With Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag blowing up the next-gen consoles (and current-gen too), publisher Ubisoft has released yet another entry into its wildly popular Assassin’s Creed franchise and this time it’s come to “high-end smartphones and tablets”. That’s right, Assassin’s Creed: Pirates is out for Android and iOS devices.
But before you start practicing your stealth moves, take a breath. Assassin’s Creed: Pirates will focus on epic naval battles instead of the art of murder. You’ll manage your crew, search for treasure and customize your ships. The game will include free to play features like purchasable upgrades such as “more cannons for your deck, a new rudder or better sails.” Assassin’s Creed: Pirates will allow players to “explore a huge map featuring paradise islands, volcanic shores, mangroves and many more gorgeous landscapes.”
“Pirates” places you in the boots of Alonzo Batilla “as he rises through the ranks of the fearful pirates of the golden age.” Ubisoft’s announcement touted “an adventure that will reveal the truth about La Buse’s mysterious treasure” as well as run ins with “the Templars and the Assassins as they struggle for supremacy and meet the famed figures of the era: Blackbeard, Bellamy and Hornigold.”The game promises “dozens of side missions, treasures quests, perks and achievements” and “groundbreaking 3D visuals.”
Assassin’s Creed: Pirates is a standalone mobile title, and is separate from Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag and its companion app. Pirates is set in the same time period of the 18th century, however.
