Not to be that guy, but this is very old news :I

and other sites posted about it.

Please don't post old news. I'm not even sure how this got pushed through. Welp, Looks like I'm downvoting this site because it obviously is just bringing up old news for hits.

This is new news to me and I usually glance though the news articles almost on a daily basis on N4G during my free time and have yet to notice this. So thanks to the submitter for sharing this, as it at least brought new news to me.

Not trying to down play your intention or take anything away from you, as I would dislike seeing old news from multiple sources making a mess of the site as well - so I agree with your intention, but this really is the first time I've notice this news on here.

No it was actually explained in greater detail this morning. It was most certainly announced already.

That's awesome. I was going to get the PS4 version anyways, so this news makes me anticipate this game even more.

I like how the transition from land to sea gameplay is seamless with AC4, makes the game that much more immersive and engaging. So looking forward to playing it upon release!

this is why i always get the playstation versions of everything it has more and superior content. thos who refuse to go ps4 will have an inferior product as well as inferior games all in the name of wanting to be a fanboy and loyal servant to ms who rips them off lol.

this is a fact ps4 is just better.

Cryptcuzz  +   851d ago
Oh what!?!? Whales!?! Damn that's awesome! Now that is next gen bro, forget about the next gen dog when you can have next gen whales!

Seriously I am looking forward to enjoying this game.

I really liked Aveline in ac liberation after I binged game on it to completion at the final stretch and finished Avelines name stuck in my head I like the way it sounds..... Aveline.
CaptainYesterday  +   851d ago
Yeah I liked Aveline to it's great how she's returning still hoping for a sequel to Liberation though.
_FantasmA_  +   851d ago
Maybe she's born with it, Maybe its Aveline...
Master-H  +   852d ago
Cool, gonna hold off buying it for the ps3 and wait till i get my ps4 in 2014,i wanna see how good the graphics will be on ps4 and more importantly i don't wanna deal with the crappy frames problems on ps3 version like the recent AC games.
KrisButtar  +   852d ago
This is great news, does this mean a Vita version is in the works.


"Assassin’s Creed 4 takes place a while after Liberation, so the game will feature an older Aveline, a Ubisoft blog post revealed."

Doesn't AC4 take place BEFORE AC3 and AC3L because the Assassin in AC4 is Conners' grandpa or did that change?

Yeah. Would be weired if they messed up the time line.
KrisButtar  +   851d ago
Yea they better not mess with the timeline, if they did it would ruin the whole series for me.

Aveline is around Conners age and Edward is Conners grandpa. Maybe we just see(play) Aveline near the end of Edwards journey, where Edward is a very old man.

According to the book that can't be, so I believe either you get to play as Aveline on a few missions set after liberation that are independent of the main game or whoever wrote the story messed up.

The gamespot version of this stor yexplains a little more:

"While the main plot of Assassin's Creed IV is set before the events of Assassin's Creed III and its Vita spin-off Liberation, Aveline's missions take place after the conclusion of her previous game. “It’s a ways forward so Aveline is a bit older,” said lead writer Darby McDevitt on the Ubisoft blog.

“It’s not directly related to the end of her story. If Assassin’s Creed IV is like a novel, Aveline’s missions are like a short story.”

During a panel at San Diego Comic Con 2013, McDevitt also linked Aveline's missions to the series' present-day storyline, saying that shadowy organisation Abstero has upgraded the Animus.

“The present-day is set in Abstergo Entertainment--which is this fun, hip company to work for, at first,” said McDevitt.

“You are able to access the Aveline stuff because your coworkers are working on retrieving different genetic memories from all kinds of different people.”

We need a woman assassin as the lead on consoles

Why does it matter what the gender is?

Need? No.

Would it be nice? Yeh.
jetlian  +   851d ago
I thought AC3L was set in connors time not connors granddad's time which is ac4. She wasnt born yet. Also isn't there another vita game coming?
corvusmd  +   851d ago
Oh no now the game is ruined...wait a sec, who is this person anyway? Nevermind I don't care
BlaqMagiq24  +   851d ago
So wait I'm confused. What exactly is the timespan of ACIV? I thought it was before Aveline's time as an assassin.
patsrule316  +   851d ago
AC IV is before Aveline's time, but the Animus allows you to go into other people in different times. See my post above for more details.
phantomexe  +   851d ago
Avelines time was the same time as Connors....better yet AC4 is before AC3
