PLAYMOBIL Pirates, the first PLAYMOBIL game for a digital platform, is now available as a free download on iOS and is coming soon to Google Play. The app is launched worldwide in ten different languages.* The launch is the result of a collaboration between PLAYMOBIL, Germany's largest toy manufacturer, and Gameloft, a leading global publisher of digital and social games.
