The lights are on
While the gut reaction when seeing an Assassin's Creed game set during the golden age of piracy is to assume the team looked to the Pirates of the Caribbean for inspiration, but the team at Ubisoft Montreal is going for a much more grounded approach for Black Flag. With inspirations ranging from classical paintings to Far Cry 3, we spoke to the game's director, writer, and art director about the multi-media fuel that helped build the next Assassin's Creed game.
Watch the video below to hear the team talk about what they learned from titles like Red Dead Redemption, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, and much more.

I'd be alot more compelled if they removed the sci-fi story element that's plaguing the previous games. damn that's an immersion-breaker.
Do you mean inspired, not informed?
Must admit that the RDR influence, in particular, is getting me excited.
Definitely excited for this. Been wanting a good pirate game for a long time.
this might be good.. although.. depends what kind of story there is tho.. its been.. KINDA the same background plot to everything.. but assassin's creed III DID amaze me with some perspective to new things.. so im not a high expecting anything for this one here.. it just seems like a assassin's creed brotherhood to this new golden age of pirates.. :P
I got burned out on the series after Revelations.
That's really cool. Wind Waker actually never crossed my mind when I saw this announcement but it makes sense. I love that game though. Red Dead too. I'm liking where this game is going :D
With influenes like these this should amount to be a truly amazing experience. Can't wait.
But, but, but YARR!
