New Black Flag Screens Show Off The Present-Day Motif

For those who are unfamiliar, the storyline and setting in the Assassin's Creed games can be a little confusing.

Thing is, the real main character has always been Desmond, who exists in the modern day period. He revisits the adventures of his ancestors (thus far, Altair, Ezio and Connor) and obviously, we spend the vast majority of our time playing as those ancestors. But the modern-day era was more prominently featured in ACIII, and we may see more of that in this year's Black Flag.

A batch of new screenshots for the game shows off Abstergo Entertainment, which is a new division of Abstergo Industries. This is the pharmaceutical company that's a front for the seriously bad dudes who are part of the Templars. These are work-in-progress screenshots but you get the idea. Check AllGamesBeta for all the pics; we've got two of 'em right here.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is set to launch for current-generation consoles on October 29. The next-gen versions will arrive when the PS4 and Xbox One hit store shelves. Date TBA...

Is Adam Sandler, I mean Desmond, in this one or has he completed his arc?

Good riddance is all I'll say. Never had a shred of liking of him...

Ok, that's harsh, but I still didn't like him.
