If you’ve ever played Assassin’s Creed and thought, “I’d really just like to sail around the sea pirating” (or some such other similar thought), Ubisoft just-released iOS and Android title Assassin’s Creed Pirates might be up your alley.
Basically from what can be gleaned from the trailer, Pirates lets you sail in the high pirating style of Edward Kenway, just without any of the pesky bits about being an assassin. Instead it’s just naval combat as far as the eye can see.
No surprise, maybe, considering that following the development of Pirates as well as the generally very positive feedback over ACIV’s piratical aspects Ubisoft appears to quite possibly be mulling some sort of stand-alone pirate adventure perhaps entirely outside of the AC universe.
Add in a bit of Master and Commander-esque detail and strategy and that could be a very cool thing indeed.
