With Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag setting sail across PC, current and next generation consoles, Ubisoft has launched a pair of mobile offerings to extend the pirate experience. The Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Companion App and Assassin’s Creed Pirates are both available for download on Android devices.
While Assassin’s Creed Pirates serves an original interactive adventure set during the 19th Century, the Companion App unlocks a second screen experience for consoles. The app includes an interactive world map, game progress tracker and treasure map. The Kenway’s Fleet feature takes the Black Flag experience outside the living room, enabling gamers to manage their fleet and send ships on trading missions throughout the world.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag tells the story of Edward Kenway, who falls from privateering for the Royal Navy into piracy as the war between the major Empires comes to an end. Edward is a fierce pirate and seasoned fighter who soon finds himself embroiled in the ancient war between Assassins and Templars. Set at the dawn of the 18th Century, the game features some of the most infamous pirates in history, such as Blackbeard and Charles Vane, and takes players on a journey throughout the West Indies during a turbulent and violent period of time later to become known as the Golden Age of Pirates.
