Update 1.5 for Cloud Pirates is now live! Burning Tides adds a new map, new game mode, first mates, and more ... but are there actually any tides? I mean, these ships fly, and "tides" are usually a water thing ...

Anyway, the Cursed Treasure Canyon is the game's new map, a kind of "ships' graveyard" where some captains claim "that the captain of a downed ship cursed both the treasures she was carrying and the attackers." We're sure it's nothing but superstition ... right?

The new game mode is called Moving Control Point Capture, featured only in 7x7 brotherhood battles. It's just what it sounds like: standard point-control with the points occasionally moving. You can also recruit a first mate to provide you with witty banter as you loot and plunder.

The update also includes some economic tweaks, reducing the price of Tier 4 ships to a mere 1 million gold apiece, while also reducing repair costs. There are plenty of cosmetic changes, like animated portraits and a new Collector's Treasure Map. Learn more about Burning Tides on the Cloud Pirates site.
