We know what you're thinking: These shots look like something "Deus Ex: Human Revolution!" Trust us, they're not. In a Q&A with Game Zone, Ubisoft Lead Writer Darby McDevitt stated that the game's present day location will be Montreal, Quebec. He also indicated that you'll encounter new characters as well as old ones, though he didn't provide details.

While the above screenshots are indeed from "Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag," playing the present day sections of "AC4: Black Flag" may give you "Deus Ex" and/or "Thief" flashbacks. McDevitt revealed that while you won't be doing much plundering, you'll be "exploring, eavesdropping, and hacking. Mondern day pirate stuff."

"Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag" will be released on October 29 for Xbox PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii U."Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag" will also be released for the PS4 and Xbox One.
