Gamer updates – Assassins Creed 4 takes naval warfare to the next level, fight sharks! Minecraft Xbox 360 update 12 and a Mash-Up Pack!

Ubisoft’s Assassins Creed is one of the most popular and profitable gaming franchises at the moment. The latest avatar of the game seems like it’s going to be the best so far. Assassins Creed 4: The Black Flag has a new protagonist and many new gameplay mechanics. When in the “past”, play as a pirate, from fighting against naval forts and other ships to searching for treasure on the sea bed. The game will actually allow the player to free swim on the ocean bed in search of lost treasure but beware sharks! In the “present” the player will be able to explore much more of Abstergo than ever before. It will still have many of the things that have made the franchise popular like free running and an upgrade system – this time around expect free swimming as well, and players will have to upgrade their ship.

In other news, Minecraft developers 4J Studios has said that it is in the final stages of finishing up the new Title Update 12 for Microsoft Xbox 360 – they hope to apply for certification later this week which means that it would take another week or two for the game to be available on Xbox Live. 4J Studio also plans to reveal the first Mash-Up for the console – these packs are combinations of new skins, user interface, textures and a themed world to make the game look like another game. Expect it to be revealed at the same time the Title Update goes in for certification, says 4J Studio – so hopefully by the end of the week or later this month.

And it is now trying its hand at Plants vs Zombies 2 .It is busy with PopCap, the developers of the franchise, to make Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare – a tower defence and third person shooter game. Initially announced for the X-Box 360 and X-Box Live consoles reports state that it will now be available for PCs as well.

EA Labels President, Frank Gibeau, says that it was an EA development team that first came up with a little prototype with some nifty gameplay mechanics. This was then showed to PopCap, who received it so well that the EA team actually went over and started developing the game. Gibeau has also let us know that fans can expect a certain amount of crossover from the second game in the franchise, Plants Vs Zombies 2 – It’s About Time. So while we’ll still have our favourites like the Pea-shooter and Disco Zombie, expect new plants like Bonk Choy and also some setting and gameplay quirks from the second instalment.

Reports state that the game will have four main characters, each with different primary skills and attributes. It will also have fully fledged multiplayer modes – co-op play and online multiplayer with up to twenty-four players!

This is completely unexpected, but the Plants vs Zombies universe is so loved by gamers that it’s guaranteed that Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare – a tower defence and third person shooter, will be well received by fans.
