Developer Ubisoft Barcelona released its Mad Max-inspired take on post-apocalyptic pirates today. These aren’t the kind of pirates that shout, “Arrr, matey!” on a boat, these are the kind of pirates that ruthlessly destroy a sand cruiser to salvage its valuable parts.

A cast of eccentric scavengers upgrade your sand cruiser in between heated battles set in a dystopian desert. The clashing cruisers are similar to the warring ships of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.

The customizable sand cruisers can be used in either single-player mode or a PvP multiplayer mode. The game launched with four unique sand cruisers, but Ubisoft says that it will be expanding on the number of cruisers along with more ship parts, upgrades, and options to decorate your vessel.

Sandstorm: Pirate Wars released for iOS and Android today, and requires a minimum of an iPhone 4S or Samsung S3 equivalent. If you want more mobile games to look forward to, check out our 2016 Video Game Release Schedule.
