Pirate101 is a free-to-play, pirate-themed MMOG from KingsIsle Entertainment, makers of Wizard101. The game is set in the same universe as its wizard-themed predecessor, so players can expect to continue to challenge the Clockwork Empire. Players begin the game by creating a pirate and then setting out to gain a ship and crew. Pirate101 offers swashbuckling ground combat, but its main fighting focus is comprised of ship-to-ship combat high in the sky among the skyways and floating islands in the Weave.
For the month of February in Pirate101, you can run around on a cool Friendship Jaguar and buy the Friendship Oni pet to keep you company in battles. Both are brand new additions to the game, never seen before and can be found in the Crown Shop for 4,500 Crowns each. Notice the theme though? Yes, Pirate101 is celebrating Friendships, after all this is a family game!
Pirate101 has got the holidays in swing with their 12 Days of the Spiral event, which is a cool calendar on their site! As the event name says, it will last only for 12 days and each day, they will reveal something great on the calendar. It could be new items in Crown Shop such as pets and/or mounts, new sale on bundles or free furniture.
KingsIsle is celebrating the fourth birthday of Pirate101 from now through November 2nd. During the event, Skull Island will be festively decorated and players will enjoy the gifts showered on them in celebration of the big anniversary.
Pirate101 now has a brand new dungeon, the Dreadnaught, in the Skull Island Skyway where you can get neat furniture that you will only see in Wizard101. You also have a chance of getting super cool Haywire Armada weapons.
The Pirate101 site has been updated with a new note about a rogue Dreadnaught that has its sights set on the Spiral. Surrounded by a formidable Armada, the Dreadnaught is ripe for plunder when (or if!) groups of players take it down.
