I am making steady progress in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. I’ve set myself the goal of completing the game before October 28th (the release date for Assassin’s Creed V: Unity,) and I don’t foresee any problems in getting there. I am currently 26% through the main story line. I’ve not made progress on that in a couple of weeks because I’ve been cleaning things up north of Cuba before I proceed, and upgrading the Jackdaw as much as I can. This cleanup included opening all the chests, grabbing all the Animus fragments and hunting all the sharks. Those things are done.
All that remained to complete northern Cuba as of last weekend was the smuggler’s den at Jiquey, which my my last post covered, and the Spanish fort at Gibara. I’d already taken the forts at Dry Tortuga (easy difficulty) and
Castillo de Jagua Eleuthera ( medium easy difficulty,) and Gibara was the only one remaining. It would be easier than the last fort I took, Castillo de Jagua, so I thought it’d make an excellent teaching point. So I recorded the entire assault, both sea and sack, and present it here as an object lesson on how to take a fort in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Enjoy!
