At this year’s Digital Days, Ubisoft announced Assassin’s Creed Pirates, a standalone Assassin’s Creed game for smartphones and tablets. While it’s not related to the companion app, the characters you meet in Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag will make appearances in Pirates, including Blackbeard and Benjamin Hornigold. You play as Alonzo Batilla and explore the Caribbean, upgrading your ship and engaging in real-time naval battles on your path to claiming a legendary treasure and becoming the most feared pirate of your time.

Assassin's Creed Pirates

Upgrade your ship with better sails and weapons and recruit new crewmembers to acquire perks that will make you a better captain. Use cannons, mortar and swivel guns in battle to tear your enemies apart up close or from a distance, and rise through the ranks of the pirates of the era. This is an Assassin’s Creed title, so expect to cross paths with Templars and Assassins on your journey.

Assassin’s Creed Pirates will be available fall 2013. Check out the announce trailer below.

      I would love to see an app for this on the Windows store too! Would be nice to have a couple distractions on my Surface tablet during breaks at work.

    I really hope this is still coming out as lack of news is starting to remind me of the ill fated utopia :/

    What's the word on this game? It's been nearly two months since being announced with no updates. Is it still in development?

    Is this project alive? No news about the game all through the entire net. No updates :(

    What is going on with this project Ubisoft? It looks fun and I am looking forward to it ? No news since the announcement though. I hope it doesn't go the way of the other mobile announced AC game where you build your own towns.

Have something to say?
