Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag for PC Review

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag for PC Review

In Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag you've got a game that can be wholly enjoyed by a hardcore fan of the series just as well as a newcomer. Here you've got the roots of the beast in assassin's hood and the feined interest in surprising and sneaking around at the same time as you've got a brand new jump-in point for anyone interested in that all-encompassing childhood wish to be a pirate. Ubisoft has created a masterpiece of the modern age of relatively-open sandbox gameplay tied closely with the next-level graphics finesse afforded them by NVIDIA - every bit as spectacular as we saw in demo form earlier this year up in Montreal.

Ubisoft kicks Watch Dogs release back to 2014

It would appear that the folks at Ubisoft aren't entirely ready to roll out their titles Watch Dogs and The Crew just yet, as they've pushed the titles back from the 2013-14 season to 2014-15 instead.
