A Closer Look at the Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Map

Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is hitting shelves this October 29th and members of the guild are shouting yo ho! In ACIV: BF You'll sail as Captain Edward Kenway on your vessel, Jackdaw, and ravage the Caribbean in 1715. In the Golden Age of piracy you'll spend forty percent of the game on the water with many cannon battles. The game will feature three main cities; Havana, Kingston, and Nassau, which reside under Spanish, English and pirate influence respectively.
 Players will be able to experience the true Assassin's Creed with a more non-linear approach to completing missions and objectives. Assassin's will be prompted with many different options to overcome their quests.
The player will encounter jungles, forts, ruins and small villages and the world is being built to allow players much more freedom, such as allowing players to engage, board, and capture passing ships and swimming to nearby beaches in a seamless fashion.In addition, the hunting system has been retained from Assassin's Creed III, allowing the player to hunt on land, and harpoon in the water.

Your ship, the Jackdaw, will be a very important upgradable character throughout the game. With Captain Kenway at your fingertips you can now explore the depths of the ocean in a new underwater experience added to the series. The player will also have access to a spyglass, similiar to the camera of Far Cry 3, that will let the player examine details of distant ships, such as their cargo and strength, and help determine if an island still has animals to hunt, treasures or high points to climb. Kenway will also be able to recruit assassins and crew as Ezio once did in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.

Enjoy the screenshots and how current gen and next gen versions will differ.
