The Life of a Pirate
PvP is definitely more “action packed” compared to the PvE gameplay in Kartuga. Currently, there are two PvP game modes – both of which will really push players’ skills to the limit and challenge them to work together to achieve different objectives, depending on the game mode.
Domination or Destruction?
Domination game mode is a PvP game mode that is essentially like team deathmatch. Two teams, each made up of four players, will head out on various maps to get down and dirty with opposing players. Teams earn points by defeating other players and there are two ticket counters, one for each team, that keep track of the current score. The first team to reach 2500 points wins the round.
Destruction was our person favorite because not only did we get to take on other players in action-packed battles, we also had to plant a bomb that went “boom”. Upon starting a round of destruction, a bomb will appear in the middle of the map. Players have to pick up the bomb and carry it to any one of the enemy “zones” (labeled with a large circle) and then plant the bomb. Once planted, they will have to protect it to prevent their enemies from disarming and resetting the bomb in the middle of the map.
The Vast and Colorful World
Ships… Ships Galore!
In addition to featuring a wide variety of ships, there are three different “classes” available in Kartuga: the Engineer, the Protector and the Destroyer. Each class features different strengths and weaknesses that players will have to master if they want to be useful in combat.
Sailing into the Future
At the moment, Kartuga is in the Closed Beta testing phase and hopefully in the near future either more people will be invited to join or it will even go in to the Open Beta, letting everyone join in the adventure.
