Designed as a thrilling blend of role-playing and action Pirates of the Caribbean takes place in a large group of Caribbean islands during the golden age of piracy and high seas adventure. You will take command of a ship and its crew, swordfight with other captains, accept and complete daring quests, chase rumors of dangers and riches, and change allegiances amongst the colonial powers in the game. Through skill and daring, you will have the ability to obtain more power than the toughest captains in history ever dreamed possible.

You will be able to customize your captain, crew, skills, and attributes to their individual liking. During shore leave on the many fanciful islands, players can interact with townspeople and shopkeepers to replenish stores of ammo and crew, and explore the wilderness in search of adventure and treasure!

A party-based system on land and at sea allows you to hire friendly captains to form small fleets of ships for trade or battle, and your own band of adventurers when on land. Ultimately, you will be able to control your destiny by following the game story or sailing off in a search of pirate loot.

Pirates of the Caribbean features advanced AI, incredibly detailed characters and vessels, breath taking views at sea, and lush, exotic environments. Enhancing the game's realism, wind and water conditions will affect how ships sail and fight. Day and night lighting and jaw-dropping water effects make the game come alive.

KEY FEATURES

- An epic role-playing game on land and at sea
- Gorgeous graphics and realistic weather effects
- Open-ended gameplay set in exotic locales
- Exciting high seas battles and thrilling duels
- Inspired by the feature film coming July 9th

Ahoy there everyone, and a happy new year!


This one is one that was literately years in the making. It could have carried on, but there always comes a moment when you need to draw a line. So Pieter Boelen as his final act on this mod released the final version of Build 14. Which you can download here on ModDB and the PiratesAhoy! website since yesterday. The last mod update article we had shared was back in 2016, so let us take a small glance on what has been added since. If you haven’t played since you may find something new.

For starters there have been changes and improvements on various storylines. Grey Roger’s “Ardent” has been extended and bugs have been fixed. Same for Jack Rackham’s “Gold Bug” and “Woodes Rogers”. The latter also got a second part, which fans of the first part should check out. Another storyline that got some love is “Devlin Opera”. Which used to be classified as unfinished, but BathtubPirate fixed this by working on it. Now there should be more to it.

New side quests were also added. Grey Roger made "Crystal Skull", "Silver for Cartagena", and "Natividad Incident" for Horatio Hornblower (both FreePlay and storyline). While Bartolomeu o Portugues made "A Family Story" and "A French Companion" for José Joaquím Almeida. Plus there now are background profession specific “trophy quests”. So far the one for agents was made by Grey Roger, the one for engineers by Jack Rackham, and the gambler’s one by both pedrwyth and Jack Rackham.

Davy Jones, and his crew, got new character models by Karlik Nos.
And on the same topic, his ship and cabin also got new models I borrowed from Sea Dogs: To Each His Own.

Women can now also sit down, and be assigned governors.tavern women2


As for new ships; some that are used in quests or as character ships are the following:

“FastGalleon5” for “Ardent” by Grey Roger.ship1


A new version of the cursed Mariana by GhostOfDeath91 for Ricardo Orellana, his free play character.ship2


A modified version of Armada's "Kreyser" Class Frigate by me. Used as the “Mefisto” in the "Revolutions" period.ship3

Last but not least, there have been new characters to play as. One of them being Drake Stranton, from the novel Cursed Vengeance by Brent Jackson. Model made by Jack Rackham and Grey Roger.CV2


There is that, and more I couldn’t add here and now. So what are ye waiting for!? Go out to the seas ye scurvy sea dogs, will you!

WOW HI Everyone! So now that PA! is openly discussing the newest version of GOF ERAS2 (2.6.0) from Buccaneer's Reef Buccaneersreef.com on their website - I thought I would give a shout out for everyone visiting over here to come on over and give our new version a try. Most stable version ever in DX9 with 64 bit coming soon. Also more content than ever with over 600 distinctively different skinned ships on over 200 different models, almost 600 items, several hundred weapons and weapon combinations as well as 136 different playable historical characters (most being actual real existing pirates or prominent captains of the time possessing distinctive ships named with their original names), new locations and more! YARRRR!!!! MK

Someone needs to bring this game to steam or something. There are so many people who want this including me!!

No not Steam, GoG would be better. But even then why must every game still be paid for? Surely some games should be released free to the public domain when they are well past their time.

Ive downloaded New horizons build 14 beta 4.0 upon starting the game i noticed that the ports in the world map aren't showing. it only shows the name of the island then you have to manually sail to the said port or just do a quick jump. but when you look at the world map you wouldnt know where is the port on that specific island because it doesn't show? any ideas how to fix this ?
