Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag Multiplayer Features [VID]
Ubisoft has released another Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag video, this one detailing the game’s multiplayer features.
Tim Brown, lead game designer for Black Flag’s multiplayer, walks us through the features. The game’s multiplayer includes both free-for-all and team-based game modes, including one named “Artifact Assault,” which is similar to traditional capture the flag — but with Assassin’s Creed flair sprinkled over it.
Players select Perks, such as the Blender perk, which creates an AI decoy of your character, or the Unstoppable perk, which lets you charge through crowds. Players also select from an array of Abilities, such as Disguise, which changes your appearance, or Time Phase, which slows down everything within a certain area except your character. Black Flag features nearly double the character customization options of AC4.
Black Flag introduces the Game Lab, wherein players build their own game modes with their own rules. Over 200 different elements can be tweaked; for instance, pistols may be the only permitted weapons, or stealth kills may be the only way to earn points.

Sadly, it seems there will be no naval combat. Future DLC, perhaps?
