Pirates of the Caribbean Online will soon let players express themselves a whole better as part of the Avatar Customization update coming later this month. Finally! I really enjoy this game. It's easy to get into, fun to play, and hearkens back to my youth riding through the PotC ride at Disneyland. But character customization options are very limited. Thankfully, the devs have headed off the mutiny with what looks like the first of many upgrades.
Included in this update will be PotCO's first round of emotes: dance, laugh, clap, and celebrate. Pirates will soon be able to get inked up at the tattoo parlor, purchase some sweet new bling at the jewelry store, and grab some slick new threads at the tailor shoppe. Additionally, new coats inspired by the Pirate Lords of the Brethren Court will be added (see above picture).
To help ease the frustration of remembering which NPC to visit in order to complete a Quest, enhancements have been made to the tracking system. Which is good for an old fart like me who would forget my head if it wasn't attached. When you're in the "return to townsperson" stage of the Quest a ray of light will shine down from the heavens on to the NPC you need to find (they had this, but it didn't work so well). Plus, a yellow arrow at the player's feet will help guide the way.
All in all, a hearty batch of goodies to warm the pirate blood! To see the new emotes, the shops, and the new threads, check out the Current News page on the PotCO website.
