So grab yer grog, equip thy spyglass, ‘nd let's dive right into the treasure trove that be the new game features comin' yer way!
Avast, sea dogs and sailors! Ye be requestin’ new Guild features, ‘nd there it be off the port bow: Guilds 2.0. be arrivin’ by the end o’ the month! Here what be in store for ye:
🎉 Level up yer Guild, unlockin' a booty o' benefits
💫 Plunder Guild XP when ye or yer trusty guildmates earn XP

🏆 Leaderboards be spotlightin' the top crews, provin' who be the ruler o' the seven seas
💪 Feel the power o' yer Guild with buffs like bonus XP, glitterin' Gold, ‘nd the healin' hand of HP regen (it be the best cure fer scurvy)
🥇 With precious perks shinier than a doubloon in the sun, the bonds betwixt ye and yer mateys will be growin’ stronger with each achievement
Ye can test the new Guild features on the PTR server if ye wishes to sneak-a-peek o’ the fun on the horizon!
Every pirate be needing a place to stash they loot, and we be workin’ on just the thing fit fer landlubbers ‘nd seafarers everywhere. Yer AQ3D crew be hard at work buildin' new housing functionality that be makin’ even Blackbeard himself jealous. Soon ye be able to customize yer hideout, fill it with plunder, and invite yer mates over for grog-fueled fun. Here be some screenshots me seized from the dev team’s screen share, har har har!
What are ye lookin’ at? Aye, this still be in testin’ phase, but this be showin’ that ye can freely
Holy hornswoggles – this be more mind blowing than a cannonball blastin’ through a galleon ship! We be finetuning all the things seen here, so ye can expect the final version o’ housing & items to be more polished than all the precious doubloons in a pirate’s horde. Not sure when Housing be makin’ landfall, but we be focusin’ on it more as soon as Guilds 2.0 releases.
No more needin’ to be passin' posts through Discord, nay me hearties! We be introducin' a brand new in-game Mail system that'll let ye send messages to yer fellow friends. Keep in touch with yer crew, receive notes & secret messages from the dev team, and even get items sent directly to ye if, say, ye accidently disconnect after a battle brawl and ye couldn’t claim yer rightful rewards 📩
Arrr, me lovelies! Lest we forget ‘bout the most important day on the pirate captain calendar: Talk Like a Pirate Day! We be celebratin' this grand occasion in style with a special in-game Live Event on Tuesday, September 19! Mark yer calendars (best with an X to mark the spot), brush up on yer "yo ho hos" and "aye ayes," and get ready to have more fun than a barrel o’ monkeys, because September 19th be a day ye won't want to miss nor forget!
All this be just a taste o' the excitement brewin' in our game's treasure trove. The AQ3D crew be workin' day and night (avast, like me, who be writin’ this here post at 3am) to make sure ye have the best experience in the world…wide web.
