Assassins Creed Pirates

Arrrrr

Ubisoft'slatest mobile plunderer, Assassin's Creed Pirates, is now available to purchase through Google Play. The game takes place in the same universe as the Assassin's Creed console titles, but sees players taking on the role ofAlonso Batilla, sailing the seas in search of treasure as the Templars and Assassins play out their ancestoral war.

Our own Paul Acevedohad the chance to preview the game at Ubisoft's San Francisco HQ recently. Here's a snippet from his hands-on impressions:

"After the introductory cinematic wraps, players will set sail towards their meeting with La Buse at Scorpions Reef. Steering the ship takes place in a first-person perspective, just as in Assassins Creed IV. Swipe left or right along the ships wheel in order to navigate the waters and avoid obstacles. Buttons at the bottom-right corner of the screen control acceleration and deceleration.

Ship battles consist of attack and defense phases. Drag left or right to aim your cannons. Youll have to lead a little to compensate for the opponents movement, but firing too far ahead can lead to a miss too. Cannons take a little time to recharge, so all the more incentive to fire carefully."

Hit the Google Play link above to get started. The game sells for $4.99 in the U.S. and 2.99 in the UK.
