We already know more or less how Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is going to be. After all, we've had plenty of time and games to prepare ourselves. This is, however, the first of the series to be on next-gen consoles, and in the newest video, associate producer Sylvain Trottier shows us what a difference it makes.
Fortunately, Assassin's Creed is one of those games that really allows us to sit back and enjoy the sights. You're in an open world that isn't constantly under siege. The new video just highlights some of that, showing how Ubisoft used the new tech to create more realistic oceans, dynamic weather, ambient lighting, and more seamless transition scenes -- such as boarding a ship.
