Shiver me timbers! Assassin's Creed: Pirates sailing into mobile seas on December 5

At this point we could spend forever talking about ye scurvy dogs and walking the plank, but that's not as important as the news that a new Assassins Creed game will be sailing our way on December 5. Assassins Creed: Pirates is a stand alone, spin off title from the latest in the console series, and it's all about Pirates. Funnily enough.

You're a ships captain in the Carribean – but not Jack Sparrow – and you have to manage your crew, sail your ship and hunt for treasure. All part of a Pirate's life. The trailer up top gives us a little flavor of what to expect, and it looks like we're in for a treat with some pretty impressive looking graphics. So expect it to be a pretty hefty download as well.

It's due to cost $4.99 when it docks on December 5, and we're pretty excited to see what it's like. In the meantime, sing us a sea shanty in the comments below if you're looking forward to this! (OK, I'll stop now!)

I'm not a fan of the Pirates theme for AC. The mobile app does look pretty tho.

From what I hear the naval combat is the best thing about the latest AC - if this turns out well I'm going to be very excited (as I'm in-console-able at the moment).

I was expecting for a third-person action-adventure game like a mini version of Black Flag.

Back to what I was saying... And what we're gonna get is sort of the Naval Combat mini game port. Hmmm... Maybe it's for the better.
