Pirates of the Caribbean: Tides of War will ride the hype ship of the new movie's release

Pirates of the Caribbean is one of the most successful franchises Disney has ever had. Originally just a ride in Disneyland, it later evolved into a multimedia franchise that's racking up millions of revenue every year. The newest addition to the main series of movies is hitting theaters on May 26, and there will be a mobile game to accompany it.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Tides of War was just announced by its developers, Joycity, and pre-registrations for both the Android and iOS versions are now open, and you can find them in the source link below. The game will reportedly be a strategy MMO, featuring characters, ships and storylines based on the famous franchise. Familiar faces, such as Jack Sparrow, Captain Barbosa and Will Turner are confirmed to make an appearance in the game.

According to the official press release, you will play as a pirate and “will experience different playstyles with various strategies through building and ship construction and troops training.” For some reason, when we read this we though that this is where the microtransactions will come in, with the vastly popular Time Gating model. This remains to be seen, though.

We're not sure if a mobile game can really be on par with the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, when it comes to excitement, but it could very well prove to be a market success if it manages to harness the hype around the new movie release.

Pirates of the Caribbean, eh? I think Disney ripped the 'pirates' and 'grog' idea off of Lucas Arts' Monkey Island series of point & click adventure games... I used to play games at my office on an IBM AT with an... Wait for it, gents... With an... 8Mhz CPU (I'm serious) with a 20MB Hard drive (Still serious) and 6 MBs or RAM (VERY serious)... My company bought like... A dozen or so pieces and each 'rig' costed my company a whooping $7,000 with shipping and installation and it ran on command base DOS... I remember when I first used that computer... My hands were literally shaking because I knew that if I mess this thing up, I'll get fired...! Ah! Those were the days, gents... Now you can shove a 'computer' with a 2.0+ Ghz Deca Core CPU with 8 Gigs of RAM and 256GB+ of storage in your pocket... Drifting away in thought, like always... Sorry for that... G'Day!

I am not surprised at the IBM AT specs (had one myself), did you have an amber or green monitor? There was a nice 'virus' going around at the Dutch uni I was attending for those hercules videocards, it could literally destroy your monitor.
