We're heading into the second month of Season Seven with foxes in the Emporium and fixes far and wide. Yes, new pets form part of our fresh Pirate Emporium offerings, while elements of Captaincy and beyond get serviced with improvements and adjustments. If you missed last month’s Seasonal debut, let the full trailer fill you in!

There's still time to brush up on last month’s momentous release notes too, but if you’re already acquainted, let’s push ahead with what’s new right now...

Pirate Emporium

Those foxes you spotted in the Season Seven artwork have arrived! And as these new pets proliferate across the seas, the Emporium also offers a Mandrake collection comprising a ship set, costume, weapon bundle and speaking trumpet, plus emotes for Admirals and axe enthusiasts...

Known Issues

The team are working on a resolution and intend to return this experience in a future update.

Saved Ship Customisations Not Persisting

  • Captains may find that saved customisations such as ship liveries and decorations do not always persist between sessions.

Reduced Server Performance

Ranged and Melee Weapon Hit Detection

  • In areas of intense action, players may find themselves firing shots or landing strikes that do not cause damage to their targets. While small improvements continue to be delivered during our regular updates, we are continuing to investigate and identify further improvements to the player combat experience.
