Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag – Modern Day story rendered Optional

The entire modern day portion of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is optional.

If you have had the chance to play any of the Assassins Creed series, you might have wondered as to how pointless the modern day portion of the game is. And to some extent it may have been annoying for some of the users.

i was thinking they would have created some convoluted series of games to some how end the series but seeing as they went with the cod formula then the modern day portion really is irrelevant

official, I'm out of AC. the modern day story is what kept the whole universe relevant. Now it's just a hidden dagger fest set in any era ubi sees fit.

I always felt like the modern day parts were just filler and I couldnt wait to get back to the past.

Sure it might have given the story some context and an overriding story arc but from a gameplay standpoint it was a snoozefest.

No FanS Land1023d ago

it was a snoozefest because ubisoft wanted its consumer to only be hooked to the game's main setting.

I'm pretty sure it's the reason why the modern day moments were passionately boring.

exactly, what the hell is wrong with ubisoft?

assassins creed is not even assassins creed anymore without the modern day setting. the modern day was the main story. I have the feeling it won't be significant anymore now that it's optional.

Its because Watch Dogs was there original concept for AC3. I still firmly believe that.

wtopez1023d ago

I'm personally making this whole series optional. AC3 was soooo boring. They should take a few years off. I'll wait until the 2014 Steam summer sale to get this.

Bathyj1023d ago

Agreed. I'm all Assassins Creeded out I think.

Didnt even finish part 3. Traded it back in while it was still worth something and I rarely trade games. I havent been following part 4 at all but they might sneak in a good game under my radar so I'll worry about it once its out.

The only reason I have any hope for it is cos the naval sections of part 3 were the only parts I really enjoyed.

Campy da Camper1023d ago

Bath I would be totally with you except for one thing.... The naval battles. Those were so much fun that if the new installment has say, triple the amount of AC3 I am all over it. Heck, they need to make a AC game that is nothing BUT those ship battles.

SIRHC131023d ago

All I want is a game about ASSASSINATING TARGETS. Is that too much to ask for an Assassin's Creed game?

Tdmd1023d ago

Assassinating targets using stealth, I'd add.

Bathyj1023d ago

And god forbid a stealth game finally gets a crouch/cover button.
