At Ubisoft’s annual Digital Days event, the company revealed that it will be expanding the Assassin’s Creed universe to include mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets this Fall with the upcoming Assassin’s Creed: Pirates.
Not to be mistaken for the separate Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag companion app, the two games will include some crossover, including characters such as Captian Benjamin Hornigold and the notorious Edward Teach, better known as Blackbeard.
The game will cast you as Alonzo Batilla, a small time pirate who, under your control, will rise through the ranks of the pirate hoards. Similar to how you recruit assassins, Batilla will hire crew members, upgrade his vessel, and wake waves as he becomes a scourge of the seas!
