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!)
