Review: Assassin's Creed IV: Freedom Cry
by Chris Carter

Assassin's Creed IV was quite the ride. Bringing new meaning to the phrase "a pirate's life for me," it was such a step up from the third entry that many fans are now clamoring for a full-on pirate spinoff series.

Honestly? I wouldn't mind that one bit, so long as it was every other year -- Black Flag was that good. Until that day comes however you can enjoy an additional campaign compliments of Edward's former Quartermaster.

AC:IV DLC trailer remembers the concept of freedom

While the Assassin's Creed IV main story focused on a protagonist who was concerned about the pirate life and accumulating wealth, the single player DLC explores a more moving subject -- social justice. Of course, such ...

The Assassin's Creed IV artbook is beautiful

Black Flag was quite the Assassin's Creed game. Scratch that -- it was quite the pirate simulator, that often times made us forget that it was part of the up and down franchise that so many people have given up on o...

Review: Assassin's Creed: Pirates

When Black Flag was first announced, it never really hit me at how great an open-world pirate game could really be. Since so many past iterations were comfortable with walling off players in mini-sandboxes rather than letting them run free, Assassin's Creed IV really scratched that itch so many people had been longing for.

The mobile spinoff Assassin's Creed: Pirates doesn't offer that same sense of freedom, but it captures the essence of sailing around causing general debauchery just fine. You'll spend the entire game in your ship, but if you loved that aspect of Assassin's Creed IV, you're probably going to like Pirates.

Ubisoft survey gauges interest in non-AC pirate game

IGN has gotten its hands on a Ubisoft survey that covers what players want out of the future of the Assassin's Creed series. More interesting than that, however, is talk of a theoretical non-AC pirate game, with questions abo...

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!

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...
