Ubisoft has had a very successful history of making games that people enjoy and one game series that is responsible for this would be Assassins Creed.
The series has been well received by the public and critics alike with it selling over 55 million copies as of March 2013.
The game play of the series features action-adventure, open world and stealth elements. The combination of these mechanics is what makes the game appealing to people and with each new game you are taken on a different adventure.
The latest entrant Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag is shaping up to be the best one, where gamers will get the chance to experience life as a pirate and be the captain of their own ship.
The part about controlling your own ship was explored in Assassins Creed III with naval battles, but it will be more refined in Black Flag and add another layer to the game.
It will also feature many unique locations to explore with a great balance between land and naval exploration.
The world will also open up sooner, as opposed to Assassins Creed III, where the missions were very scripted and did not give players the freedom to explore until later on in the game.
Another impressive aspect of the game will be the ship that the player will captain. The name of the ship is called the Jackdaw and it will be upgradeable throughout the game.
There is also a new underwater component that’s being added and the player will have access to a spyglass.
This will allow for the examination of distant ships, along with their cargo and strength. It can also help determine if an island still has animals to hunt, treasures to find or high points to reach for synchronization.
These improvements along with the chance to experience what it’s like to be a pirate is what separates this game from other entrants in the series.
This is a new trailer from Ubisoft that looks at the story of Edward Kenway.
