Welcome to the Caribbean


At the end of the Golden Age of Buccaneer, as the armadas of Western Europe struggle to tame the wilds of the New World, the last of the great pirates of the Caribbean and their mighty ships must wage epic battles for freedom, even as they are caught between encroaching civilization and the awesome power of the living myths and legends of the Seven Seas.

Our story begins with a high-stakes poker match on a mysterious cloud-covered isle...'

Pirates of the Caribbean is an epic adventure set against the backdrop of history. It is a world where the real coexists with the unreal and where the conflict between what is primal and what is civilized is raging out of control.

Live the Legend

Jack Sparrow
Penniless and imprisoned, your life as a pirate is launched when Jack Sparrow helps you escape from jail. You learn the basics of survival early -- swordplay and cannoneering –– and learn to navigate the Caribbean, its seas teeming with the supernatural and the sinister. Every sail on the horizon marks a possible enemy, and every port town is filled with shifty citizens.

Master the mystic arts of Voodoo and use it to aid your friends and defeat your enemies. The power of Voodoo is at the command of Jolly Roger as well, but he uses it to bring the dead back to a mockery of life - animating the skeletons of long dead pirates whose fighting skills remain very much alive. The undead stalk the land and crew their own rotting yet deadly ships at sea.

You'll need gold to survive. Luckily, there are games to be found in most taverns -- the poker and blackjack tables await.

Nothing in Pirates of the Caribbean Online comes without a price, and you'll find yourself on Quests as you strive to increase your notoriety. No one but you has your survival in mind, so train hard with your weapons -- your cutlass, your dagger, your pistol, your grenades -- they're the only thing between you and defeat. If you've a mind for it, dabble in Voodoo and fight with hexes as well as steel.

Find a ship and crew it with your Friends to begin your adventures on the high seas. When the time is right -- when you're strong enough and rich enough, that is –– step up to a bigger, more powerful vessel. There's a hull for every taste. Sloops are renowned for their sheer speed while Galleons can accommodate large amounts of cargo. Frigates are built for battle, ramming hulls, and blasting out broadside after broadside from their heavy cannons. Run from them or get one for yourself.

With your increasing skills, your Notoriety will grow, but beware! Treachery and deceit lie at every point of the compass. As Jack Sparrow well knows, even the most minor encounters can have far-reaching consequences.
