Video Games @ NBPL

Did you know you can borrow video games from the North Battleford Public Library?  Games are available for Wii UXBOX ONE  and PlayStation 4 systems.  More games will be on the way soon!

It’s ok if you don’t have a game system at home. The library has its very own PlayStation 4 system you can use in house. To use the PlayStation 4 system at the library, all you need is your library card.

If you can’t decide what you want to play, you can look at some of our recently reviewed games below to get an idea.




Imagine it is the year is 1715 and pirates rule the Caribbean where they have established their own lawless Republic. Corruption, greediness and cruelty are commonplace.

Among the outlaws is a brash young captain named Edward Kenway. His fight for glory has earned him the respect of legends like Blackbeard, but also drawn him into the ancient war between Assassins and Templars, a war that may destroy everything the pirates have built. Welcome to the Golden Age of Piracy.

Why we like the game:

  • This chapter in the Assassin’s Creed adventure gives you all new weaponry including four flintlock pistols and dual cutlass swords.

Why we like the game:

  • The graphics are amazing! Levels are filled with extraordinary colour, light and detail.
  • There is a good variety of play. The game is mostly a third-person shooter with cartoon violence but some non-combat parts allow for variety in the game. There are non-combat sections like traversal by grind rail or jetpack and occasionally you can leave Ratchet behind and navigate a level as Clank.
