Like any true seafaring bandit, gathering your mates for games, hearty jokes and backstabbing is part and parcel of Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag. And there are plenty of modes which allow you to enjoy this pirate pastime of pillaging and plundering, from free-for-all assassinations to team-based treasure stealing. It's quick and easy to set up - simply choose your character, mode, map and environment, and away you go.
Game Lab lets you create your own multiplayer modes from over 200 different elements such as weapon types and what activities earn you the most points.
Be sure to make your particular assassin look the part and dress him or her up with masks, war paint, scars and, of course, eye patches, so that your mates know exactly who has taken them down.
Stalking your targets is spiced up by giving your character special skills and perks, such as Blender, which creates a civilian lookalike to confuse your enemies and allows you to hide in crowds more easily. Use these abilities wisely, and you'll become more legendary than any cutlass waving, seafaring scoundrel.
