Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, has been available for a little while on PS3, Wii U and 360, with the next-gen versions soon to release. Sandwiched in between these two versions is a free companion app for the game, which launches today.
Basically the app works as a real-time menu while you play the game. It features an interactive world map that lets you pick through missions and set waypoints. Then there’s a fleet option that lets you send the ships you gather in the game out on missions to secure cargo and cash. A host of other features are bundled in, including a progress tacker, treasure maps, an animus database and a sort of message wall.
Again, it’s free to download. The game costs you around £40, which is obviously needed.
