Some of the gaming enthusiasts out there might be disappointed with this news but the Assassins Creed: Pirates is most likely not going to make it to the PCs or the consoles as already warned by developer Ubisoft. The title has been made specifically for the phones and tablets.
However, there is a little loophole right there for you; you can in a way enjoy the game on your PC. Thanks to Ubisoft, they have released a free browser-based version of the game which allows you to play in the browser with a either a touch input or a mouse and keyboard. And the fact that the game was developed in collaboration with Microsoft in no way interferes with the game’s ability to run perfectly fine on all browsers including Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari; apart from the IE of course. And you are just going to love this bit – as opposed to most of the titles out there, this one has the ability to run full screen.
It seems like everything has a price and now after all the good news, it is time to get to the catch here. To begin with, the nature of the game might come as a huge disappointment to you. We all know the Assassins Creed: Pirates as a shoot-em-up title in its original form but the web version is simply like a racing game where you challenge your friends to see who steers the ship fastest. The maximum you can do to make things more exciting is to change the weather conditions in case you are bored with the plain waters. Secondly, the game will only run on desktop browsers. So you are going to find no luck in case you are using mobile versions of browsers.
