PS4 Game News: Assassin's Creed 4 PlayStation 4 Gameplay (Video)

As the Assassin's Creed 4 release date approaches, hype surrounding Black Flag is nearing a fever pitch, particularly regarding the PS4 edition. Fortunately, Ubisoft was kind enough to participate in Sony's latest episode of "Conversations with Creators" and sent Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag creative director Jean Guesdon and associate producer Sylvain Trottier to talk shop.

The Assassin's Creed 4 release date is still a few months off, on Oct. 29, but in the meantime, the developer interview offers some enticing insights as well as a few new frames of gameplay footage.

Though nobody outside Ubisoft (to the best of our knowledge) has actually gotten to play Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag on the PS4 yet, Guesdon and Trottier do a good job explaining what fans can expect from the next-gen title (video via Kotaku).

"First thing that is going to change drastically [in Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag] is the graphics. We think that visually with a stronger GPU, stronger CPU, a lot of RAM, we're going to be able to exploit a lot with this console and push the bar visually," said Trottier. "All these new techs that we're pushing are natively fitting in the ps4. All little details that you can't right now put on the current generation of consoles because the console is running at 100 percent right now."

While the graphics for Assassin's Creed 4 on PS4 will invariably be drool-inducing, Black Flag will stand out in terms of gameplay mechanics and the sheer processing power of the PlayStation 4 should allow for some radically new possibilities.

"Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag will merge ground gameplay and naval gameplay so you will be able totally seamlessly, without any loading, to go from your ship to ground, from ground to ship and from ship to ship," said Guesdon.
