Once a pirate, always a pirate is what they say! Even when you’ve found yourself at the end of a mighty fine lootin’ and shootin’ journey out to sea, there’s always another adventure just lying in wait around the corner: especially when it comes to Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Pirates. And in true Assassin’s Creed fashion, the new content has already started rolling out less than a month after the game’s initial release, to keep you cruising across the Seven Seas while the wind is still fresh in your sails.

The bulk of the update is centered on a brand new campaign mission that’s set around a gorgeous new map called Nassau. The Nassau map is said to bring a higher level of challenge into the fold, as seasoned Pirates players will now have to master new dodging mechanics, which effectively let them take down enemy cannonballs in mid-air. 10 new side missions will also accompany the new campaign, leading way for more treasures to be uncovered and more ships to be unlocked.

And finally, the first Pirates update will also be adding in a new social component that allows all mobile buccaneers to compare their journey at sea with other players in the game. We happened to think that Assassin’s Creed Pirates was a pretty fine swashbuckling good time when we reviewed the game back in December, and so more of the same surely won’t disappoint. The new update is officially available today for both iOS and Android versions of the game.
