Pirates of the Caribbean: Tides of War is receiving a special Lunar New Year update. Set in the popular “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise from Disney, Tides of War is a mobile strategy game (with some micro-management elements) that gained huge popularity in North America, Europe and Asia since its original launch in May 2017.
About Pirates of the Caribbean: Tides of War
For those of you who are not familiar with the game, you are looking at a simplified city (port) management game with an auto-battle system. Your main goal is to expand, upgrade and acquire new resources. Build your fleet from the ground up, recruit new crew, hire specialists and battle your way to victory. There is an extensive tutorial for any new player that will guide you through (almost) everything, how the game works and what you have to do in the beginning. Pirates can embark on special missions, raid other islands for loot or play the story driven campaign. The port under your control is your sanctuary. You can upgrade buildings, train skills and carefully plan your moves.
The adventure never really ends and for how long will you play it’s entirely up to you. At later levels, things are getting harder for F2P players as resources you gather drop significantly and the game does require your attention at least once a day if you are expecting some decent progress. Guilds (fleets) are also a thing here, so make sure you find and join one as soon as you can (or create your own). This will help you progress faster and defend the port when not online. For what it is, Pirates of the Caribbean: Tides of War seems to be an OK daily game if you’re a fan of the franchise.
