Prepare yourself for the open seas of your mobile network as Assassin's Creed Pirates sets sail on smartphones and tablets.

This new trailer for Assassin's Creed Pirates, the mobile companion game for Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag gives us a peek at the game's naval combat and customization options. You'll get to build your crew up from a selection of scoundrels and ne'er-do-wells. They'll fulfill roles such as gunner, lookout, first mate, bosun, pilot and deckhand.

Similarly, you'll be able to customize your ship and choose from different classes of ships such as schooner, brig and frigate. The bit of gameplay we see features ship battles in raging storms, calm seas and plenty of cannonballs in flight.

Assassin's Creed Pirates will be released on iOS and Android devices on Dec. 5. Watch the trailer above to get psyched for the swashbuckling action.
