Ubisoft has offered us the first glimpse of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’s modern-day setting in a new batch of screenshots.

Up until now the French publisher has been showering us with images from the game’s Caribbean setting during the Golden Age of Piracy in the early 1700s. However, this latest batch moves away from Edward Kenway’s nautical adventures, giving us a look what appears to be an Abstergo complex.

View them here.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is the next chapter in the multi-million selling historical action-adventure series, and places greater emphasis on the naval missions introduced in ACIII. As Edward Kenway, players have access to his ship the Jackdaw, and must plunder other vessels to upgrade your crew and ship armaments to conquer tougher foes across the high seas.

There’s over 50 unique locations to explore across the game world, offering a plethora of side quests to tackle in addition to the main campaign. Multiplayer also returns, though it won’t feature naval battles.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is due out in October in North America and November in Europe.
