The lights are on
Ubisoft has announced a new title that will bring the seaborne action of the Assassin's Creed series to mobile devices. Assassin's Creed: Pirates will star a young captain who is neither Assassin nor Templar, but will cross paths with both.
As Captain Alonzo Batilla, players will have command of a ship and crew. Gameplay focuses on real-time battles between ships. The title is in 3D and features both wind and weather that will have an impact on how players proceed.
Assassin's Creed: Pirates will be coming later this year. No platforms or business model have been confirmed.
Our TakeIt's likely that Assassin's Creed: Pirates will not be a free-to-play game. In other announcements made today, Ubisoft has made it clear when titles will be available for no up-front cost.
The naval combat of Assassin's Creed III and, even more so, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag have been huge selling points. If Ubisoft manages to distill that successfully, Pirates could be an engaging experience. I'm looking forward to trying it for myself.

I dont own a small device... looks awesome though.
If they were to do an online multiplayer spinoff, pirates would be an awesome setting, with Assassin's vs Templars
I'm gonna skip out on this one. i have like 5 games on my mobile device and nearly never play any of them, if its cheap and looks interesting maybe I'll change my mind somewhere down the road
I think this is going a little... overboard! Har har.
Seriously though, too many of these too quickly means people will be skipping out on this. Me included.
Wow, 3 Assassin's Creed titles upcoming? To me, that's just ridiculous.
I will now have a new game to help me get through not having 4 yet. As a big AC fan, I cant wait.
I'm so glad this didn't end up being a console game.
With only touch controls and a $5 price tag(Guessing), this probably wont be as good. Hopefully I will be wrong but usually mobile versions are striped versions of the striped version.
the main series, the "sub" series and the "HD" series.
well ubisoft is quite..."active" in the AC part.
So it's Sid Meier's Pirates with less stuff? Cool.
AC4, AC Liberation HD, AC: Pirates.
This will fail I'm thinking... Jus' sayin
These series' need to not do mobile stuff, seriously.
Please let this be on the 3ds please give me a reason why buying my 3ds was worth buying besides pokemon x or y.
Also does this mean that he has no assassin like skills at all? he's just a regular old pirate?
A never mind just saw the video and I think this is going to be ***...sorta like cod fro tablet and phone
