1w ago - Ubisoft Annecy Community Developer Valentin Pasquier-Desvignes announced news today on The Flying Dutchman: Assassin's Creed IV's Second Multiplayer Event.
Below are the details, to quote: Since our first Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag multiplayer event, Under Control, we've seen the AC4 community continue to grow. So we've got a new one: The Flying Dutchman!
Starting this Friday, 11/29 and going through Sunday, 12/1, assassins across the community will compete to capture Artifacts and bring them back to their base in a special Artifact Assault mode (we've got the breakdown on the specific rules below).
During the duration of the event, you'll be provided with objectives to complete, and each of these objectives will unlock exclusive content.
In this event, Artifact Assault mode will deactivate melee kills, so your only way to kill will be to take aim with the deadly pistol. Team play is mandatory to deliver the artifact to your base, so strategize to support your carrier using Sabotage, and prevent your enemies from using their ranged Pistol attacks!
In addition to the new mode, you'll have specific objectives with their own rewards to challenge yourself with. Some are individual goals, and others are a wider community goal; check out the breakdown below:...
5w ago - Ubisoft Annecy Community Developer Valentin Pasquier-Desvignes announced that Assassin's Creed IV's first PS3 multiplayer event is dubbed Under Control.
To quote: Starting this Friday and through the entire weekend, join the Assassin's Creed multiplayer community in "Under Control", the first of a series of Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag multiplayer events where you will work together with your fellow Assassins and Templars to get everyone special in-game prizes!
For "Under Control", you will need to play Domination games and pile up territory captures with our most aristocratic characters: the Huntsman, the Puppeteer, the Dandy and the Duelist.
For the uninitiated, Domination games will have you and your team working together to capture territories and defend them from the opposing team to score. The team who fills the scoring gauge or obtains the highest score at the end of the countdown wins.
For this first multiplayer event, we'll be providing community objectives to get awesome in-game prizes. Starting Friday, you can check out the events section in-game to find out what the current community objectives are.
Outside of the community objectives, you'll find a number of things you can win even before reaching the community objective. For instance, you get...

7w ago - Spry Fox Chief Creative Officer Daniel Cook shared details today on how unexpected life events inspired Road Not Taken on PS Vita and PS4.
To quote: There is a repeated theme in our upcoming game, Road Not Taken, which we announced here back in August. The characters in our little northern town have all lived their lives according to the same plan: first you go to school, then you get a job, then you fall in love and finally you start a family.
But life doesn't always work out that way.
I grew up expecting to live a very traditional Norman Rockwell-style life. We had a little house on a lovely winding road in rural Maine. I did well in school; checked all the official checkboxes. Then upon entering the real world, things fell apart.
On the job front, I've been through multiple careers. My "safe" job at a large stable employer - the sort of job many people dream about - well, that was an incredibly bad fit for me.
I've joined sketchy start-ups that failed. And some that succeeded. I've been fired for idly drawing pictures of planes inserted into bums. I've been hired at double the salary because (as I learned later) I wore the right type of hat to the interview.
I live in a tiny condo in a big city, not a house in the suburbs. There...
