Internet Explorer and Ubisoft Team Up for Assassin’s Creed Pirates


You might find yourself re-downloading Internet Explorer today. And no, it’s not because you’ve drifted into the Twilight Zone. Internet Explorer and Ubisoft have banded together to bring gamers everywhere Assassin’s Creed Pirates, a web-based Assassin’s Creed game that’s free-to-play! The game is available in five different languages as well!

Assassin’s Creed Pirates places you in the world of Alonzo Batilla, a young pirate captain, hurtling through the Caribbean sea in search of untold treasures. The new game was created using the Babylon.JS open source framework. According to Window’s blog they’re also challenging developers of all kinds to build their very own shader with Babylon.Js. Of course, there is a prize! They are offering an Assassin’s Creed Collector’s Black Chest edition bundled with an Xbox One. If only my developer skills were existent, but they do encourage everyone to play around with their “easy” code.

Check out the rest of Window’s blog post to get the full details. I’ll be off searching for Caribbean treasure! And hopefully rum, lots of rum.
