‘Assassin’s Creed Pirates’ Set To Launch Next Week On iOS

Ubisoft has announced that the iOS/Android exclusive “Assassin’s Creed Pirates” will launch on December 5th for $4.99.

Coming off the release of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag for PS4 and Xbox One, next week shall see the release of the iOS title Assassin’s Creed Pirates, which will focus entirely on naval missions. Originally announced back in September, the game will take place in the same 18th century setting as Assassin’s Creed IV, however, developer Ubisoft says there won’t be any link between the two stories.

If you’ve played either of the past two major Assassin’s Creed games, you should have a good sense for what the game’s ship combat will be like. Watch the game’s new trailer below.

Having enjoyed the naval combat in past Assassin’s Creed titles, this is a game I’ll be keeping my eye on.
