Jean Guesdon, the creative director at Ubisoft working on Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, says that the piracy theme of the game will make it very different from the rest of the titles in the series.
He tells The Official Xbox Magazine
that, “very early on in the project, when we started to realize the scope, freshness and innovation of what we had with the Piracy setting, we knew it was going to be a whole different beast of its own.”
The core gameplay element of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be naval combat, with enhancements when compared to the third game in the series.
Players will also be able to board enemy ships in order to take them over and explore a number of towns across the Caribbean in the new title.
