Cloud Pirates hits early access and adds convoy mode
Hear ye, hear ye! Pirates are terrorizing the skies with the aid and comfort of ruthless players! So-called "early access" has ushered in an era of fear and cutthroat commutes, and experts say that this is only the beginning!
It's true: The PvP airship simulator Cloud Pirates went into early access yesterday with Update 1.1: Gold Rush. The patch adds a new convoy mode in which a team of players work together to guard a shipment of ore as a second team seeks to steal it for their own greedy souls.
The developers took this opportunity to answer many community questions about the game, including where it will go from here. "We have several large items prepared for this year and it’s too early to share most of them, but we can safely say that the two upcoming big things are competitive (rating) battles and improving the Cloud Pirates Brotherhood (clan) system. Statistics, ladders, ratings and competitive gameplay is one of the main directions for Cloud Pirates."
