Get ready to set sail. Ubisoft recently announced that Assassin's Creed: Pirates will arrive in the App Store next week on Thursday, Dec. 5 for both the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini. And if the name didn’t tip you off, gamers will be partaking in naval combat, Caribbean exploration, and a quest for some legendary treasure. Here’s a quick trailer that shows off some of the game’s naval warfare. Click here if you can’t see the video. Taking place during the Golden Age of Piracy in the 17th century, gamers will play as ship captain Alonzo Batilla. Players will need to manage their crew, upgrade their ship, recruit new members, and battle others in real time to become a feared pirate and claim the famous La Buse treasure. During their travels, players will meet assassins and templars along with famous other pirates like Blackbeard, Bellamy, and Hornigold. When it arrives, the game will set you back $4.99. While I’m a big fan of the series on gaming consoles, this iOS game also looks spectacular. I’m looking forward to trying it out.
