Yarrh there landlubbers, Ubisoft are lookin' to board yar mobile and tablet with their naval battle game Assassin's Creed: Pirates.

Rather than casting players in the series' standard role of a hooded assassin, Pirates takes place in the memories of timber-shivering Alonzo Batilla, a young captain looking for the legendary treasures of La Buse. A stand-alone title, it takes place during the same period as the series' Black Flag game.

Sailing the waters of the Caribbean, you'll be able to take on the likes of Templars, assassins and legendary pirates including Blackbeard, Bellamy and Hornigold. Upgrade your ship, manage your crew and sink vessels while battling your way to work on the number 31 bus route.
