Beta signups for new Pirates of the Caribbean MMO are live

In case you weren’t sick of looking at Johnny Depp’s face, here comes another stab at a Pirates of the Caribbean MMO. No, it’s not Pirates of the Caribbean Online, and it’s not the player emulator for Pirates of the Caribbean Online either; this is Pirates of the Caribbean: Tides of War, a Disney-sanctioned mobile MMORTS by South Korean studio Joycity. And it’s got Depp’s smarmy mug all over it.

“In-game, players will become pirates in the world of the Pirates of the Caribbean and will experience different playstyles with various strategies through building and ship construction and troops training. Furthermore, players can form an alliance to battle against each other or defeat common monsters floating the sea. Equally, players will encounter familiar characters from Pirates of the Caribbean, including Jack Sparrow, Captain Barbossa and Will Turner.”

You won’t find her on the official site, but there’s a picture of some girl buried in Google Play, but it’s not like she’s super important or absurdly famous or anything, so let’s not mention her for some reason.

“Global pre-registration” — i.e., beta test signups — are live on the official site and on Google Play. Hey, at least we can all spell “Caribbean” now.

I was mildly interested when I first glanced at the headline – then I saw “mobile.” ;)

Same here. Got excited for min, thought we were getting a real Pirate mmo & then I saw “Mobile mmorts” and all interest immediately vanished.

Mobile mmorts, this sounds like a cash grab. Guessing it’ll be heavy time gating that you can pay to bypass.

More like two, if it even makes it past year one.

I don’t even have to look at the app page to know that its a Clash of Clans-like. That is all the term MMORTS seems to be these days.

And Clash isn’t even an MMORTS. There is no playing together at all. What you could loosely call multiplayer is just you vs someones base. Even then, if you count that as 2 players its still not massively as its just 2 in one shared experience.

Low effort licensed mobile cash in from a foreign studio long after a major IP has seen its peak?

Check.

I was interested right up until I read “mobile MMORTS”.

…well, I wish them the best of luck. They can’t do much worse with the IP than the previous game did.

You certainly can’t do worse than mobile MMORTS.
