As part of the October update, a new legendary island has been added for you and your alliance buddies to conquer. This one's located at the centre of the Caribbean, and it’s of course the iconic Port Royal. The alliance that successfully occupies the city after each cycle of the event will earn itself a praiseworthy title and a helpful buff. As tempting as it might be to rush in for the rewards, remember that taking Port Royal is no easy feat – so beware.

If you'd like to learn more about Port Royal, you can do so by checking out Pirates of the Caribbean: Tides of War’s first-ever Developer Diary. Here, you can expect the answers to several frequently asked questions, mostly regarding tacticians, new content, and alliance support.
