Assassin’s Creed 4 will ‘give pirates the HBO reality treatment’, isn’t for kids says Ubisoft

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flags is going to tell a real, gritty and thoroughly entertaining pirate story, Ubisoft’s lead content manager Carsten Myhill has said. The team is thinking along the lines of big production value and high drama, much like an HBO television series.

Speaking with MCV, Myhill set out his team’s stall for Assassin’s Creed 4, “We have a fantastic opportunity for pirates in video games. Certainly when Assassin’s Creed III naval came out, there was a clamour from the fans for a pirate game. There’s no doubt that the people want it.

“But it’s not easy. It takes a very talented team, a lot of experience and great tech. It’s one thing having good naval combat, but combining that with good boarding and land-based gameplay in a seamless way, is hard to do.

“We’re staying away from cliches. Things like walking the plank, parrots on the shoulder and hooks for hands. We are giving pirates the HBO, reality treatment. And that allows us to redefine piracy in entertainment. No longer is it for kids.”

We’ve already seen protagonist Edward Kenway walking away from a threesome in the Assassin’s Creed 4 trailer, and engaging in plenty of violent fights, so perhaps the game will be darker than the rest of the series.
