Pirates Online Update To Add Customization Options & Emotes
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

This month, Pirates of the Caribbean Online players will be able to give their customized Pirate avatars a whole new look. Disney Online will introduce tattoo parlors, jewelry stores, and tailor shops to offer a variety of new character customization options to players. New additions to the game will also include character emotes, an updated player matching system, and an improved quest tracking system.

Adding to the already extensive character creation system, Disney Online will introduce new customization options including new hairstyles, tattoos and jewelry and clothing, including three brand-new coats inspired by members of the Brethren Court.

Tattoo parlors, jewelry stores, and tailor shops will be added and, also as part of the Avatar Customization update, Disney Online will add the first round of “emotes” to the game. Emotes give players a whole new way of communicating by allowing players’ avatars to do a variety of actions including dancing, laughing, clapping, and celebrating.

Disney Online has also made changes to the Lookout System – an in-game system that matches players up with others looking to engage in the same activity. Players can now instantly see their percentage of finding a match (high, medium, or low) to help determine how long it will take before a match is found. Players can also now get more closely matched with other players that are at the same notoriety level as themselves.

In addition, Disney Online has also made enhancements to the Quest tracking system. Now when players are in the “return to townsperson” stage of completing a Quest, they simply must follow the ray of light and the yellow arrow at their feet to return to their townsperson.

Disney Online has additional content planned for 2008 including expanding ship customization, extending quest story lines, and adding more enemies and challenges.
