  • News Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Harpoons a Gigantic Patch on PS4

    It's a big one, captain

    That standard 500GB PlayStation 4 hard drive isn't going to last much longer with huge game installs and updates as big as this one. Weighing in at 2.3GB, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag's latest patch is a beast, but thankfully it isn't a big load of nothing. The download fixes numerous issues - some of which have been...

  • News You Don't Need to Copy Edward Kenway's Clothing to Enjoy PS4


    We’ve all been there: you’ve got half an eye on the holidays, but technically you’re still at work. This brand new PlayStation 4 trailer uploaded to SCEE’s official YouTube page earlier today looks like it was hastily constructed prior to an office Christmas party. And now we’re writing a really dull post about it in order to...

  • News Ubisoft Shipping 1080p Patch for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag on PS4

    Polishing up the telescope

    The frustratingly dubbed ‘resolution-gate’ is showing no signs of coming to a conclusion. Following reports that revealed that Call of Duty: Ghosts would require a patch to up its resolution to 1080p on the PlayStation 4, Ubisoft has now confirmed that the same applies to Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Set sail in...

  • News Wait, Sony's Released Another Weird PS4 Viral Teaser Trailer?

    Dressed by the Creed

    We’re no closer to solving the mystery of last week’s bizarre ‘Hadouken Cabs’ teaser trailer, but it seems that Sony’s making a habit out of deploying these vaguely video game related commercials. This latest spot – discovered by IGN – focuses on 'E. Kenway and Sons Bespoke Tailors', and includes imagery from the...

  • News Ubisoft Casts Assassin's Creed IV's Uplay Passport Overboard

    Fish food

    Online passes have been more or less ditched by all of the industry’s major publishers at this point, but Ubisoft curiously opted to cling onto the outdated practice for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Fortunately, following an inevitable online backlash, the publisher has decided to force the title's controversial unlock key to walk...

  • News Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Trailer Defies the Odds

    Horrible histories

    Ubisoft has released roughly 10,000 Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag trailers to date, so we suppose that another one won’t hurt. This snippet plots protagonist Edward Kenway’s path from free-loving rogue to seafaring savage. In addition to the video, the publisher’s also brought the date of the game forward in the UK,...

    No way to game the system

    Assuming that you have about as much patience as a Venus flytrap, you’ll be able to buy some of this year’s biggest PlayStation 3 games safe in the knowledge that it will only cost you $9.99/£9.99 to upgrade to the PlayStation 4 version. However, as part of a detailed explanation on the PlayStation Blog, Sony clarified...

  • News Glug Some Grog with the Cast of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

    Drunk on dialects

    Our overseas readers will do well to study this brand new Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag video, as it very much provides a crash course on the various British accents. Acting as an introduction to the game’s main cast, the footage features an Englishman, a Scotsman, and a Welshman. All we need now is an Irishman, and we’ve...

    Growing pains

    You know that you’ve got a problem when the protagonist of your spin-off game is more interesting than the hero in your main release. That was certainly the case for Assassin’s Creed III, as PlayStation Vita star Aveline de Grandpré was infinitely more engaging than dreary Connor. Fortunately, publisher Ubisoft’s set to wrap up...

  • E3 2013 Aveline's Story Will Continue in Assassin's Creed IV

    But only on PlayStation

    We’ll let you in on a secret: we don’t actually remember what happened at the end of Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation. All that we really recall is that the PlayStation Vita exclusive got so bogged down in its own pseudo-science fiction that it prompted us to describe the storyline as “incomprehensible” in our...
