We’ve heard from the beginning itself that Ubisoft would be implementing extra content into the PlayStation 4 version of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, developed by Ubisoft Montreal. When we asked creative director Jean Guesdon about some more details regarding the same, he clarified just what the extra content entailed.

“The PS4 version does not have any extra game content per se,” he said.

He further added that players can expect immersive graphics and superior waves simulation in the PS4 version of the game.

“Graphics, obviously, will be improved to give you a more immersive feeling: leaves and plants move with the wind, waves feel even more lifelike, sails billow in the wind, etc. Other than that, we do support the PS4 touchpad and Vita Remote Play, which means you will be able to play AC4 on your Vita through your PS4.”

We also asked if we would be seeing better wind simulation for the PS4 version, as already outlined for the PS4 version of Watch_Dogs. Guesdon responded that, “You will definitely feel the effects of our tropical storms, and of the wind blowing in your sails. That is what I was referring to when I was saying that the improved graphics helped us increase immersion. Wind is such an important element in the pirate fantasy that we made sure a lot of thought was put behind its representations in our game.”

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is currently set to release on October 29th for PS3, Wii U, PC and Xbox 360, with a Q4 2013 release for PS4 and Xbox One.
