It's become quite usual so it is no surprise to learn that Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is also getting a Season Pass giving access to plenty of downloadable content. The main dish however comes in the form of a whole new adventure dealing with the problem of slavery. Let's hope the story is interesting enough as the subject itself clearly is promising. The trailer doesn't show much but its atmosphere is pretty well done thanks to some nice music and solid voice acting. Update: Screenshots added.
A Season Pass will be available for purchase at the launch of the game on PlayStation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC, and will include the below downloadable game content. Get all of this for only £15.95, a 20% savings off the individual pack prices.

so it retained the photorealism of filmed footage, but you could still lean in and around and everything would shift with perspective. (51 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: I saw a few recent 360 cameras being advertised as VR cameras and they're 2D. I think 360 video is pretty cool in general though. (51 minutes ago)
sony did quite a cool thing with a violin solo guy where they filmed it all with 3D cameras. but then converted all the elements into a 3D scene running in unity. (52 minutes ago)
I can kinda imagine VR in something like Battlefield being pretty incredible too but I'm not sure how well that would work with most people's stomachs. (53 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: yeah, i can't say i've seen any though. even the stuff on youtube is stereoscopic. it just requires a fixed head position. no leaning forward etc. (53 minutes ago)
it can even stay third person, seeing as bound and the playroom VR platformer work really well. apparently FROM are making something for VR now though. i'm hoping for a new kings field. (55 minutes ago)
Getting annoyed at people marketing 2D 360 video as "VR" though.. that's not good enough. It's cool, but it's not good enough. (55 minutes ago)
