World in Conflict is a real-time strategy game launched in 2007 and developed by Massive Entertainment. The game takes place in 1989 in which an imminent economic collapse, and the failure to receive aid through diplomacy from the West, leads the Soviet Union to invading Western Europe and triggering World War III. The game allows both single player and multiplayer options and an expansion pack titled Soviet Assault is also available.
Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag is an open world, action adventure game which is the sixth installment of the series. The games brings in a mix of naval warfare as well as fighting on land. Much of the game time is spent on Kenway’s ship as players look for islands, quests and ships to loot and commandeer. The naval battles have made significant improvements from Assassin’s Creed III and are a welcome change to the traditional Assassin’s Creed play style. Hunting and crafting is back and this time players can also go after marine animals. Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag was one of the bestselling games of 2013.
