SEGA Europe Ltd. and SEGA of America have announced that fan-favourite Puzzle Pirates will be coming soon to the iPad and sailing onto additional tablet devices in the spring and summer of 2013, respectively. Offering a shared play experience, the new tablet version will feature full cross-platform play with the current service now available for PC, Linux, and Mac players.
Three Rings, Sega’s San Francisco-based free-to-play studio, is refreshing and improving Puzzle Pirate‘s award-winning multiplayer experience specifically for the tablet, bringing every aspect of the vast open-ended pirate world to touch control. In Puzzle Pirates, players customise their own buccaneer and travel the ocean from island to island, earning their keep on the high seas, competing and co-operating in a fully-realised pirate economy. The Puzzle Pirates world features over twenty interactive solo and multiplayer puzzles through which players can show off their skills, including puzzles for sword fighting, hauling treasure and the prized skills needed to sail a pirate ship.
Featuring an updated user interface with optimised touchscreen controls, Puzzle Pirates promises to deliver a large and active community of people who eat, play and even talk like pirates. Players just gaining their sea legs will revel in a rich, deep and varied world that is ready for exploration when Puzzle Pirates launches on iPad this spring and other tablets in summer 2013. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Puzzle Pirates and other forthcoming titles from SEGA.
