With the release of Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution last week, this week Sid Meier’s Pirates is now available on the Windows Phone marketplace. With surprise to many, the reviews on the marketplace so far have been very positive, especially highlighting the great graphics and controls. Once again, 2K has done an excellent job bringing both Civilization Revolution, and now Pirates, to the Windows Phone. Pirates is now available for a surprisingly low price of $2.99. The Xbox LIVE game is published by 2K, downloads for 224 MB (much larger than Civilization Revolution) and releases as version 220.127.116.11. English is the only supported language at the moment.
With Pirates now available, you can dominate the high seas on your Windows Phone right now, or take the free trial for a pirate’s life adventure.
