Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag has pirates and ships, which is all great and everything but there's something everyone's forgetting in all the excitement: there's an entire games development studio included for you to nose around.

Okay, admittedly development studios don't quite have the same capacity for adventure as the high seas, but it's still fun to see how hard Assassin's Creed 4 leans on the real world Ubisoft Montreal offices for its fictional Abstergo Entertainment headquarters. Earlier this year Ian Higton spent a couple of days snooping around the studio, and he's since spent almost as long looking around Assassin's Creed 4, so he's well placed to make comparisons and point out the similarities.

And in case you missed it, Tom delivered his verdict on Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag earlier on today. Turns out it's quite good.
