    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 Current Sales of Assassin's Creed IV and Battlefield 4 Are Dead in the Water

    Next-gen may not be to blame

    It should come as no surprise that the current-gen versions of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Battlefield 4 are not selling as well as previous entries. After all, who wants to buy a game on an ageing console when they can wait a few weeks for the superior next-gen version? But a recent report from MCV reveals that...

    Walk the plank

    Those of you that choose to sail the seven seas in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag on the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 3 will not only be able to step into the baggy trousers and boots of Edward Kenway and Aveline de Grandpré – but also a new shipmate named Adewale.

  • 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.

    "Shiver me timbers, it's freezing"

    While the live gameplay demo for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag may have sunk like a great galleon during Sony’s press conference earlier in the week, this pre-recorded offering at least allows you to experience the full sequence without the cut-scenes crashing. We appreciate the requests for the series to...

  • Rumour Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag May Set Sail on PS4 in October

    Creative director spills the grog

    We don’t have a firm release date for the PlayStation 4 yet, which means that the timing of any software is also being kept under wraps.
