Pirate101 Class Housing and Yum Vendor to Go Live Tomorrow?


Today, I've got some touching news to report - and it also means some new content for the game. Tomorrow, a new yum vendor is going live. But not just any old vendor. This is a very special salesman, voice and all.

Not-So-Greedy KingsIsle

KingsIsle has been called a lot of things - CrownsIsle, greedy, etc. They've been accused of... being a company. And ridiculed for it. But to those who think that that is right, okay, or actually accomplished anything, take a look at this.

KingsIsle recently gave a cancer patient, who uses Pirate101 is ways you might never have imagined, the trip of a lifetime to KingsIsle. He got to go behind the scenes with developers and learn about his favorite game. But that wasn't all. They created for Ryan his own poster and Yum Vendor that goes live in the game tomorrow. Ryan actually does all of the voicing. 

Ryan's Update to Bring More Surprises?

Today, new launchers were added to the Pirate101 screen. It looks to be class housing! You can also see the color-corrected background above.


It definitely looks like class-specific housing. But will it come out with Ryan's update? Or to the Test Realm with his update? Or with his update at all? It looks to me like it's going to be pretty impressive... and hopefully not entirely Skull Island themed like the rest of the houses... we'll see. One thing is for sure... KingsIsle has got to stop teasing us with launchers! Ha!

Then there's the question - will it come directly to live or to the Test Realm? Pirate101's TR page is current down, so it may be on its way!

What do you think is coming? Thanks for reading and see you in the Spiral!
