7:11 AM Will Sterling 0 Comments

This week we've been hard at work finalizing our next update and preparing it for release. Our next update which feature a brand new pirate island, which we call tier 3 pirate islands. These will be some of the toughest islands in the game with a good variety of enemies and loot.

Here's a look at what you can expect so far.

A New Look

These islands will in general be more flat with less trees than normal. They will also have pirate forts where a lot of the pirates like to congregate. In addition to some new visuals, these islands will also contain some exclusive content like resources and gold chests.

New Loot

Not only with these new pirate islands contain new structures but they will also contain some really good new loot. In fact, this update we are introducing our first legendary items, but you'll have to figure out how to get those on your own...

New Enemies

These islands will introduce a band of pirates known as Pirate Elites. There will also be Captains and Bounty Hunters that will come after to you if you kill too many of their crew. With enough effort you might even enrage the Pirate King and get him to reveal himself.

New Quests

Merchants that spawn past the 50 unit mark in the world are also getting a couple new quests that involve these islands. They of course will have some good rewards to go along with the task involved. 

We are currently planning to push this update to the Steam testing branch early next week, so stay tuned!
