Assassin's Creed Pirates makes its way back to the Windows Phone Store [Update: for just $1.99]

Last month Assassin's Creed Pirates was released for both Windows Phone and Windows 8 devices. Shortly afterwards, the Windows Phone version was pulled from the Store due to widespread crashes and errors.

The developers over at Ubisoft have apparently patched things up and AC Pirates is once again available in the Windows Phone Store.

The game has you playing the role of young captain Alonzo Batilla as he sails the Caribbean, breaking all the rules, challenging empires and building his own personal fortune.

Unfortunately, the re-release fails to add a trial version to AC Pirates with the full version (not available for low-memory devices) running $4.49. You also have a Windows 8 version that will also cost you $4.49 (not universal).

We'll try to get a full review up on the Windows Phone version shortly but in the meantime, you can catch Paul Acevedo's thoughts on the Windows 8 version of the game here.

Thanks, everyone, for the tips!

Update: The two games appear to be on sale with the Windows Store stating this deal will last seven more days.
