Time for another Gaming Photography post. I recently played Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag – Freedom Cry for the first time.
This was a very well made expansion/spinoff of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. I say spinoff because when it was first released it could only be run through a copy of Black Flag, but now you can run it as a standalone game like I did on my PS4. What I liked about this short expansion is that while it provides only a short vignette from the life of Adéwalé it includes the full Assassin’s Creed IV open world experience. The game provides you with all the mechanics that made Black Flag probably the best Assassin’s Creed game to date. You have an upgradeable ship and a decent sized map to sail on. Enemy ships that can be attacked, boarded, and plundered. You can go harpooning for multiple types of large sea animals such as whales and sharks. You can search for treasure on various random islands and in deep sea dives. If you don’t play the games for the story, they basically gave you the entire Black Flag experience for a lower price with just a few tidbits missing such as tavern games/gambling and seas shanties. Yes I absolutely did miss seas shanties and don’t know how they were left out of this expansion.
So now I’d like to present my top 10 photos from Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag – Freedom Cry. As always, I make it a point of only taking natural in game shots. I don’t use photo modes or alter the brightness/color settings except in special situations. I take my photos through my PC with an Elgato Game Capture HD60 Pro in the case of console games. This was the PS4 version of the game. I also post them on my Twitter and Instagram often.

Please let me know what you think of my shots. Any feedback is appreciated because I would like to improve my gaming photography skills.
