Ubisoft announced two Assassin’s Creed titles at today’s Digital Days event. This includes the HD upgrade of the PSVita title, Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, but what is more surprising is the announcement of Assassin’s Creed Pirates for smartphones and tablets. 

Assassin’s Creed Pirates is not a companion app to Assassin’s Creed IV:Black Flag – it is a stand-alone game which features the naval combat pioneered in Assassin’s Creed III. Just like AC4, Pirates is set in the Caribbean, but this time players are cast in the role of Alonzo Batilla. Players will take control of their ship, manage the crew, upgrade the vessel and fight in real time ship battles to uncover the lost treasure of La Buse. Assassin’s Creed Pirates will also feature a day-night cycle and changing weather systems which Ubisoft Paris promises will have a big impact on the gameplay.

What’s also of note is Ubisoft Paris’s 3D visuals on mobile. The game looks to be showing off exactly what modern mobile devices are capable of. These screenshots should prove that the engine is top-notch, as it almost looks like a console game.
