Assassin's Creed 4 will look "exceptionally beautiful" on PS4, Ubisoft has said.

Lead content manager Carsten Myhill said the main differences between current and next-generation versions will be "graphical enhancements".

Underwater exploration is one of the many features making their debut in Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag.



"The most obvious answer is that visually [PS4 is] going to look more impressive," he told Digital Spy.

"The horsepower allows us to make something really exceptionally beautiful.

"That's not to say the current gen version of the game won't be beautiful; they have been so far and we will continue with that."

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag will support the features of the PS4 controller, such as the touch pad, but is something that will be revealed in future.

As for Wii U, GamePad features are still being "defined" but Myhill said "it's fair to say we'll be using it for expecting things, like the map".

He added: "But we're always looking for new ways to incorporate and utilise this technology [the GamePad]. I'm sure we'll be revealing more information on that in the coming weeks."

Confirmed last week, Assassin's Creed 4 will be set in the Caribbean in 1715, with players taking control of Edward Kenway, the grandfather of Assassin's Creed 3 protagonist Connor Kenway.

Said to be the biggest Assassin's Creed game yet, it will feature 50 unique locations including the cities of Havana, Kingston and Nassau, as well as fishing villages, smugglers coves, plantations and jungles.

In a first for the series, players are able to explore underwater to search shipwrecks.

With Desmond's story concluded, the player themselves will assume the hero in the present day setting, working for Abstergo and researching Kenway's backstory.

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag will release on November 1 in Europe and October 29 in North America on Xbox 360, PC, Wii U, the PS3 and PS4.

Both PlayStation platforms will also contain 60 minutes of exclusive content.
