‘Assassin’s Creed 4’ Gets ‘The Watch’ Companion App [Video]

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is heading to a console near you on October 29 and now it has been revealed that those who preorder the game will get an extra little gift. The Watch companion application will be made available to anyone who pre-orders the game through their usual retailers or online.

Ubisoft has issued an official press release that detailed what this companion app will actually give those who pre-order the title. The Watch will be available both in smartphone and tablet additions and will also be coming as a desktop format for those who just want to use their computer.

Assassin’s Creed 4 fans who order the game ahead of time will get the app that gives them a look at a community that will be specially cultivated for the series and Black Flag in particular. While the application is only being announced for this title it seems likely that it will be expanded to future releases as well.

Ubisoft has already announced that they are looking to release a new title in the series every year. It doesn’t seem as though they would release a new application for every single version. More likely is that you will get some sort of login or other way to lock out those who don’t pre-order next year’s version of the game.

The Watch was unveiled with a brand new trailer that showed off all the features of the companion application. Among those features are the ability to join and follow related social media interactions.

Users will also be able to get to see regularly updated features that will give more information about the story inside the game. Those who pre-order will be able to get inside info on different characters and locations that players will interact with.

Interactivity will be taken to the next level with the added feature of being able to play special quests that are offered up on the application.
