Blow the dust off your cutlasses and dig out your pirate hat, ye land-lovers! A mere decade after its original 2013 launch, the top-notch Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag has hoisted a fresh update, and no, this isn’t a joke from the captain’s cabin.

As Assassin’s Creed chapters go, this Black Flag instalment has long been hailed as the crown jewel in the franchise’s treasure chest. With a blend of shadowy stealth and swashbuckling action, Edward Kenway’s aquatic exploits have certainly kept fans captivated, offering a tantalising taste of seafaring adventure that first set sail in Assassin’s Creed 3.

Those with a hankering for the high seas can immerse themselves in this pirate-themed extravaganza without the hassle of unearthing ancient consoles from the attic’s abyss. Edward Kenway might not hold the same star status as Ezio Auditore, but he still cuts a dash as one of the series’ unforgettable characters.

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag Update: What’s New in the Old World?

In a surprising turn of events, the Black Flag veterans amongst you, whether sailing on the good ship Steam or the mighty galleon of Ubisoft Connect, will be greeted with a shiny new update. Just a minuscule 12 MB on Steam and a slightly heftier 13 MB on Ubisoft Connect, the fresh update 1.08 has docked on the shores of your PC platform.

Why, you might ask? Well, it seems Ubisoft has remedied an aggravating windowed mode issue that has been giving gamers a case of the scurvy. Hardly an earth-shattering development, yet the mere fact Ubisoft deemed it necessary to patch up this near-vintage title warms the cockles of our gaming hearts.

So, here are the brief but important Update 1.08 Patch Notes:

  • Rectifies issue causing game to launch in windowed mode

Ubisoft deserves a round of applause for it’s dogged determination to keep the main Assassin’s Creed series in shipshape condition across modern platforms. Granted, the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Assassin’s Creed 4 secured it a berth on the PS5 and Xbox Series X. But let’s not forget the commendable efforts to remaster older AC titles, even though the original Assassin’s Creed continues to languish on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

Yet, all hands are on deck for a treasure trove of Assassin’s Creed delights on the horizon. From the highly-anticipated Assassin’s Creed Mirage launching later this year, an upcoming VR game, to whispers of an open-world Assassin’s Creed set in feudal Japan. We’ve even caught wind of a potential Assassin’s Creed 4 remake on the distant horizon, although Ubisoft is yet to go public with the exciting news.

Don your tricorn, ready your hidden blade, and set sail for adventure once more. Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag awaits on Windows PC, PS3, PS4, Switch, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
