under the jolly roger pirate city

It’s been a year since the HeroCraft team went up against Sea of Thieves with their release of Under the Jolly Roger. Now though it’s time to build out the base game with some Pirate City DLC. 

Available to purchase, download and add into your Under the Jolly Roger base game today is the Pirate City DLC. It’s present on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4 and Nintendo Switch, as HeroCraft look to expand the original game with new features, ideas and quests. 

Priced at £6.69 from the Xbox Store, Pirate City adds the ability to build and develop your very own settlement within Under the Jolly Roger, as you look to give a home to your pirate crew, feeding them with proper defenses, allowing the chance to trade with others and head out on a search for missing folk. 

Oh, and because this is Pirate City, punishing the thieves among your crew will now be an everyday occurence. 

There’s more though and whilst our original review of Under the Jolly Roger spoke positively of the sea combat sections and amount of depth found, the mind-numbingly excruciating tutorials and the clunky hand-to-hand combat certainly pulled it down a peg (leg) or two. Pirate City will look to reestablish things with new quests which will allow you to become the richest pirate of all time, and new land battle arenas so that you can test that clunky combat out for yourself. 

Features include:

  • Develop your own settlement – As a savvy manager, you can transform your village into a thriving city. Become the richest and most famous pirate of all the time!
  • Find a mysterious ship – Legend tells of a sinister ship, roving the ocean for countless decades. Capture it, and you’ll have a choice of 4 extra decorative figureheads: wolf, tiger, bear, and lion. Do you have the courage to uncover its dark secrets?
  • Buy a share in any shop – Improve your financial situation so you can invest even more funds in your city. Let your city stand out from others!
  • Become a champion in the battle arena – We’re introducing a land battle arena! Now the only one you can rely on during the fight will be yourself. Will you be able to survive the battle against pirates and resurrected skeletons?

Should you have gone fighting dangerous sea creatures and attempted to capture ships the first time around, we think that the Pirate City DLC for Under the Jolly Roger may well be worth a bit of consideration. If you don’t have the base game, this probably isn’t going to make a sale, but it could well be one for the fans.
