Patriot’s Playing: Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag

Patriot's Playing

Over the course of the last several days, a number of big release titles have dropped.

Friday saw the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

Yesterday, Fallout 4 and the currently Xbox One exclusive Rise of the Tomb Raider released.

I’m not playing any of that though (I’ll get to Fallout 4 soon enough). Right now I’m doing my first PS4 play-through of a great entry in my favorite franchise.

I’m playing Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.

I played, beat, and loved Black Flag on my PS3. I’ve had the PS4 version just about a year and haven’t done much with it, simply because I was playing stuff that I hadn’t already beat.

I’ll be getting into Assassin’s Creed Syndicate soon, so I wanted to go back and play through both Black Flag and Unity again. Naturally started with Black Flag.

I’ve gotten Platinum trophies for most of the PS3 Assassin Creed Games, but Black Flag I never got. It’s the first Assassin’s Creed game that I didn’t 100% the single player stuff.

So now that I’m getting into it again on PS4, I’m going to 100% (and I’m talking in game progression, not PSN trophies). This isn’t something I care to platinum, because I have no desire to play the multiplayer to level five much less 55.

This time around though I do plan on finally fully upgrading the Jackdaw and taking out the four legendary ships.

I’d just about forgotten how much fun sailing around and bombarding other ships was. It certainly helps that the game looks amazing on PS4 (of course it looked good on PS3 too),

I started from a new game save, so I’m still early into it. I haven’t even become captain of the Jackdaw yet, but I’m pretty close to that point.

Ideally, I’ll get this wrapped up before the end of the month, and then spend December working on getting 100% in Unity.

I’ve also played some Dragon Age: Inquisition (hit a frustrating wall there), started up a new game on The Witcher 3, and of course I’m still playing a little Destiny here and there.

So, what games are you playing this week? Be sure to let me know in the comments below, although I’ll assume Fallout 4 for most of you.
