Assassin’s Creed Pirates now available on iPhone, Android and iPad

New Assassin’s Creed mobile game lands in Apple App Store, Google Play and Amazon AppStore.

Ubisoft is bringing the swash-buckling action to iPhones, iPads, Android phones and tablets with the launch of Assassin’s Creed Pirates.

Unlike the Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag companion app, Pirates is a standalone game set in the same world as Black Flag where gameplay is largely focused on real-time naval battles.

You play Alonzo Bastilla, a pirate rising through the ranks to become
the ruler of the Caribbean Sea and uncover La Buse’s mysterious
treasure.

You’ll be able to pick crew members with different
skills and upgrade your vessel with a wide range of weapons to fend off
rival ships. There are additional side missions to keep you occupied and
achievements to unlock throughout the game.

Some familiar faces will pop up from the console game including Blackbeard, Benjamin Hornigold and even the odd Templar or two.

To create the lush 3D islands and altering weather conditions, Ubisoft is using a new mobile game engine it says will deliver ‘ground-breaking visuals.’

On the App Store it’s priced at £2.99 and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices running iOS 7 or higher.

It’s also available on Google Play for £2.99 and will work on select smartphones and tablets including the Nexus 5.
