Pirate-inspired Side-Scrolling MMO, Pockie Pirates Launching Open Beta Early July

Get to grips with the Warship system ahead of the open beta testing

NGames, a leading online gaming publisher, is proud to announce the on-going success of the closed beta period for its pirate-inspired MMO, Pockie Pirates.

Thanks to excellent player feedback and successful gameplay testing during the closed beta phase, NGames is ready to open Pockie Pirates to all interested players this July.

Set in the era of pirates, the game casts players as a young pirate who dreams of becoming the ultimate King of the Pirates and obtaining the greatest treasure of the sea.

Featuring an exciting blend of strategy and tactics with an entertaining game plot, Pockie Pirates packs cute characters and quality-designed backgrounds, combined with dazzling skills to present gamers a thrilling and epic adventure around the sea.

Warship System

A solid warship is a pirate's most important vehicle. Without a sturdy warship, a pirate is doomed to a life of picking up scraps from the bootstraps of other more successful plunderers.

Pockie Pirates' well received innovative warship system is one of the game's most vital gameplay mechanics.

The Warship interface allows players to upgrade their ships with gold and silver, increasing attributes and key stats such as physical attack power, magical attack power, defense, speed and HP.

Like characters, ships earn EXP for successfully guiding pirate crews through their perilous missions. When the EXP slot is full, the warship will upgrade and additional attributes increase in tandem.

But that's not all– the warship system also adds a wicked tactical facet for the plucky pirate captains. Captains must arrange their crew members during battles by placing them in suitable places on their vessel. A well organized crew is the key to success when coming face-to-face with opposing pirates. If you're crew don't respond with an "aye aye!", it's time to make them walk the plank.

The available places and options a captain has to arrange his crew increase with the warship refit.

When a warship reaches full capacity, players can order a refit of the warship to accommodate more crew. After refitting, both the appearance and attributes of the warship will be upgraded.

The Pockie Pirates open beta is coming early July. Become the King of the Pirates and join Pockie Pirates on Game321. Players can pre-register at the official website here: http://pirates.game321.com
