Skewed and Reviewed have posted two gameplay videos of their hands on time with the latest Assassins Creed game during their time at PAX Prime 2013. The gameplay shows the naval combat aspects of the game and the great graphics.
Thanks for the share.
No naval multiplayer combat is a BIG deal breaker for me.
The devs were actually asked why there wasn't naval multiplayer. The issue with it is that developers have to synchronize every single wave from every console to console. Otherwise stuff like you can't see this ship through a wave and that ship can see you so he just shot you over the wave when it would look like he shot you through the wave with his cannons. It's hard enough for them to synchronize ground games. In AC3 my biggest letdown was we couldn't actually explore on the naval missions. I can't wait to play this one though.
Thanks! Thats was helpful. +1 bub
Hopefully, they can find a solution even if it means some dlc later on. Naval battles would be epic, hasn't Battlefield 4 got waves that appear the same to each player. If so, it shows it is a feasible idea.
Agreed. AC3 was sooooo boring save the naval battles. That is what I'm most excited about in the next installment. What really killed the vibe in 3 was all those damn "follow this guy around for an hour and make sure to get hung up on every light socket so he goes out of range and you have to start over" sequences. Well, that and Connor was an absolute bore.
Thing is. DICE have fixed this so everyone online sees the same wave, no matter where you are in the world.
Welcome, I wanted to board the ship and do some combat there but I could not get in close enough, the one time I did it kept sailing on as I was figuring out the controls.
AC4 Black Flag looks incredible. The details look fantastic as well. From the look of the waves to the cannons firing and smoke coming out of them. How did you like the Dual Shock 4?
Can't wait to dive with the whales and swim underwater with some sharks :D
Heck yea! Far Cry 3 really made me see what water mammals can be like. I'll never forget that nerve wracking feeling when I was diving for treasure and just knew a damn great white was lurking somewhere. That, and the alligators. They're reptiles, though lol
I did not get to that part but I loved what I saw. So many good looking things coming, I just have to find the time around all our end of the year projects and Holiday plans and trips.
I still wish they would do some co op with this game. Not the timed wolf pack stuff but something similar to splinter cells co op missions.I'm having a blast right now with those. Of course drop in drop out would be amazing as well.
Something seems off with the waves, just doesn't seem to move realistically, too still painting like Imo.
See it in person and your jaw will drop to the floor. This is the best looking game I've ever seen on a console and I was at Pax yesterday as well.
Were the games running on consoles or pc? Nevermind....guy below answered my question.
DaGR8JIBRALTAR, The video's above were not at the AC4 booth. They only had the online multi player at the AC4 booth. You couldn't see what they were running on as everything was in cased but the PS4 DS4 controller. I asked the people running the booth and they hare no clue. Just hired help...
These videos are from the Nvidia booth. I got a chance to play it there the other day and I have to say it seems like a huge improvement over AC3. Not to mention the whole thing looked gorgeous running on SLI GTX 780s @4k resolution.
