Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag – A Pirates Life Trailer

Published

 on

Ubisoft have once again released a new trailer for the upcoming and most anticipated Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag and once again it looks awesome.

Assassin’s Creed 4 seems to be looking to get back to its roots as a franchise, which is great, as several – including myself – felt that Assassin’s Creed 3 was a bit of a let down. The failings of Assassin’s Creed 3 seem to be more than made up for however, by the looks of this amazing 3 minute trailer.

Black Flag is out on the 1st of November. You can pre-order now. Let us know what you’re looking forward to most!

Animal Farm Developer Talks Challenges of Adaptation

Published

Animal Farm

While details of the upcoming Animal Farm game remain scant, one of the key developers, Imre Jele, has opened up about the process of adapting George Orwell’s classic text.

Jele took to the stage during University College London’s recent event ‘Rebel? Prophet? Relic? Perspectives on George Orwell in 2019’ to discuss the inspirations and challenges the team has faced. While no transcript of the talk is available, sources from the event took to Twitter to share some of Jele’s insights.

Perhaps most notable is the statement (via the event’s official Twitter page) that “We didn’t want Animal Farm in space—we just wanted Animal Farm, as it was in the text.” This desire separates the project from other adaptations such as Dante’s Inferno or American McGee’s Alice that take considerable liberties with their source material. At the same time, the political nature of the book means that the game should offer more than simple entertainment:

However, these goals are complicated by the fact that, according to Jele (via The Orwell Foundation) that the team is “constantly encountering the problem: at what point in the story would Orwell allow the the reader—the player—to make choices?”

Jele also discussed his own history with the book, which he first experienced as a child in Russian-occupied Hungary, and how it related to his family’s political opinions.

The game was first announced almost two years ago and described as an “adventure-tycoon” experience, though relatively few concrete details have yet been made available. At present, only a PC launch is confirmed with consoles a possibility, while no release window has been announced.
