Impressions: Assassin's Creed IV (Xbox One and PS4)

Assassin's Creed IV, point blank, may be the best game in the series outside of AC II. It offers the least amount of real-world trappings for those fans who dislike the sci-fi overarching plot and it features the only true op...

This Assassin's Creed IV glitch is totally next-gen

Before you watch this video, know that you're more or less obligated to enjoy it. A lot of good men died for this glitch. If you can't squeeze a paltry morsel of pleasure out of it, then they died in vain, and you're a monster. A monster that deserves to be banished to the depths of wherever the hell the Jackdaw just came from.

You can now play Assassin's Creed IV in 1080p on PS4

Ubisoft has given out notice that the promised Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag update for 1080p and better anti-aliasing is now available for download on PlayStation 4. It's still something of a shock to my system that such functionality has to come in the form of a title update, but when RAM requirements are being lowered through patches, anything's possible!

Ubisoft explains how launch games can be underwhelming

It's always about the games when it comes to the console, and with the release of the new systems, it's easy to take for granted how much effort goes into the making of the titles. For many, the games available at launch can ...

Assassin's Creed IV PS4 needs a patch for 1080p

Here I was, thinking that Infinity Ward's day-one Call of Duty: Ghosts PlayStation 4 patch for native 1080p output was a fluke. Ubisoft will have a similar update coming "shortly after release" for the PS4 version of Assassin...

New PlayStation 4 video is all about a pirate tailor

Sony is releasing some weird videos lately. First there was this cab thing, and now we have a pirate tailor from Assassin's Creed IV. I have no idea why this is a thing. When you see pirate clothing, does that make you want to buy a PlayStation 4? If anything, it makes me want to get a nice ruffled shirt.

Review: Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Another year, another Assassin's Creed.

Ubisoft hasn't shown any signs of slowing down on annual releases for the series, despite handily finishing its main story arc. Correctly identifying the best innovation of Assassin's Creed III as its naval combat, this latest title incorporates it as the defining feature and centers the narrative around pirate adventure in the early 18th century.
