That's great, because the best parts of III were the ship battles
YES. YES YES VERY YES.
Please, please, please feature Devil Fruit abilities!
Drink up me hearties, Yoho.
Ok much better now it sounds Assassin's Creed material not One Piece - -
10 points to Matt for using the Black Flag logo.
What's next, Assassin's Creed: Dogfights? The series has an identity crisis.
Matt, please don't confuse me like that again.
Makes sense considering how well-received the naval segments were in AC3. While I am glad that a pirate game means more awesome ship warfare, I do hope at least half of the game keeps pushing the land-based combat forward.
Lol alright, so it's supposed to be along the lines of Pirates of the Caribbean. I'm more okay with that, those ship warfare and platform sequences were pretty fun in AC 3.
Maybe if they make it more about stealth and not just running in and killing 20 people at once.
I'm starting to wonder if the AC series is still worth pursuing... I'm getting kinda tired of it with all the yearly releases.
Wow, this is going way back in time.
The story is probably something along these lines. A pirate becomes an assassin and has to fight a rival pirate who is a Templar. Some naval combat will be involved and the modern story will be confusing as all hell.
love the implemented punk band black flag nod!
Sounds about right, since the ship mechanics in AC3 worked well. Might as well build the game around that concept.
Peter Pan and the Neverland Pirates will be on disc DLC. Sorry I have a three year old...
