Shanghai, China – The developer Toivon Studio has confirmed the upcoming release of the long-anticipated Kingdom of Pirates 1.2 – an MMORPG for iOS. With the exception of many useful improvements, the game will also feature a brand new fishing system, which will add a new virtual currency to the game – fish. A Pawn shop will also be introduced into the game. It will be a place where different types of fish can be exchanged for valuable items.
Kingdom of Pirates is a magical story at sea, where pirates unite in order to recover the lost treasures of the legendary pirate Captain Drake. While pirates explore islands and advance to higher seas, they can spend their free time fishing. In Kingdom of Pirates 1.2., different parts of the sea, such as the Sunrise Bay, the Foggy Strait or the Trepid Seas, will allow fishing for different species of fish. Sometimes pirates can even catch treasure chests with amazing rewards.
The new Kingdom of Pirates 1.2 will feature 5 different fishing rods and dozens of fish species. Pirates can “take” their catch to the Pawn shop, where the fish can be exchanged for useful in-game items.
The lucky players among the pirates can also fish out of guild fragments. If a player collects enough of those, they will be able to access the Guild Mode levels. Then players can call on guildies to face the team mode challenges together. If the guildies team up and win, all members of the guild will receive rewards, sent to them as mail attachments.
Since its release on August 16th, Kingdom of Pirates has been downloaded several hundred thousand times from the iTunes App Store. Its latest update, Version 1.1, has received outstanding reviews from players all over the world. While Kingdom of Pirates is free-to-play, players can also accelerate their progress in the game by purchasing rubies.
Rubies can be used to speed-up cooldowns, purchase rum, collect gold, and buy materials for weapon upgrades. Ruby purchases can also give players VIP ranks, which they can then use for an abundance of privileges like bonus training slots, additional bag slots, and extra daily quests.
“This game is a ton of fun,” one player raved in an App Store review. “The tutorial was great and you can do fine without paying for in-game items.”
Another player agreed, calling the multiplayer game “the best pirate game app” with a “solid rpg style.”
So far, players have been very impressed with the game’s design. “This game brings back memories of the early Final Fantasy games,” said one player on the iTunes App Store. “It’s like seeing an old friend again. Love it.”
Kingdom of Pirates players are from all over the world, and some enjoy showing off their national pride by creating and joining guilds that represent their respective countries. Players in the same guild can send each other guidie gifts and avenge one another in PVP battles against enemy pirates.
The Kingdom of Pirates community has been growing rapidly at an astounding rate. Version 1.1 bears a whopping 4.5 out of 5 stars in the iTunes App Store.
