AC4 Black Flag

Ubisoft released today a video highlighting technical advancements used in developing AC4 Black Flag. Take a look at how the game’s engine is able to control the movement and behavior of waves out on the high seas. Additionally, the weather system includes thousands of individual raindrops, with each rain particle being independently lit. Finally, the boarding system allows for two objects, such as pirate ships, to form a 3d map for players and NPCs to navigate through.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be available on PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U on October 29, with PC and next-gen consoles soon to follow.
