New Additions – Part II
Welcome to the second part of the “New Additions” post! As I said in the first, there’s been a lot of new updates to Pirate101, and KI gets ready for the full release, in 2 days!!! (At least for the Head Start). First I’ll start off with the news that…
Closed Beta Ended!
Closed Beta ended yesterday at 5:00 PM CST. Hope you had fun, but all Beta players will be included in the Head Start that begins tomorrow! All Beta testers who actually
played in the game will receive a Pioneer’s Eyepatch, which you can equip through the Token item slot, but actually appears on you character! Here’s the notes from Pirate101.com.
We’re thanking our Pirate101 Beta players with a special gift that not only screams, “I’M A PIRATE,” but also shows you’re one of our rock stars! It’s the Pioneer’s Eyepatch!
Pioneer’s Eyepatch Details:
- Equips to the Token outfit slot.
- Has a card of the Rouse healing power!
- Has no level restriction.
- Is classified as a No Trash, No Sell, and No Auction item so you’ll never accidentally delete it, and it is tradable between your characters through the Shared Bank.
- The star symbol on the patch will never be replicated on any other eyepatch in game—ever—and will let everyone know you played in Beta.
The Pioneer’s Eyepatch will be placed in your account’s gift window and will be redeemable in game starting the week of October 8th.
Note: You will not receive an Eyepatch if you played in the Pirate101 preview on 10/4/12.
As I talked about in Part One of this post, there are new payment options for Pirate101! They’ve also added some new bundles, the Cutthroat Bundle ($39), a $20, and $10 bundles available at GameStop! Take a look at the pictures!
What do you think future bundles will be like? I see some similarities between these and the Wizard101 bundles, but isn’t it supposed to be like that? 😉 I, personally, can’t wait for bundles with two person mounts! Also, if you look at the Cutthroat Bundle, you can see that you gain an entire ship! That will be pretty cool to get, especially to new players. The $20 card has 2 months of membership or 10,000 crowns, plus a Walking Octopus pet. The $10 card has 1 month of membership or 5,000 crowns, plus a Crab Pet. These will be appearing in GameStop stores all over the country, but will probably go really fast too! Get your bundles as fast as you can!
Captain’s Log – Spiral Date 414722
This is the last of the news. The most recent update in Pirate101 was pretty subtle, because they are almost finished! It mostly fixed combat bugs, and there have been quite a few Hotfixes with little bugs since then.
We’ve made several small tweaks and adjustments to the newest version of the game as we continue to polish Pirate101 in preparation for launch!
Pirate101 is about to be launched, have fun playing tomorrow on Columbus Day! (For those of you who were in Beta and/or purchased a Boochbeard Bundle.)
