For all those gamers excited about Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, which is now available for Xbox One, PS4 and the “last-gen” PS4 and Xbox 360 systems, there’s another pirates game coming soon from Ubisoft. But this one isn’t for consoles. Instead, it’s an Assassin’s Creed Pirates mobile game coming to high end smartphones and tablets on Dec. 5.
The Assassin’s Creed Pirates mobile game will be available for most mobile systems, so you’ll be able to find it for purchase on the Appe App Store, Google Play and the Amazon Appstore. Since it’s not a console-based video game, it’s got a considerably smaller price tag than most Assassin’s Creed fans might expect: $4.99. The Assassin’s Creed Pirates mobile game features brutal naval combat, Caribbean exploration and an epic quest for legendary treasure. In other words, it has all the core elements you’d expect from an AC game, it just happens to be smaller.
In Assassin’s Creed Pirates, players will explore the Caribbean during the Golden Age of Piracy as Alonzo Batilla, a young and ambitious captain. Players will be tasked to manage their crew, upgrade their ship, recruit new crew members and engage in massive real-time naval battles to become the most feared pirate in the Caribbean and claim La Buse’s renowned treasure. Along the way, players will cross paths with Assassins and Templars, as well as famous buccaneers including Blackbeard, Bellamy, and Hornigold.
Ubisoft Paris has developed a brand new mobile engine to bring groundbreaking 3D visuals to this new Assassin’s Creed Pirates mobile game. This engine is responsible for moving waters, lush islands and gorgeous graphics that players will experience on their quest for legendary treasure.
