Two New Glimpses of Assassin’s Creed‘s Heroine in Black Flag

Two New Glimpses of Assassin's Creed‘s Heroine in Black Flag

We found out last month that Aveline, the star of Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, would return in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, but only on PlayStation. Ubisoft has now shared a couple of screens of her in action and explains how exploring her memories fits with the game’s larger narrative.

For starters, Aveline will age. Her missions in Black Flag are “not directly related to the end of her story,” said Darby McDevitt, the game’s lead writer. Her appearance will provide about one more hour of content, the game’s director says.

Again, there won’t be an anchor character accessing her memories (like Desmond Miles). There wasn’t one in Liberation, either. The metastory will approach Aveline as an Abstergo fishing expedition among the genetic memories of a bunch of different people. “The present-day is set in Abstergo Entertainment – which is this fun, hip company to work for… at first,” McDevitt said. This folds in with earlier revelations that Black Flag would do away with anchor characters and the exploration of the past would be done from the perspective of a researcher.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will release on Oct. 29. The Aveline missions will be available only on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, once that console arrives.

Darksiders 2 and Assassin’s Creed 3 Wii U vs Xbox 360 comparisons

Assassin’s Creed 3 looks pretty much the same, while Darksiders 2 has some difference between the two editinos.

We recently posted a comparison between the Call of Duty Black Ops 2 Wii U version and the Xbox 360/PS3 version. Suffice to say, the difference wasn’t that big, in fact, the games looked nearly identical.

Now we got a few more comparison videos. This time, the Darksiders 2 Wii U version is compared to the Xbox 360, and so is Assassin’s Creed 3.

Darksiders 2 shows some difference between the two versions, and it appears that the Xbox 360 has more details and shorter loading times. However, the textures and draw distance on the Wii U seem to be better.

Assassin’s Creed 3

Assassin’s Creed 3 looks pretty much identical. This is on par with what Ubisoft has been saying for a while: that all versions will look the same.
