New Screens Show Off The Present Day World

Yesterday, Ubisoft let Assassin's Creed lead writer Darby McDevitt loose on Twitter to answer questions about the modern Abstergo's role in Black Flag, and reveal some new screens.

Ubisoft summed up the Q and A session on its blog, which you can check out here. There are no flat-out, "Here's what happened in the end of Assassin's Creed III!" spoilers, but there is enough there to merit a warning if you haven't gotten around to finishing Connor's adventure, yet.

McDevitt said on Twitter that cluster and glyph puzzles have been replaced by hacking games. There will be a "handful" of present day missions taking place in Montreal, Quebec. They will will involve exploring, sneaking, eavesdropping, and hacking, but no combat. Clay A.K.A. Subject 16 will not be returning, but McDevitt teased something related to Subject 17.

When asked about Desmond and his connection to the main character of Black Flag, McDevitt replied, "You are the main character. Do you have any Miles’s in your family tree?"

The full posting contains more information, so be sure to check it out as long as you've completed Assassin's Creed III.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U on October 29, with PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions set for some time this year.

Thanks to Jeury Veloz for the news tip!

  • Every time an Assassin's Creed game has gotten closer to release after Assassin's Creed II my hopes have been raised and then let down. Not crushed, but let down. This time, I will go in with no expectations except that it will be on par with or better than the second installment.
  • The problem with these modern segments is that its just like Watch Dogs.

  • Nifty. Looks like you get quite the view from your loft. And it kinda looks like collectible figurines will be stored at your desk.

  • I was wondering how the present would tie into this entry.

  • my classmate's mother-in-law makes $62 an hour on the internet. She has been out of work for seven months but last month her check was $20763 just working on the internet for a few hours. Read more on this site

  • I will be enjoying this on PS4.
