As a pirate, you’ll have access to do pirate-y things like dig for rare treasure, and own a parrot. You can name your parrot, feed it, and then promptly send it off to attack some poor unsuspecting sim. There are treasure maps that you’ll come across, which can lead you to a pile of slime-covered gold, or a tentacle monster. In our demo, we were lucky enough to avoid the monster for the most part, but for the sake of our entertainment, our monarch jumped into the monster pit for a good thrashing. Sword fighting is also a key feature to the game, and it seems like that is what the nobles tend to do in their spare time. As always you’ll have access to an extensive wardrobe, and we were told that a patch will come out before the expansion ships, to give everyone the ability to add make-up to their sim.
