Did You Know?


A certain document found on an Abstergo computer lists the time eras that Desmond had Assassin ancestors in. With many of these having been done (Crusades, Italian Reniassance), it is thought by players that the other periods listed will appear in future games. Their theories are supported by the fact that the French Revolution was on the list, and has been the setting of a game (Assassin's Creed: Unity (2014). See more »


In the present-day setting during the game one of the computers you hack shows Desmond Miles' ancestors through his mother and father. This report indicates that the first playable ancestor, Altair Ibn La-Ahad, comes from his mother's side. It shows the second one, Ezio Auditore Da Firenze, on his father's side. This contradicts the original statements made by Ezio and his uncle, Mario Auditore, in Assassin's Creed II that they were indeed descendants of Altair. This was either a mistake in writing or a change to the canon of the series. See more »

AC4 Brings New Life to the Franchise
18 March 2014 | by (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

Before this game, all previous Assassin's Creed games felt the same. It even made's top 10 most overrated games list due to Assassin's Creeds 1-3 all playing extremely similar. The latest installment, however, added a new feature that took up half the game. This feature, of course, is the Naval aspect. Fans got a taste of this in Assassin's Creed III, but it is nowhere near the level Of 4. Whether it's hunting sharks, collecting cargo, sailing to an island, seeking treasure or engaging in Naval Battles, sailing pirate ships in AC4 is an incredible and well polished gameplay mechanic. Aside from that, it also made the world feel more real, since you could almost all of the Caribbean sea. Not only is this a must have for any Assassin's Creed fan, but it's also a great game for new players to start, since the story no longer follows Desmond Miles.
