Assassin's Creed Pirates boarding Windows and Windows Phone soon

The naval warfare game Assassin's Creed Pirates has set sail through the turbulent cross-platform seas and will reach the lands of Windows and Windows Phone on August 14. A web-based version optimized for Internet Explorer is already available to try out.

The game takes place in the wonderfully tropical setting shared by the Xbox title Assassin's Creed: Black Flag. Players have to hire a crew, plunder boats, and carefully time and aim their cannon shots to discourage pursuers.

Check out our hands-on demo of the iPad version of Assassin's Creed Pirates to get a feel for the gameplay. How many of you guys have played Black Flag? Been itching for a bit of piratey action on mobile?

Thanks Aero_Smash!
