Is That A Cutlass In Your Pocket, Or Is It Assassin's Creed: Pirates

Alongside the playable demos at last week's Ubisoft press day stood a lone television looping a trailer for something called Assassin's Creed: Pirates. It's a new Assassin's Creed game for mobile devices, and what do you know? It features pirates.

According to press materials, the game will cast you as Alonzo Batilla, a pirate (drink!) who heads out in search of a mysterious treasure called… Big Whoop. No, wait, just kidding, it's actually treasure that belonged to a guy named La Buse. I wonder if La Buse was... also a pirate? (Drink!)

According to the fact sheet, players will "cross paths with the Templars and the Assassins as they struggle for supremacy and meat the famed figures of the era: Blackbeard, Bellamy and Hornigold. Enrich your journey with dozens of side missions, treasures, quests perks and achievements." So, sounds like Batilla is neither an Assassin nor a Templar. Maybe this should just be called "Pirate's Creed"? (Drink!)

I didn't get to play the game, but it sure sounds like a mobile pirate thing; maybe something similar to if a bit less involved than the (very fun) iPad port of Sid Meier's Pirates! (Drink!).

Here are some screenshots Ubi sent over, which show how super excited we're all supposed to be about pirate ships.

    Arrr, this be looking mighty fine for a mobile game!

    Back in me day all we had was Snake. Then came Snake II and it was like going from rum to 12 year old aged whiskey.

    And now... this!

    EDIT: Of course, back then all ye had to do for some cash was to rob some poor schmucks and their supply ship. Now you need a credit card to buy gold coins for ship upgrades. How times have changed.

      Shiver me timbers matey,

      We pirates need rum to function but for everything else, there's MasterCard.

        Getting drunk in a bar and then raiding a ship with your mates... Priceless. For everything else, theres MasterCard.

      WOW! Most people replace their phone every year or to but you wait a long time between upgrades huh?

        Hey, if I had a choice (i.e. I didn't need it for work) I'd still be using my trusty Nokia 8250!

    According to the fact sheet, players will “cross paths with the Templars and the Assassins as they struggle for supremacy and * meat * the famed figures of the era:

    Did Ubi spell that wrong ot was it you Kirk? Or is it a rather unpleasant verb?
