Product Description

Exclusively for the PS4 version of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag:

Aveline, the first leading female Assassin who headlined Assassin’s Creed III Liberation on the Sony PlayStation Vita system, returns in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag with three missions exclusively on PS4 systems.

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.

Welcome to the Golden Age of Piracy.

Key Features

  • A BRASH REBEL ASSASSIN – Become Edward Kenway, a charismatic yet brutal pirate captain, trained by Assassins. Edward can effortlessly switch between the Hidden Blade of the Assassin’s Order and all new weaponry including four flintlock pistols and dual cutlass swords.

I was relatively late to Assassins Creed Black Flag - I had played the previous Assassins Creed on PS3 and hated it - I just couldn't get into the game and thought the combat was just button mashing.

So it was with some trepidation that I ordered this game after reading favourable reviews, and I'm so glad I did!

I enjoyed the first island you are on, and it's one of those rare games where you want to 100% complete all the side missions and tasks - something that took me a while to do, and I was just starting to think "is this it?" when suddenly I had managed to steal a ship and there was a huge open world to discover - amazing!

This added so much more gameplay - piracy, sea battles, buried treasure... the list goes on. There's also a very engaging storyline to follow too, as well as notes and documents to find which give more information on the world you are playing in.

I've sunk (see what I did there?) so many hours into this and still only scratched the surface, but enjoyed myself immensely and am greatly looking forward to the next.

And a quick word about the sea shanties - brill! Sit down with a rum and coke and sail to an island whilst your crew sing hearty shanties - it's quite fantastic detail and makes the world come alive.

I'd seriously recommend this - it will keep you occupied for many, many hours!

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag is a great game that you will love. I have played most of the Assassin Creed games but this one may be the best.

The game takes the concepts within Assassin's Creed world and puts them into a pirate adventure game. The game does an amazing job of interjecting some history as well into the game. The game features historical characters like Blackbeard and Benjamin Hornigold. Beside the history, the game looks great.

The pirates within the game are not cartoon versions like the ones we see on tv. The game goes to painstaking efforts to make the story grounded within reality. The game look amazing and has tons to do within the game. Their is alot of content within the game, including exploring island and having your own pirate crews. The even acts differently based on the decisions you make, this includes singing different songs based on the bounty you collect. This is a great game that you should pick up.

Thank you for reading my review, if you have any questions feel free to email me, I would be happy to help you with any questions you have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game 14 Jun. 2014
Platform for Display:PlayStation4| Edition:Skull Edition|Verified Purchase
The game is really good, and the story line is very entertaining. I have spent hours and hours on this and I am still only at around 28% complete. The metal case edition is very classy and looks good on my bookcase :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game, beautiful package and content 14 Mar. 2014
Platform for Display:PlayStation4| Edition:Skull Edition|Verified Purchase
Fantastic game, great controls, really nice graphics and sound.

The game itself is fairly easy to follow for a newcomer to the Assassin's Creed saga that has never played any previous title and has no interest in previous time periods, I love pirate related themes and this nails it.

The package Skull Edition package is really well thought out, the best part being the full CD soundtrack, the lovely art book and Litho cards. The extra content is a nice addition for the single player portion of the game.

I held off buying this whilst it sat at about £65, saw it drop to £44 for the PS4 edition and couldn't resist, well and truely worth every penny!

Highly recommended!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Game of the Year - Definitely for the PS4 :) 18 Dec. 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation4| Edition:Skull Edition|Verified Purchase
If your looking for an open free-roam game (for the next gen consoles) I can definitely recommend this one. Brilliant from start to finish, the story is in-depth yet the scale is massive, you can not only do assassination's but do many activities such as explore, hunt animals, command large ships and customise the character and ships full appearance etc.

Personally I thought Assassin's creed 3 (the previous title) was bad but this is 10000 times better with a decent soundtrack to accompany the epic voyages.

Use of the touchpad on PS4: Use it to place markers on the map it is very smooth and fast with the touchpad.

I got the Black Skull Edition and I love the downloadable content and extras that came with it such as a massive steelbook case and the soundtrack (very nice indeed).
(Amazon do lower the prices every so often for it so keep and eye on it if you are considering it but I would definitely say that it is a worthwhile buy).

Thanks for reading
