Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag 04 Mar 2013 | Nothing to do punk rock, Ubisoft announces another trip back into the Animus in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.
|PR: Ubisoft| Ubisoft has announced the next installment in Assassin’s Creed series. Titled, Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, we will get to meet a new hero and setting in what Ubisoft calls "the most diverse and seamless Assassin’s Creed world ever created."
Reassuring gamers that this is a quick turnout "one-off", the development cycle has been rolling for nearly two years - spearheaded by one of the veteran Assassin’s Creed teams in Ubisoft Montreal with support from Ubisoft studios in Annecy, Bucharest, Kiev, Quebec, Singapore and Sofia.
About our new Assassin Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag tells the story of Edward Kenway, a young British man with a thirst for danger and adventure, who falls from privateering for the Royal Navy into piracy as the war between the major Empires comes to an end. Edward is a fierce pirate and seasoned fighter who soon finds himself embroiled in the ancient war between Assassins and Templars. Set at the dawn of the 18th Century, the game features some of the most infamous pirates in history, such as Blackbeard and Charles Vane, and takes players on a journey throughout the West Indies during a turbulent and violent period of time later to become known as the Golden Age of Pirates.
Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is set to be released for the Xbox 360, Wii U, Windows, Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 on October 29, 2013.

New Halo Maps in December 29 Nov 2012 | Halo 4 is about to get the first of three Map Packs this December.
|Update| The first of three “Halo 4” War Games competitive multiplayer Map Packs hits Xbox LIVE on December 10 for 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE.
Titled Crimson, three new environments for you to wage battle on Xbox LIVE with friends, Wreckage- the manifestation of the chaos of war; Harvest- a canon concept brought to life – the doomed agricultural planet where humans first made contact with the Covenant, and Shatter- themed around natural crystalline surfaces and the huge UNSC factories mining them.
Map Descriptions • Wreckage: Wreckage is the manifestation of the chaos of war. A medium-sized, asymmetrical map great for accommodating a wide range of objective-based game modes including King of the Hill and Capture the Flag, it is a ravaged environment of crashed debris, where the surrounding destruction creates complex paths perfect for throwing off your opponents, or testing the limits of your Warthog.
• Harvest: Harvest is a canon concept brought to life – the doomed agricultural planet where humans first made contact with the Covenant. A small to mid-size map, Harvest is ideal for Capture the Flag. Here, you’ll need to get creative to effectively use light vehicles which are limited to the exterior pathways and can’t get into the bases, making this map perfect for infantry firefights and face-to-face skirmishes.
• Shatter: Shatter is themed around natural crystalline surfaces and the huge UNSC factories mining them. This large, symmetrical map is a playground for the Warthog and Mantis - its open pathways make it easy to get around, whether on foot or in vehicles. Shatter is a great fit for Dominion and the new game type Extraction.
