Assassin’s Creed Pirates Sets Sail on Android Through Google Play, Will Cost You $5

Assassins Creed

We have been hyping the release of Assassin’s Creed Pirates for a few weeks now and it has finally hit Google Play. The price is set at $5, but we are hoping that figure is offset by the awesomeness the game will deliver. In this title, you take command of your very own pirate ship, setting sail on the open seas of the Caribbean. 

The object is to build up your ship’s crew and the ship itself, while engaging in real-time open water warfare, trying to become the most dangerous ship on the water. There are over 50 missions and side quests, so there should be plenty of bang for your buccaneer.

Go download it from Google Play, then let us know what you think. We are sure others will be curious if the $5 is worth the adventure.

Play Link ($4.99)

    I was not sure if it will work or not on my HVGA device, so downloaded it from
    androtrix.blogspot.com
    There are many links for different GPUs,
    If it works.. Then Game worth its price, purchase it…

    It’s not bad. But injustice is taking up most of my time.

    What the crap is wrong with Ubisoft. Rayman Run Fiesta is compatible with the MAXX, Assassin’s Creed isn’t compatible with the MAXX. This is a brand new top of the line phone. What’s the deal?

    • Sirx

      Has there been an update or something? It doesn’t show up in the Play Store for my MAXX. Usually means its not supported. Granted it works perfectly well when sideloaded (and yes, I purchased the app day one for my Tranformer Infinity, which incidentally does NOT run the game well at all. Just sucks that you have to “pirate” games you’ve already purchased cause developers pick compatibility lists by using a blind pingeon and a dartboard…)

    guys you really aren’t missing out, it was a waste of $5…gameplay is very repetitive…if you have a hole in your wallet go grab knightmare tower instead which has a free demo

  • subiedude85

    Ok, I get why it doesn’t run on my TF-101 or my OG Razr but the DNA and the Moto X too? Now how am I supposed to justify this eye patch!?

    • Bootleg Zani

      Really no support for the Moto X?

  • http://www.hammertechnologies.net/ Chase Johnson

    Not compatible with my Gnex, N7-12 or my wifes Transform Ultra…oh well lack of devices and high price, I dont see this ending well.

  • Akinlabi

    Good review but I can’t just pay that amount for a new game just like that. We should have been given opportunity to test the game. No beta version. That’s too bad for a new game. I hate bugs and I don’t know if new users are experiencing that. Please have you tried this game yourself. You can write us a full review about the app after playing it. They’re too many games on Play store and I haven’t try them! http://www.androidtonic.com

    How is this NOT compatible with the moto x?!?! That’s unforgivable. I guess I can put it on my new nexus 7 but then how am I going to be a pirate at work?? Friday = ruined…

    • Executor

      If your Nexus 7 is rooted, you can just pull the .apk file from data/app, then copy it to your Moto X and sideload it. Assuming your Moto X is logged into the same Google account as your Nexus 7, it should just download the .obb file on its own. If not, you can find that in Android/obb/com.ubisoft.assassin.pirates on your internal storage partition.

  • Oliver Chen

    good stuff

  • ghogue

    No Moto X support

  • Sambit Rayginale Willkonson

    overpriced game for the android platform, sambit does not approve

    • Pratik Holla

      Its better than them nickel and diming us for every tiny thing. I am happy to see Ubisoft hasnt taken the devil’s route like EA and Gameloft have.

      • Sambit Rayginale Willkonson

        i am disgusted that every quality automobile motorsport game available on the android platform is free, but them makes you pay to win. it is true corporate greed and deception!

    • Bill Mitchell

      The $5 price tag encourages piracy, so I think it fits!

      • Sambit Rayginale Willkonson

        wow! never thought of it like that, Bill Mitchell.

        Back to Double Dragon Trilogy.

        Funny story: I actually was going to buy it, but thanks to the arbitrary compatibility restrictions app developers can put in place on the Play Store (Thanks, Google!), neither my Galaxy Nexus nor my HP Touchpad can download it, and therefore I cannot buy it, even from the web version of the store. After obtaining the .apk and .obb files from a dark corner of the Internet that shall not be named, I can confirm that it does, in fact, work on the Touchpad. It’s a little ugly, with the resolution obviously much lower than the native res of 1024×768 and scaled up to fit, but it runs smoothly and is completely playable. I haven’t tried it on my GNex yet, but I suspect the result would be the same. IMO, Google should take a hint from Amazon on how to implement compatibility restrictions: warn the user that the app is incompatible and may not work correctly on their device, but let them purchase and install it anyway. That’s what the refund period is for, right?

        Before anyone chimes in with ‘HURR DURR PIRACY BAD YOU ARE TERRIBLE PERSON’, keep in mind that if I were able to buy it, I’d have gladly done so, and if that situation ever changes, either due to me getting a new device or Ubisoft relaxing their compatibility restrictions, I /will/ do so.

        • Sirx

          Had to thumb you up, because I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve been burned by developers who WON’T LET ME PAY for their apps, only to find that it works perfectly fine on my “incompatible” device. In fact, I have NEVER come across any app or game that has truly not been able to run on any particular device.

    • Akinlabi

      Not too good for a new game!

  • John

    Yeah, I love android much more than ios but I find it quite comical how a three year old 800mhz single core cpu and 512mb of ram can easily beat out a quad core 2.3 ghz cpu with 2gb of ram. Benchmarks aren’t everything. It’s all in the games, where most of them run like a dream on ios. In my opinion gaming is the one thing that ios really excels in.

    • dazz1996

      we heard you the first time

    • Bhanupratap Singh

      So, I have Xolo A500s with 1.3 GHz dual core processor and mali400mp gpu along with 512 mb ram. Is the game compatible with that?????

  • AbbyZFresh

    WHAT? $5?

    Is this game so good to justify its price compared to the console versions?

    • drparty

      Well, it is more up front but apparently few iap’s so it’s ultimately less expensive than most similar size games in the long run.

  • John

    Great game except for the fact that it’s ugly. My 4th gen ipad runs it very smoothly but they just up scaled the resolution, plus those terrible textures are everywhere. On my galaxy S3 it’s the same deal except it runs at a locked 30fps and it has constant framerate drops. Also no nexus 7 support (2012). Good but repetitive game with tons of technical issues and bugs.

    • NobleGuy.

      Yeah there’s major technical flaws on my nexus 5, and old galaxy nexus. Yet somehow my wife iphone 4 runs it flawlessly while at the same time looking much better. Meanwhile there’s no nexus 7 support (2012) . Seems as if ios is the way to go for gaming. Then there’s the combat, while fun for fifteen minutes quickly becomes routinely repetitive.

        • JoeN

          It’s the laziness of the developers imo at this stage. Android got some help with supporting gaming better in recent versions. Time for the developers to step up

      • John

        Popes sorry, but Yeah, I love android much more than ios but I find it quite comical how a three year old 800mhz single core cpu and 512mb of ram can easily beat out a quad core 2.3 ghz cpu with 2gb of ram.

      • Johnny Bravo

        works perfectly on my n5

  • Mykakari117

    The game is great so far. Beautiful and smooth with NO IAP! No N7(2012) support and some medium load times are the only flaws i have found.

    • EvanTheGamer

      According to the updated version of Google Play there are IAP Purchases. Says it above the filesize.

      • merman1983

        Yeah – if I could know that this is a straight up game with no IAP I’d throw down $5. If they based the game around coercing purchases the game needs to be free. Make the game good – charge what its worth and I’ll buy expansion packs or w/e.

  • yodatom10

    no nexus 7(2012) support at least according to g+
