The lights are on
Last year at E3, Ubisoft surprised the world with the reveal of full-fledged naval combat in Assassin's Creed III. While beautiful and entertaining, commanding a boat was limited to relatively brief and isolated missions. With Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, the team at Ubisoft Montreal is blowing out that core concept and fully embracing a seamless world ready to be explored.
Watch the video below to hear the game's director, writer, and art director talk about the variety of the setting, the new systems in place such as boarding, and why they hope you'll fall in love with your ship called the Jackdaw.

This game looks like episode 5 of Sly 3. That's a very good thing.
Game sounds interesting now trying to save 65 bucks again for October jeez
Will they finally stop with this "aliens from the future" nonsense? Then I might be interested.
They should have went with a present day one
you think they would focus on fixing AC3 first. On xbox 360 at least horse riding is impossible which would not be an issue if it wasn't required and targeting is nonexistent
hey will you guys take a survey for my english 102 class please? I need people to fill it out www.surveymonkey.com/.../ZMWGQNK
I'm not even excited for this, but if this game actually turns out to be good, I might consider getting it.
I'm excited & already want to see some gameplay.
I like the idea of blocked content based on the strength of ships. An open-world pirate game just sounds so awesome. This really does seem like it could function as its own pirate IP, but it sounds like it should fit within the world of Assassin's Creed.
