At a recent visit to Abstergo Entertainment to look at Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag I had the opportunity to talk all things AC4 with Jean-Sebastien Decant and Darby McDevitt from Ubisoft.


The year is 1715. Pirates rule the Caribbean and have established their own lawless Republic where corruption, greediness and cruelty are commonplace.

Among these outlaws is a brash young captain named Edward Kenway. His fight for glory has earned him the respect of legends like Blackbeard, but also drawn him into the ancient war between Assassins and Templars, a war that may destroy everything the pirates have built.

Darby McDevitt is the Lead Writer for AC4 and Jean-Sebastien Decant is the Lead Game Designer .

In the interview we talk about AC4 and it's inspiration, we reveal a spoiler for AC3 (for those who still haven't finished it) and we talk about the present day elements, amongst a few other things, and there is a lot of brand new gameplay thrown in too!


Over to Jean-Sebastien and Darby:

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag will be released November 1st on Xbox 360, PS3 and WiiU. It is also coming on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
