To who it may concern
I have noticed several things which Ubisoft are improving upon from earlier titles in the Assassin's Creed franchise, but what will the additions from previous games be brought back for Black Flag.

1) In Assassin's Creed 3, players would collect several different outfits and weapons which would be kept at the Homestead. Will the Jackdaw utilise this technique in the same manner?

2) In other franchises, players have the option to visit a friendly base or area, and sleep in order to pass the game time along. This is done in many RPG's. In order to make the game seem more realistic, will Ubisoft utilise this for the Jackdaw?

3) In Assassin's Creed 3, there were many errors to do with visual gameplay. One such mechanic was that some gameplay items, such as the arrow quiver, would not show up on
other outfits other than the default. Will this be fixed?

4) Will there be outfits returning in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. If so, will they have the obvious pirate theme and will they be unlocked as side missions or found as loot, or even exclusive to pre- ordered or UPlay?

5) It was noted that the player would have more control in Edward Kenway's appearance, such as the option to remove the hood at any given time. Is this true?

6) There have not been many references to the First Civilisation or the modern day story. There have been leaks such as the modern day character is "you" and that you work for a section of Abstergo Entertainment. Will this mean that these story arcs take a larger or smaller role in the main game?

If anyone had any news on this, please post back.

1. We don't know. Probably.
2. Probably not. Unlikely.
3. We do not know yet. They are having problems with holsters and sheaths not appearing in gameplay and only in cinematics
4. Outfits are returning.
5. I have never head that. Don't know
6. This is not a leak. It has been confirmed many times that the modern day protagonist is supposed to be a first-person character that is never identified (they do say that it is us, but they might make the character an official character for all we know). There will be modern day segments that we have to go through as part of the story, but there will also be many things for us to discover in the modern-day. We may be able to unlock extra missions through the modern-day, as that's how we can gain access to the Aveline missions on the PS3/PS4.

They talk a lot about the Jackdaw and how it`s the second main character. you can obviously explore it, so MAYBE outfits can be stored here..or maybe Edward has a safehouse somewhere to keep his outfits and weapons. nothing concrete yet about this.

2) In other franchises, players have the option to visit a friendly base or area, and sleep in order to pass the game time along. This is done in many RPG's. In order to make the game seem more realistic, will Ubisoft utilise this for the Jackdaw?
I don`t think so, since AC doesn't even utilize manual saving. not to mention that this is a simulation in the animus.

3) In Assassin's Creed 3, there were many errors to do with visual gameplay. One such mechanic was that some gameplay items, such as the arrow quiver, would not show up on
other outfits other than the default. Will this be fixed?
There`s bound to be glitches, bugs and technical disadvantages anywhere. nothing can be said about this for sure. nothing that`ll satisfy you that is.

4) Will there be outfits returning in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. If so, will they have the obvious pirate theme and will they be unlocked as side missions or found as loot, or even exclusive to pre- ordered or UPlay?
Yes, Yes and yes, they`ll be unlocked in side missions, but we don`t know which ones yet and there`re pre-order outfits like always. nothing about U-play yet. most likely there will be.

5) It was noted that the player would have more control in Edward Kenway's appearance, such as the option to remove the hood at any given time. Is this true?
Nope. Hood removal is more elastic as said by Darby, but it`s still very much out of the player`s control.

6) There have not been many references to the First Civilisation or the modern day story. There have been leaks such as the modern day character is "you" and that you work for a section of Abstergo Entertainment. Will this mean that these story arcs take a larger or smaller role in the main game?
They never mention anything deep about neither TWCB nor the Modern days during this time, why is this surprising to you?? those aren't leaks, they`re confirmed by the Devs. It`ll work as usual. there are mandatory modern day sequences and there are optional modern day sequences, but this time, there`s a lot more optional...few things mentioned were numerous videos, recordings and puzzles.

If anyone had any news on this, please post back.
