Last year at E3, Ubisoft surprised the world with the reveal of full-fledged naval combat in Assassin's Creed III.

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.
