Ubisoft’s popular Assassin’s Creed Pirates, which first launched in the App Store back on Dec. 5, has just received its first major update. Now, iDevice gamers can enjoy exploring a new area and meeting new characters, while enhanced gameplay and Facebook integration has also reached the $4.99 swashbuckling app.
More specifically, Ubisoft has added a mythical region called “Nassau” to the application, and here pirates can enjoy 10 brand new secondary missions and 12 new treasures.
There’s also an all-new campaign mission featuring “the brutal pirate” Charles Vane, and three additional ships are available for iDevice gamers to unlock and sail: The Brisk Fortune, The Jack Snipe, and The Citadel.
The updated Assassin’s Creed Pirates also allows users to engage in new defense gameplay, too: “use new strategies, like destroying cannonballs in the air, to turn the situation around by counterattacking your enemies,” Ubisoft explains in the app’s release notes.
Finally, gamers can access Facebook-powered social features using the in-game map.
Here’s a complete list of new features, as outlined in Assassin’s Creed Pirates’ release notes:
