Ubisoft has announced an Assassin's Creed: Pirates release date of December 5 on high end smartphones and tablets.
Priced at £2.99, Pirates is a standalone iOS and Android spin-off title in which players captain and upgrade their own ship. They explore the Caribbean, tend to their boat and recruit new crew members to aid them in real-time naval battles.
While it's not a companion app, the game will feature appearances from Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag characters including Blackbeard and Benjamin Hornigold.
A new mobile engine developed by Ubisoft Paris promises to deliver "breathtaking moving waters, lush islands, and gorgeous graphics".
