Because there’s more than enough murderous mayhem to go around, Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag’s multiplayer brings out a cohort of colorful costumed characters that will mix it up in the exotic locales of the Caribbean in 1715. Death comes quickly – and often – in Black Flag’s fully upgraded multiplayer, packed with new maps, modes and the customizable Game Lab. Feast your eyes on the outlaws, mercenaries and, yes, pirates that will soon be skulking through these lush Caribbean locales in search of their next targets.

The multiplayer looks pretty much the same..But Please! Please! I'm begging, get rid of Templar Vision it ruins the whole point of Assassins Creed..
looks like the previous multiplayer but with new maps. Feels like ac multiplayer havent evolved at all, maybe some people like it. I kind of was hoping for something like Red dead multiplayer where you run around in an openworld and could crew a ship and start matches in citys or something. Someday maybe!
Templar vision was taken out in AC3!
And on a side note, I actually think Templar Vision isn't unbalanced...it hilariously makes all your pursuers know exactly who you are. The only time it was decently useful is if you're dropping down from a roof, but even then, firecrackers does essentially the same thing, and doesn't make you glow like a Christmas tree.
The changes between ACB, ACR, and AC3 have been massive for the multiplayer. The gameplay style has really changed, and really rewards stealth and patience as the multiplayer has developed in my opinion. For example, in ACR and AC3, you have to follow your pursuer for a little while to get an incognito, but in ACB you don't. Also, smoke bomb was ridiculously powerful in ACR, but less so in AC3 which really varied the gameplay (in ACR if you were't using smoke bomb, you were at a massive disadvantage)
