Assassin’s Creed Pirates Update Brings New Content

If you’ve already pillaged through the content in Assassin’s Creed Pirates, Ubisoft has just given you reason to pop open the app again. They’ve released a new update that adds new missions, achievements, and combat elements to the game.

The new map is Nassau, and the developers promise it brings with it the game’s most challenging gameplay yet. According to the press release, “New defense and dodge mechanics have been introduced, allowing players to destroy cannonballs mid-fire and offering more counterattack capabilities.” Hopefully that will spice up the combat, since repetitive ship battles was one of the complaints we had about the game in our review.

The new content contains one new story mission, along with 10 additional side quests and a new social feature that lets you see how your buddies are faring on the high seas.
