Ubisoft has provided us a glimpse into the ever-popular multiplayer mode that will be continued the newest iteration of the Assassin's Creed series, IV Black Flag. The first characters unveiled so far are the unsettling Dandy and masked Puppeteer, shown below.
For those unfamiliar with the newest addition to the legendary series, this installation will tell the story of Edward Kenway. A young British man with a thirst for danger and adventure, he falls from privateering for the Royal Navy into piracy as the war between the major Empires comes to an end. You may remember his mentions in Assassin's Creed III, in which he is revealed to be father of Haytham Kenway.
Multiplayer this time around will have some interesting new features to entice players, including the ability to create your own game experience with the new Game Lab. Choose from different abilities, rules, and bonuses to make a game, and play and share with friends. We'll also see a new lineup of pirate characters, including those above.
