Microsoft Internet Explorer Team Partners With Ubisoft To Launch Assassin’s Creed Pirates For The Web

3

Microsoft today announced a new partnership with Ubisoft to launch the Assassin’s Creed title on the modern web with HTML5, 3D WebGL graphics, and JavaScript. Consumers worldwide can now enjoy the Assassin’s Creed Pirates game for free in five languages worldwide. This game is based on the popular iOS Assassin’s Creed Pirates game allows you to step into the shoes of Alonzo Batilla, a young captain, racing his ship through the Caribbean seas, evading mines and other hurdles, amidst searching for treasure.

This ACP game demo was developed using the Babylon.JS open source framework – today developers have a tool that makes it simpler to build interoperable 3D games like this one. And for adventurous players, we’re announcing a new developer challenge: Build your own shader with Babylon.JS and you could win an Assassin’s Creed Collector’s Black Chest Edition and an Xbox One! It only takes a few minutes and you don’t really have to be a pro developer to play with code this easy.

Unfurl the sails and with a swipe of your finger on the virtual wheel, steer the ship through the deep blue Caribbean. Race your ship through an obstacle course and compete with pirates around the world to obtain the highest score. Each time the game is launched, a variation of the original scene is delivered – with changes in the weather, time of day and location – giving you a new experience each race. Now, pin the game to your Start screen, and have it handy for those few minutes you have to spare. With split-screen browsing, you can group Skype your friends and race your ship, simultaneously.
