Pirate101: New Game from the makers of Wizard101
Just saw this announced on the Wizard101 Central board:

KingsIsle Entertainment Unveils Pirate101

And here is the website:

Be sure to check out the video! And you can sign up for an invitation to the closed beta.

Hmm, flying pirate ships? Skull Island? Now where have we seen those before, mateys? pirate:

This looks and sounds pretty good!

Great find, Aliceblue, and good to see you!

I've been so busy lately, I haven't had a chance to be online much with fun stuff.

Hi Tink and Aengus :)

I doubt I'll be playing this one myself, as I can barely manage one game and I have yet to run out of things to do in Wizard101. (Can't believe I've been playing it longer than VMK now..... :()

For any of you folks who still play Wiz, it looks like the two games may be interconnected in terms of accounts, crowns and memberships.

I still play wizards at least a few times a week but I signed up for this one too. DS likes the way the combat looks like it is going to be on this one.

Are you playing Pirate 101?
Are you playing Pirate 101? Looks pretty good, I found little information on this game. - mmohunter

I believe it is in beta or soon will be. As far as I know, it hasn't gone live yet.

I'm in for the beta and I'm still playing Wizard101. Takes some time to get used to the gameplay, but I'm interested in seeing how it will all play out.

aengus 08-20-2012 09:11 PM

thats great, the game looks very interesting. I read a review somewhere that really praised it

bevgray 08-29-2012 01:53 PM

I was invited in for beta and, so far, I am really enjoying this game. Play style is a bit different than Wizard 101 but the well-done graphics, enjoyable Easter eggs, are all present and accounted for. The change in play style keeps it from being just a pirate version of Wizards. Can't discuss much more than these general observations due to the Beta agreement as well as not knowing what will make it past the beta testing into the live version. For those who enjoy Wizards (as well as my old VMK comrades), I think it will be well worth your time to at least take a peek when the time comes.

Pirate101 Sneak Peak Event!
Just saw this announcement on their website:


Come play Pirate101 with us!

Thatís right! Weíre putting Beta on hold and inviting everyone in to Pirate101 for a few hours (2:00pm to 8:00 pm US Central) on Thursday, October 4th, 2012! Itís a special public sneak peek of Pirate101.


1. Login to now and download the game installer early -- note that you will not be able to update and launch the game until 2:00 pm US Central on October 4th 2012.
2. Login between 2:00 and 8:00 pm US Central Time on October 4th and play as much as you want for free!
3. At 8:00 pm US Central, we will take our servers offline and return the game to a state where only Closed Beta players have access.
4. Uninstall Pirate101 until our official launch date on October 15th.

As a reminder, all characters will be deleted before the game launches.
This is not considered Closed Beta Access. And therefore no Beta rewards will be given to those who only play the game during the Sneak Peek event.
Not sure I want to download the preview game, but I thought those of you who didn't get into the beta might be interested. :)

I caught this earlier this evening on facebook and went in and played for about an hour.

I have to say it looked pretty interesting

Definitely will give this a chance when its open

Ill be playing Pirate 101, already had bought the bundle when it was released and was included to play Beta. Our entire family plays Wizard 101 (3 generations to be exact) My husband and myself and our son who just turned 7 and my father. Its our family time. We skype and go in and do different quests together :thumbsup2 What i like about Pirates is that the game play is different than wizards, but still has the amazing graphics and great storylines :goodvibes We are all looking foward to playing it on Monday (when those that bought the bundle/card) goes live, and then it starts for everyone on the 18th of October :hyper:

bevgray 10-08-2012 02:48 PM

Hi Alice, hi Aengus. I've played in Beta for several months now. Really recommend it to my old VMK chums. Look forward to seeing what you think, Tazgirl, as to whether it's fun for your family the way Wizard 101 is.

aengus 10-10-2012 07:35 AM

have any of you beta players found a particular class to be an easier start than the others?
