Default Assassin's Creed: Pirates (by Ubisoft)

Yes, it is a mobile game.

http://www.joystiq.com/2013/09/10/as...ile-this-fall/.

Quote:
Assassin's Creed: Pirates is a new standalone game in development at Ubisoft Paris. Set within the caribbean, Assassin's Creed: Pirates is due this fall for smartphones and tablets.

Players assume the role of Alonzo Batilla, a freshly minted ship captain, as they engage in naval combat and explore the vast network of islands that form the caribbean. In search of treasure and conquest, Batilla will stumble upon famous pirates of the time like Edward "Blackbeard" Teach, "Black Sam" Bellamy and Benjamin Hornigold.

Not much else is known about the game now, though Ubisoft says it'll arrive on "high-end smartphones and tablets" in Fall 2013.

This is legit.
Too bad about AC franchise though, i thought we would have something good here when playing AC1, but it became just another cash-cow. And its a shame that mobile devices still didnt get the proper AC, even PSP did, cmon.

This game may be good though, since ubisoft is great at creating "on-the-sea-action" games. Silent hunter is a good example. Either way, I'm looking foraward to it.

I see what you mean when you say that the AC brand is being milked (you're certainly not alone in that opinion), but I still think that the concept alone is ripe with potential, so I don't mind the yearly releases. However, I'm with you 100% that it's a shame that there's still no full-fledged Assassin's Creed experience on mobile platforms. Ubisoft's approach to tailor their games to mobile platforms has done wonders for most of their games - Rayman Jungle Run and Prince of Persia The Shadow and the Flame being some of the more blatant examples - but Assassin's Creed remains the exception. If they took the time to try and recreate the console experience on mobile devices, they could have another huge hit. Maybe some day.

I'm looking forward to Pirates. It might not be the most faithful Assassin's Creed game as far as the running-and-stabbing parts are concerned, but it might be the most faithful Pirates of the Caribbean game we get. Hopefully this doesn't get cancelled like Utopia was (would be interested in knowing why that happened, by the way), as this shows far more promise than the standard city building game Utopia was shaping up to be...

Default First Assassin's Creed Gameplay Footage

I got to play Assassin's Creed Pirates on iPad Air, and just wanted to post my gameplay video and some impressions!


Low bandwidth Version | Pop Up


Assassin's Creed Pirates Preview

- focused on naval combat
- top down world map is for taking Flight Control like control of the route
- you can hire new pirates and add perks
- you can buy new pirate ships.
- fighting could be described as Infinity blade with Ships. Quite dynamic.

Watch the gameplay video :-)

Infinity Boat? Woah that's disappointing... I was expecting the naval combat to be mostly the same as the console version of AC IV. Well at least I know beforehand what the gameplay looks like, thanks for the video!
