also, pirates. We go eyes-on with a good, long look at the game.

If it’s one thing the Assassin’s Creed franchise has done well, it’s secretly force-feeding us history lessons. The historical context, colorful characters, and exploration associated with pirates has some of our attention." (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Yes... "US history lessons..."

> First few games took place in Europe or the middle-east.

Not US, us as in "us", as in all of us. ;)

I just finshed reading AC forsaken and it's really good. It gives you information about the final days of the lead guy of black flags. It does a nice job of filling in the blanks of AC3 as well. If your a fan of AC i'd read it.

I buy day one Black Flag for next-gen.
