    The Most Notorious Pirate in the Caribbean is YOU!

    Disney has launched the promotional website for their upcoming interactive game, Pirates of the Caribbean Online, at www.pirateslegend.com. It's slated to debut some time in 2007.

    In the game, you'll create your own pirate character, assemble a crew and set sail for adventure. You can become skilled at weaponry, accumulate great wealth, do battle with fellow players, or partner with them to form pirate guilds.

    Here are some screen shots from the game:




    No word on if you get the redhead or not.

    Disney promises more news and plenty of downloads on the website as the launch date approaches.

    I'm not big on elaborate online games, but this one sounds very exciting.

    Re: The Most Notorious Pirate in the Caribbean is YOU!

    i'm wondering how much per month this is going to be.

    that's 2 pirate mmo's that are coming out soon. and i have to say the lead contender is Pirates of the Burning Sea.

    seems kinda interesting that they'd throw this out there.

    i wonder what kind of community this'll cater to.

    will it be a skill system or level? will there be ship to ship pvp? what about the RP aspects?

    so many questions that i dont think they got around to answering

    The graphics look like LucasArts is helping them with it. Very cartoony.
    Growing older is manditory
    Growing up is however, optional

    Re: The Most Notorious Pirate in the Caribbean is YOU!

    What's on the website is really just a tease right now--some screenshots, concept art and a promo video. Not a lot of specifics on how the gameplay will be, and nothing about what it will cost.

    This is the initial press release, issued during E3:


    DISNEY ONLINE’S PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN MASSIVELY MULTIPLAYER ONLINE GAME UNVEILED AT E3 2006

    Upcoming Game Based on Popular Film Franchise Allows Players to Interact with Movie Characters and Live the Legend
    In-Depth Game Web Site Debuts at PiratesLegend.com

    NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – May 10, 2006 – Disney Online is unveiling the first images and a playable version of the never-before-seen Pirates of the Caribbean Online game at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) on May 10-12th in booth #1024, South Hall. Simultaneous to the game’s unveiling at E3, a new promotional Web site will debut at www.pirateslegend.com. The massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), slated for release in 2007, is based on the popular film franchise and will allow players to experience the world captured on screen. In the game, players will interact with Jack Sparrow, Will Turner, Elizabeth Swann and other characters made popular in the movie franchise, as they embark on exciting quests in search of treasure and notoriety.

    "The unique, expansive world of Pirates of the Caribbean is in many ways ideally suited for an MMO," stated Mike Goslin, vice president, Virtual Reality Studio for Disney Online. "Our development team is having tremendous fun creating an immersive adventure based on these memorable characters, exotic locales, and epic mythology. We have challenged ourselves to create a game that gamers will enjoy but also appeals to a broad audience."

    Capturing the high seas and swashbuckling action found in both "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" and the upcoming "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest," players embark on quests for adventure and treasure in an effort to become the Caribbean’s most legendary pirate. Featuring hundreds of customization options, players create and customize their own pirate, form a crew, and set sail on the high seas. Along the way they will interact with and learn skills from the notorious Jack Sparrow, forge alliances with thousands of other players, hunt for buried treasure on uncharted isles, battle evil undead forces and face off against numerous enemies on land and sea.

    "E3 presents an exciting opportunity for us to introduce Pirates of the Caribbean Online to fans of both the film franchise and MMO games," stated Steve Parkis, vice president of Premium Products for Disney Online. "We’re looking forward to seeing fans first-hand reactions as they ‘live the legend’ at E3."
    Pirates of the Caribbean Online is in development by Disney Online’s VR Studio, creators of the critically acclaimed Disney’s Toontown Online, the industry’s first MMORPG designed for kids and families. The game is being developed to appeal to a broad audience from teens to adults and will be available for a monthly subscription fee. Pirates of the Caribbean Online will be published by Disney Online Premium Products. Additional game information and exclusive game updates can be found at www.pirateslegend.com.
