Shuttered Pirates of the Caribbean MMO Lives on in Fan-Made 'The Legend of the Pirates Online'

Pirates of the Caribbean Online shut down for good back in 2013, but thanks to a passionate team of fans, the game now lives on in the form of The Legend of Pirates Online.

This recreation of Disney’s now defunct massively multiplayer online game is nearly a hundred percent faithful to the old one, which originally launched in 2007. People who grew up on Disney Channel during the era of The Sweet Life of Zack & Cody might remember Disney pushing this game like crazy during commercial breaks.

This name generator…

Pirates of the Caribbean Online was essentially like World of Warcraft, but for younger audiences and with a popular Disney IP attached. It’s honestly a pretty competent free MMO, and despite looking like a PS2 reject, the gameplay holds up pretty well.

That’s right, dog! How does it feel to be on the other side of the prison cell?

Like all things Disney and video games related, it’s life was short lived (RIP Disney Infinity) but it’s really cool that people can now go back and indulge in some mid-2000s Disney nostalgia. Remember when there was a High School Musical daytime parade at Disney-MGM Studios?

The game doesn’t run perfectly. It’s technically in beta at the moment, and there’s a much smaller team working to keep this thing up and running compared to when the old game was around. I had a little trouble staying connected at first, as the game would occasionally crash during ship battles, but it’s definitely worth downloading and giving a try. The game is constantly being worked on, so updates are on the way.

Here is a link to the game’s website if you’re interested in giving it a try. It’s available for Windows and Mac.

One thing the article failed to mention was the fact that this is a totally free and subscriptionless fan-made remake.
