Get Assassin’s Creed Pirates for a steal on the App Store today

If you've been on the fence about Assassin’s Creed Pirates, now might be the perfect time you climb onboard. You see, Ubisoft has just dropped the price of the naval battle game to £1.49 / $1.99 This mobile tie-in to Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag has you sailing the Caribbean as Alonzo Batilla, an eager young Captain willing to do anything to make his fortune. Taking part in fierce naval battles, you must scupper enemy vessels, and capture anything from frigates to Man-o-Wars to aid your conquest of the West-Indies.

Hands-on with Assassin's Creed Memories, the card battler that manages to make aerial assassinations a bit dull

Hands-on with Assassin's Creed Memories, the card battler that manages to make aerial assassinations a bit dull

As a long-time fan of the Assassin's Creed series, I've been eagerly awaiting another really strong mobile tie-in game since the rather smashing Assassin's Creed Pirates. The news of a card battler - which as regular viewers will know is one of my favourite genres - being combined with Assassin's Creed was exciting indeed. It's with a heavy heart then that I have to report that Assassin's Creed Memories is a bit dull, or in the very least the soft-launched version in the Australian App Store is a bit dull. Slow-moving, overly-complex, and only the faintest of connections to the Assassin's Creed universe make the game in its current state a disappointment. Here's my hands-on video explainin…

Assassin's Creed Pirates | Hands-On

Ubisoft has just announced that Assassin's Creed Pirates, its seafaring iOS tie-in to console release Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, will drop anchor in App Store waters on December 5th. However, it just so happens that we've got our hooked hands on a preview build of the privateering sim, and have been putting it through its peg-legged paces. Cast as salty scoundrel Alonzo Batilla, you must sail the seas of the Caribbean blowing up other ships, looting treasure, and generally being a bit piratey. If you want to see what all of that looks like, then cast your eyes over our hands-on video below, in which I guide you through the first 15 minutes of the game.…

Land, ho! Ubisoft to release Assassin's Creed Pirates on December 5th

Get ready to haul anchor, hoist the mainsail, and prime the cannons: Assassin's Creed Pirates is coming to iOS next week. A spin-off to Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, this seabound adventure puts you in control of a sleuthing seadog named Alonzo Batilla. It's up to you to maintain Batilla's vessel and look after your crew as you sail across the Caribbean in search of the answer to an ancient - and probably profitable - riddle. Though the character interactions are handled via crude text bubbles, you will get the chance to steer your ship and do battle with other pirate vessels in real time. Early impressions are promising, with the game comprising loads of different combat mini-games…

There she blows! Assassin's Creed Pirates gets whale hunting in latest update

Being a pirate ain't all sword fighting and rum, you know. Sometimes you have to get down to the messy stuff – whale hunting, that were the real money is. Luckily, Ubisoft has just released an update to Assassin's Creed Pirates which adds whale hunting to the navel warfare gameplay. As well as letting you harpoon the gentle giants of the deep, the update also brings a handful of other new features. Those of a zoologically persuasion will be able to collect 50 species of Caribbean fish. If this isn't your cup of grog, however, there are also two new ships and six additional boss fights to unlock. A survival mode wraps up the list of updates, challenging you to live though a wave…

Upcoming CCG Assassin’s Creed Memories lets you hop through history

Ubisoft has joined forces with Gree and PlayNext to deliver an all new free-to-play installment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise: a CCG called Assassin’s Creed Memories. Digital card-battling has been increasing in popularity recently. The genre’s ability to mix the card combat with RPG leveling and strategic elements have sucked players in, while the booster-pack IAPs have attracted publishers and developers. Ubisoft seems to be planning to tap directly into this popularity, utilising its Assassin’s Creed franchise as the foundation. Inviting you into a new mobile Animus, you have to travel through history with the aim of building a powerful guild, recruitin…


BackStab Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
BackStab Review

On one hand we've already had an Assassin's Creed game on the iOS - your mileage may vary on how successful it was for you, but we got one. On the other, Gameloft have decided to give gamers what they expected to see, albeit with a pirate-y touch in BackStab. Henry Blake has been betrayed by his supposed long-time friend Kane for crimes against his people and after four years Blake is finally given the opportunity to escape his imprisonment and seek revenge. So far, so standard, but i…

Pirates Plunder Slots Review

Splash of clans: Seabound RTS Plunder Pirates heading to iPhone and iPad this year

Game-ho! The first trailer for start-up studio Midoki's debut iOS offering Plunder Pirates, an "epic online multiplayer strategy game," has just hoved into view over the horizon. Comprised of a number of console developers who have decided to take a swim in mobile waters, the developer claims Plunder Pirates will allow you to build your very own pirate island, and then do battle on at least seven seas with other online skallywags. Apparently inspired by the "fair" free-to-play structure of games like Tiny Tower, the team has opted to make the game a freemium experience, much like comparable multiplayer base-battler Clash of Clans. Though you can sail solo if you choose, the game wi…

Chillingo is releasing base building strategy game Gang of Pirates later this year

Chilllingo is partnering with Nitro Games to bring a new social strategy game called Gang of Pirates to the App Store later this year. The premise for Gang of Pirates will be more than familiar to veterans of Clash of Clans and Boom Beach - though with some rum-swilling nautical debauchery added to the mix. You must build a stronghold on an island of pirates, and developing your base lets you better train and deck out your seafaring troops. Building your defences better fortifies the settlement. That whole thing. Once you're happy with your fortress, its time to attack your unfortunate island neighbours. Sending your fleet to battle other players switches the game to a tactical battle v…

Turn your iPad into a treasure map with Assassin's Creed IV Companion app

If you're planning to find buried treasure and sail the seven seas in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, then you're going to need that most essential of pirating tools: a map.

Now available from the App Store, the Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Companion app features a fully interactive map of the Carribean waters featured in the game. It allows you to view objectives, track your progress - even set real time waypoints for your ship to follow.   As well as using the app to help you navigate while you play, yo…
