Pirate City showcase, pt II: enter the arena!

Hey, pirates! Previously, we have already told you about the building of your own settlement in Pirate City, which is one of the central features of this addon. Today, we are going to shed some more light on the content of the upcoming DLC for Tempest: a land-based battle arena.

Yes, you heard it right — this time the only person you can rely on is your own captain. Will you be able to survive the ever growing waves of pirates, skeletons, and god knows what else?

To enter the arena you will have to investigate a new marker on your map that should be located near your own city. Once you reach the destination, you will have an opportunity to choose the weapon and start testing your combat skills. Unlike the regular island based missions you got used to while playing Tempest (first introduced in Treasure Lands DLC), the arena is going to offer you space limited zone that will get filled with enemies for you to fight with.

You can expect to be handsomely rewarded for each wave of foes you defeat. The longer you can survive without leaving the arena, the bigger the reward is going to be! Also, you will be able to participate in a global arena records book that will give you an opportunity to compete against other captains from all around the world.

Become an absolute champion of the arena, and earn the reputation of the most fearsome and respected pirate in known history!

Pirate City showcase: building the city of your dreams

Ahoy, pirates! We have recently announced the Pirate City DLC, and we plan to share the details regarding its most prominent features over the coming weeks. Today, we will go over the ability to build and develop your own settlement and become the richest and most famous captain of them all!

What does it take to be a governor?

Generally, your city will have 3 stages of development, and as a promising governor, you get to control a simple settlement first (stage 0). This will net you a warehouse where you can store all of the goods that your beloved ship couldn’t contain. To progress to the next stage, you will have to make a certain financial investment and complete a few quests.

Get ready to provide your new home with proper protection, do favors for fellow traders (generous rewards included), search for missing people that got themselves in serious trouble, fight hideous sea monsters and punish thieves among your crew. Sounds like some great adventures are waiting for you, captain!

With each new stage, your city will get bigger: new taverns and shops will unlock, giving you access to more experienced crew members for hire, as well as valuable goods that you can acquire. Eventually, your fame as a city leader will expand so much that some sailors would be honored to work on your vessel absolutely for free!

PS. next week will bring more information about another exciting feature coming to the Pirate City DLC

When we created Tempest, we focused on the most thrilling part of pirate life – sea battles.

As you navigate the dangerous waters of the game you won’t just catch up with merchants, but you will encounter fellow pirates, creepy followers of a mysterious cult and terrible mythical monsters: Kraken, Leviathan and other infamous creatures.

Your ship – the pride and joy of any freebooter – can be customized in many ways. You are free to change almost everything – from the color of your flag and sails to the ship’s hull and figurehead.

Of course, there are plenty of weapons to choose from for every battle, including cannons, mortars, flame throwers and so on. Also there are special tools ready to help you to rig the ship for any purpose. However, you can win the most valuable artifacts only by finishing the multilevel quests called “legends”.

Good hunting.
