So What's New?
Today I will be announcing some more details about the Pirate Seas beta 8.0 update. Though the update is coming along very well, I came across some setbacks this past month. The update has to release at the beginning of the to be the same time as voting site bidding to conclude, if not, it would be a waste of valued donation money. Since we will not make the October 1st deadline as originally planned, we will instead release Friday, November 3rd and take the extra time to work on more content and polish the server.
New content sneak peak
This update will introduce lots of new content and gameplay improvements, the following are just a fraction of what will be released.
To start with, the new region "Woodland Waters" will be added to the world as demonstrated below. It features new locations, quests, loot islands, and more!
Next up we have 3 new dungeons coming up in the update, one of which being "An Ancient Evil." This dungeon is found at the 'Aztec Ruins' ruins location; on the continent in the "Sea of Splendor" region. Stead123 is doing a wonderful job on the bosses' plugin work and If i do say so myself, its a very fun dungeon.
This update will also rework some of the current gear as well as add dozens of more custom made weapons and armor (below are just a few). Beta 8.0 will also feature improvements to gear balancing, allowing non-donators to obtain weapons and armor just as good as premium rank gear.
As previously mentioned, 8.0 will host multiple new locations including a huge and unique one called Dead Man's Pass; this location is locked at Level 18+ and features some exclusive content that we'll get into later.
Last thing for today is a new farming system that will replace the old one, featuring new renting mechanics and Crop Islands. More information explaining how this will work will be revealed soon.
That about sums it up for now guys! This is just a small fraction of the new update content that I can't wait to show you guys. Until then, stay scurvy. ;)
