Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Companion App Now Available

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag may have come out two weeks ago, but Ubisoft have just released a way to help you keep track of everything a modern pirate needs.

Available now on the App Store and Google Play, this free app can be used on iPad’s or any tablet connected to the Google Store. It allows for 24/7 access to certain game features, like the initiates wall, progress tracker and Kenway’s fleet mini-game. While playing it will also allow you to use the tablet to keep track of where you are and provide an additional display for treasure maps.

This won’t change the way you play, it is all the same runny-jumpy-stabby experience, but if you have a compatible tablet it is should be worth the download. If you want to know what we thought of the game, you can find our review here.

What do you think? Do you think companion apps are an interesting new avenue to explore, or are they just the new “it” thing? Let us know in the comments.
