OYCITY, a game developer and publisher based in Korea, and Disney announced today the launch of its mobile game, Pirates of the Caribbean: Tides of War. The new mobile strategy game is inspired by the popular Disney blockbuster series, “Pirates of the Caribbean,” and features characters, ships and storylines based on the hit movies. The game is available for free download with in-app purchases on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
In the game, players become pirates in the world of “Pirates of the Caribbean” and will enjoy a full sea fight experience on their mobile devices. As they plan various strategies through building and ship construction and troops training, players can form an alliance to battle against each other or defeat common monsters that dwell in the sea! Players will also encounter familiar characters from “Pirates of the Caribbean,” including Captain Jack Sparrow, Captain Barbossa and Will Turner.
“‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ is one of the most popular movie franchises in history and ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Tides of War’ will immerse fans directly into the action like never before,” said Hanseo Jo, COO, JOYCITY. “With the fifth installment of the franchise, Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ coming out soon, this new game will allow players to engage further with the world of Captain Jack Sparrow and the other iconic characters in new ways.”
With the release of “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” back in 2003, came the dawn of one of the most successful series of films in the history of the Disney Studios. The film series was to become a history-making phenomenon, with the first film followed by “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” (2006), “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” (2007) and “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” (2011). Collectively, these four films have brought in over $3.7 billion of worldwide box-office. On May 26, audiences will be treated to the newest film in the franchise, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” a rollicking tale of the high seas infused with the elements of fantasy, humor and action that have resulted in an international phenomenon for the past 13 years.
