Back in May, Ubisoft pulled a rather curious move by releasing Assassin’s Creed III – and its counterpart, Liberation – for the Switch. The port was widely criticized for being poorly optimized and somewhat irrelevant, especially considering the leaps and bounds that the franchise had made in scope and polish since the game’s original release. Many reviewers (myself included) longed to see the series’ fourth entry, Black Flag, released for the Switch instead – albeit without the low frame rate and ropey audio present in Assassin’s Creed III. Fast forward to today, and Ubisoft has only gone and done, well, exactly that.

YouTuber ElAnalistaDeBits has put together a video showing how Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag stacks up on Switch, PS4, and PS3. Give the video comparison a look below.

Trials Rising will host a Christmas event between December 12 and December 30, Ubisoft has announced. Players can earn Christmas Event Gear Crates containing special themed items along with regular Gear Crate items. Content includes Santa’s Helper Outfit, Snowman Helmet, Tangled Christmas Lights Headlight, and seven themed helmet accessories.

In other Trials Rising news, a new update is expected on Switch tomorrow. Find the full patch notes below.
