Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag’s Lead Content Manager, Carsten Myhill, insists that “the scale, scope and breadth of new content in Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag earns the sequel the right to be a numbered entry in the franchise.”
The new Ubisoft game contains the notorious pirate Edward Kenway, who is the Grandfather of Assassin’s Creed 3: Protagonist Connor. It also promises players the ability to explore the Caribbean setting freely.
Myhill continues: “I don’t think it is
[similar] at all. It’s a pirate setting, we have a very different hero with a completely different personality to Connor. He’s a brash, boisterous, hard-drinking pirate. The whole feeling of the game is completely fresh and new. It will feel very different to Assassin’s Creed 3. I think it completely warrants the Assassin’s Creed 4 moniker, not only with the new name and setting, but the attitude and the tone of the experience.”
Myhill also said that: “We want to make it clear to fans, and those who haven’t played Assassin’s Creed before, that this is a pirate game. The ‘Black Flag’ is there, it says ‘hey, this is the HD, open-world action adventure pirate game you’ve been waiting for.'”
