Take the high seas with Assassin's Creed Pirates on mobile devices
Ubisoft is has announced the development of Assassin's Creed Pirates, a mobile game inspired by the brutal naval combat in Assassin's Creed 3.
In the game, which will be available on smartphones and tablets, you'll explore the Caribbean during the "Golden Age of Piracy" as Alonzo Batilla, a young and ambitious captain. You'll be tasked with managing your crew, upgrading your ship, recruiting new crew members, and engaging in massive real-time naval battles in order to becomet he most feared pirate. Along the way, you'll encounter Assassins and Templars, as well as famous historical figures including Blackbeard, Bellamy, and Hornigold.
Ubisoft promises plenty of side missions, treasure quests, perks, achievements, and "groundbreaking 3D visuals" that includes changing weather conditions that will directly impact gameplay.
Despite the emphasis on piracy and a similar 18th century Caribbean setting, the story of Assassin's Creed Pirates is not linked with Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, which will be releasing on consoles and PC this October.
