Cloud Pirates Early Access Kicks Off with a Gold Rush

Airships, piracy, and gold. It’s a combination as natural as peanut butter and jelly, and the Cloud Pirates early access launch is banking on just that as the title begins its new phase of development with a brand new in-game event.

The Gold Rush event is part of an update to Cloud Pirates, which introduces a new game mode involving two teams of seven players; one team is responsible for protecting and escorting a caravan, while the other team must take the convoy out and steal its loot. The event promises to be a rewarding one, with “untold riches” offered to players who participate.

Cloud Pirates early access is now available, and a video showing off the Gold Rush game mode can be seen below.

Our Thoughts

There’s just something alluring about the free-wheeling fun of airship pirates, and this new game mode in Cloud Pirates really seems to emphasize that. Discounting the questionable pirate brogue used in the trailer, Gold Rush looks like a good time and we’re excited that Cloud Pirates has entered this new phase of development.
