For instance, the naval combat of Assassin’s Creed 3 was one of the most praised gameplay mechanics featured in the game, but it was never used as anything other than a cheap mini-game. Assassin’s Creed 4: Black flag will be making naval combat a more important piece of combat that the game will center around more. Personally, I hope they stay true to the word that they will be bringing back the open city traversing feel that previous games have brought to the table. For me, those were the most critical aspects that made previous installments of Assassin’s Creed enjoyable.
In addition to uncertainty around how the Assassins Creed 4 release date will go, there is also the question as to how effectively the game will utilize these next generation consoles. Given that they are undoubtedly stronger than previous iterations, what new features will these consoles allow for the Assassin’s Creed franchise? What benefits will these new consoles offer over previous ones – why should I play Assassin’s Creed on a PS4 over a XB1 or even my PC? All this and more are things I’m extremely curious in learning before the Assassins Creed 4 release date.
All in all, it really seems like the Assassins Creed 4 release date will be a revitalizing moment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise. Ubisoft seems to be breathing new life into a series which has, admittedly, begun to feel stale after so many installments. I have high hopes that the Assassins Creed 4 release date brings the game back to a place where everyone can enjoy it and praise it like they did when the first Assassin’s Creed game came out so many years ago.
