I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

Ubisoft Moves Beyond Desmond In Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag

Posted on Monday, March 4 @ 15:50:00 Eastern by

We went straight to the source to learn everything we could about Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag and the first thing on our minds was whether a modern-day story would be told to match the arc of Edward Kenyway in the Carribean.

Producer Martin Schelling and Game Director Ashraf Ismail had the answers and they revealed that you would actually be playing as yourself in light of Desmond's finale in Assassin's Creed III. The feud between the Templars and the Assassins isn't over and instead the Templars are attempting a new method of manipulation in the form of Abstergo Entertainment, a subsidiary of Abstergo Industries.

"Desmond's story is over and the new present day hero is you." Schelling explained. "Animus technology has advanced and now you're able to enter another person's ancestral memory." That's how our new present-day protagonist is able to explore the Kenway family's history in the new game.

Edward Kenway is involved in something very important to the Templars and that's why you've been hired to dig deeper into the Carribean narrative. Of course the Assassins will come into play later in the game, but the developers weren't ready to talk about that just yet.
