Sid Meier’s Pirates! now available for iPad

Posted

2K Games announced today that Sid Meier’s Pirates!, the classic swashbuckling high-seas adventure, is now available on the App Store for iPad® for $6.99. The app allows would-be buccaneers to serve as captain as they raid and plunder the 17th Century Caribbean. As the fearless leader, players can successfully navigate pirate ship battles and triumphantly dispatch opponents in clanging sword fights using an all-new touch screen interface while they embark on a quest to save their family from the evil Marquis de la Montalban.

The Sid Meier’s Pirates! App is an adventure-driven entertainment experience where swashbucklers descend upon unsuspecting ports of call to assemble a motley crew of seafaring bandits. Captains can collect secret treasure maps, undertake daring missions, wreak havoc with local townspeople, and swiftly hand out pirate-style justice to local braggarts before setting sail for breathtaking open sea engagements.

The Sid Meier’s Pirates! App is full of classic mini-games from the original title, such as Sword Fighting, Ship Combat and Dancing. In addition, the game offers iPad 2-exclusive features, including visuals that are optimized for the iPad, the ability to “piratize” photos to display on ships, and Game Center support.

The Sid Meier’s Pirates! App is available now at the App Store.
