The very-ambitious open-world pirate action RPG Tempest finally has a release date, so you'll be happy to know that you can go all Pirates of the Caribbean on the world on April 18th on both iOS and Android. If you haven't read our earlier story on the game or haven't visited our Upcoming Games forum thread yet, Tempest will have you playing the captain of your pirate ship, engaging in ship to ship sea battles, and even storming land fortresses that dare to defy you. You can also construct, level up, and customize your own vessel, which I hope you'll call the Black Pearl, and complete either solo or co-op quests and missions.

While the game isn't an MMORPG, you can still fight other players in online PVP, which should be fun if done right. Tempest is available for Android open beta starting today, and the game is coming on both platforms April 18th.
