New update for Pirates of the Caribbean: Tides of War sets sail!

Seoul, South Korea—September 13, 2017—Joycity announces an exciting new update to its popular mobile game, Pirates of the Caribbean: Tides of War.

The new update tunes the pirate upgrade system. Whereas the game previously featured a much simpler system of hiring and firing of tiered pirates, the new update will allow players to reach the status of ”Tough Pirate”. This new tier can be reached by collecting Mermaids’ Tears, which can be obtained from Mermaid Island.

Additionally, the Mermaid Island Event has been modified to better suit the new update. When the Mermaid Island Conquer Skill is activated, an event is triggered near Mermaid Island. Both individual and rally attacks will be made available once the trigger is activated.

When a player participates in a conquest by rally attack after joining an alliance, an alert message is sent out to all alliance members. The enemy monsters then appear in waves, from weak to strong, and those who battle them in time will receive special rewards depending on the monsters’ levels.

Moreover, the new update will allow Meisters to craft high-quality Masterpiece Equipment, which is equivalent to Lv. 30 common equipment buffs. In the previous upgrade system, players were able to level up Meisters at every sixth equipment to attain high levels. Now Masterpiece Equipment can be also crafted when Meisters meet level 13.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Tides of War is a mobile strategy simulation game based on the popular “Pirates of the Caribbean” property from Disney. Since the game’s release in May of 2017, the game has been downloaded over 2 million times worldwide. The game has seen a massive fan following in North America, Europe, and Japan.
