Apple Games Features Pirates Of The Caribbean Online
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

Apple Games has set sail with a new feature on the recently released Pirates of the Caribbean Online. The game allows thousands of players to experience the adventures made famous in the films and explore beyond these boundaries in a quest to become the most legendary pirate on the high seas. Apple's article includes comments from Disney VR Studio vice president Mike Goslin, and Pirates of the Caribbean co-screenwriter Terry Rossio.

There are two types of quests in the game: Story Quests, which advance the narrative and must be completed, and Opportunity Quests, which you receive from townsfolk, shopkeepers, island governors, or even members of the Royal Navy. Opportunity Quests are optional, but they give you greater insight into the game world, and you still earn notoriety points from them. Any time you need help with a quest, you can enlist friends to join your crew, increasing the odds in your favor.

“I’ve been having a blast crewing up on ships and causing havoc on the high seas,” remarks Goslin. “It’s fun whether I’m captaining my own ship or sailing with someone else. I think the multiplayer ships are one of the biggest differentiators in the game; they’re a lot of fun.”

His team drew heavily on the movies, but the game isn’t set during a specific point in those stories’ timeline. Goslin explains: “We’ve tried hard to weave new characters and stories into the existing mythology from the movies, so we inevitably expand the stories of the movie characters as we develop their new relationships and situations. We also need to extend almost every aspect of the mythology because our world needs to support hundreds of hours of gameplay, as compared with a few hours covered in the typical movie.”
Head over to the link below to check out the rest of the feature.
