Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag PS4
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is an action-adventure open world which mixes the historical genre with sci-fi, and is the sixth installment in the Assassin's Creed series, and a sequel to the 2012 Assassin's Creed III. Black Flag is also the first of the series to appear on the PlayStation 4 as well as the PlayStation 3.
Set in 18th Century Caribbean during the Golden Age of Piracy, Edward Kenway - the grandfather of Assassin's Creed III's Ratonhnhake:ton, is a privateer-turned-pirate-turned-assassin, who is attempting to uncover a consipracy between the Templars and their dealings with the British and Spanish empires. These memories are unearthed by an unnamed player character who is hired by Abstergo Entertainment using samples from Desmond Miles' body.
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag received positive reviews, with an average score of 89%, for its beautiful graphics, ability to revitalize the series, and overall fun gameplay.
Considered easier than Assassin's Creed III, Black Flag has your standard offline trophies which can be unlocked during the free roaming phase after completing the story. There are 6 online trophies, the most time consuming being Committed To The Cause in which you must reach level 55 in multiplayer. But aside from requiring some time, all of them are doable without needing any boosting.
All in all, you can expect around 35-40 hours of gameplay for this platinum.
If you've played any of the previous Assassin's Creed titles, then you'll know how this roadmap works, which is essentially in three stages.
First, simply play through the story from beginning to end. There are no missable trophies, so you can just enjoy the story and not worry about purposely unlocking anything. Eventually, you will need to get 100% synchronization in every main mission. But by the end of the game, your player-character will be fully upgraded, making this easier to do later.
Once you've finished the story and have entered the free roaming series, here you can mop-up all the other offline trophies you still need. Check out the trophy guides in our Links page for further details. This will also include, if you haven't yet done so, getting 100% synchronization.
Once that's finished, you can head into multiplayer and collect the last remaining 6 trophies. For the All Rounder trophy, a good idea would be to keep track of all the weapons and abilities you've been using, to avoid any confusion afterwards. Also, in order to reach level 55, it's possible to boost in private sessions. If you're looking for a Boosting Buddy, check out the forum we've posted under our Links tab.
