Every now and then something comes across our desks at Massively OP that makes us say “Huh” and then say louder throughout the office, “Did any of you know that was a thing?” This is usually followed by a shrug and a call from Chris to speak out because he’s sleeping off a gaming scandal in his hammock in the cabin.
Here’s what made us say “huh” this week: Pirate101 has a mobile spin-off game called Pirate101: Plunder Hunt. Huh. This isn’t actually that old as it only came onto the market in the last few weeks of October. It is not a mobile port of Pirate101 but rather a new title with its own development team and a more action-adventure edge. Players who complete the mobile game sufficiently will receive a code for a free Batacuda mount Pirate101if that interests you.
