    About The game
    Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is an upcoming action-adventure game, and the sixth main installment in the Assassin's Creed series. A sequel to 2012's Assassin's Creed III due to the progression of the modern day storyline, the game will tell the story of Edward Kenway - father to Haytham Kenway, grandfather to Ratonhnhaké:ton and an ancestor of Desmond Miles.

    Who you play as

    As I said you play as Edward Kenway - father to Haythem Kenway, grandfather to Ratonhnhaké:ton and granfather to Conner. It has been confirmed that Desmond does not appear in this game and you play as an employee of Absturgio, sent to find information about the Assasin's. You play as Haythem through technology that Absturgio have found
    Where the game is set
    If you haven't guessed already it's set in the pirate era, and it will be primarily on and around the islands in the Caribbean Sea during the Golden Age of Piracy in the early 18th century, with three major cities consisting of Havana, Nassau and Kingston.
    Land and navigation
    About 60% of the game will take place on land; players can explore 50 locations ranging from fisherman villages, plantations, jungles, forts, islands, Mayan ruins and exotic Coconut Islands. Other activities include hunting, harpooning and exploring underwater environments. The game aims to blend between its land and aquatic experiences seamlessly, to the point where players can simply dive off Edward's ship, swim to the shore and explore the land, as well as dive under the surface to loot underwater ship wrecks. Ubisoft also mentioned that 'exploration is the key' and would be the focus point in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
    Combat system
    Black Flag's combat has been upgraded to include free aiming. While previous installments relied on the game's built-in auto aim, in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, players will be able to just aim and fire, similar to third-person shooters.
    Dual-wielding weapons has also been implemented, with Edward being able to carry four flintlock pistols and be able to use them all together, chaining up to four gunshots into a combo of attacks to take down more enemies. Aside from the pistols and his Hidden Blade, Edward can equip dual cutlass swords and chain their attacks together. Other weapons include a blowpipe with multiple effected projectiles and rope darts. Stealth system has been stated to return and to be encouraged in the game. Full-on underwater combat system has also been developed for Black Flag, including animals such as sharks and whales
    Naval combat and Sea
    The game will also include naval combat, with 40% of the story taking place on the water, which includes numerous side missions. After checking out a ship with Edward's spyglass from the Jackdaw's crow's nest and evaluating the information and statistics, players can launch an attack using various scenarios; one can simply shoot the opposing captain, board the ship by leaping from mast-to-mast and performing an air assassination, or charge into the fray to cut down the foe using Edward's swords. Players will also be able to exploit weather patterns, luring the opposition into less than ideal conditions such as dynamic storms, to their advantage. Naval combat also features a trajectory-based aiming system that requires knowledge of distance and the speed of an enemy
    Upgrades
    Players will also be able to upgrade Edward Kenway's vessel – the Jackdaw – through pillaging, taking over enemy ships and completing missions, granting the Jackdaw with new weapons and abilities. Of these, weapon upgrades include round shot, heat shot, chain shot, mines, mortars, swivel guns and a ram. Edward can recruit crew-members for the Jackdaw via side missions that include bar fights, and most importantly, through the battle missions, but the crew members are also expected to die in the game while braving storms and boarding enemy ships, forcing Edward to continuously recruit more members. The crew themselves can also be upgraded with new outfits, allowing for even more customization. The game will also have six different enemy archetypes at sea that all behave in vastly different ways and require the player to have different upgrades to deal with them.
    Other such as characters
    Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will include many historical figures such as Benjamin Hornigold, Calico Jack, Anne Bonny, and Charles Vane along with Blackbeard.
    The notoriety system, which has been implemented in all previous Assassin's Creed games, has also been taken out of the gameplay for Black Flag.

    The new "Horizon" open-world system will dynamically create side missions, such as merchant ships to rob, whales to hunt or pirates to rescue, dependant on an individual's playing style.

    Consoles and marketing
    Assasain Creed IV: Black Flag will be available to all current gen and next gen consoles. Ubisoft has confirmed that, as with its predecessor Assassin's Creed III, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will have an additional 60 minutes of downloadable gameplay for Sony's current-gen and next-gen consoles.

    I'm liking some little implementations such as dual wielding, but not sure I'm as stoked about naval combat and being more focused on the sea. I loved being on land most of the time and the water sections were just extras to me. I'm just curious to see how it plays out being a main focus due to the new pirate theme. Thanks for the info though.
