Ubisoft had made it pretty clear the other day that the Assassin’s Creed series would be making a big step forward with the fourth main entry of the franchise. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be focused on the Naval aspects of the game, being set in the Golden Age Of Piracy, also featuring a lot of new gameplay elements outside the naval aspect.
One of the goal of the team was to create a true open world setting: in past Assassin’s Creed games the whole game map was split in different locations so it wasn’t a single free to explore map but several. The new Assassin’s Creed world will finally be a single map and fully available from the beginning, making the game a true naval open world game.
To help players immerse in such a vast world, Ubisoft has confirmed today that the game won’t have any load time: the feature was thought out primarily for the next gen versions of the game but this feature will also get included in the current gen versions of the game. This will allow players to truly travel the game’s map freely, making them feel part of the world they’re playing in.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be released on October 29 on Ps3, Ps4, Pc, Wii U, Xbox 360 and the yet to be unveiled next gen Microsoft console.
