Roguelike card game Pirates Outlaws hitting iOS and Android Wednesday, March 6

Pirates Outlaws – a new card game where players set sail to explore perilous islands through stylish turn-based battles and procedurally-generated maps – is launching Wednesday, March 6 on the App Store and Google Play

In Pirates Outlaws, players take on the role of a pirate captain in search of fortune and glory. The goal? To recruit pirates – and then navigate isle to isle seeking treasure, new cards … and ever-valuable relics, of course! But to get to the loot, players must first survive a series of turn-based skirmishes that include more traditional sword fights and challenging gun battles. Only those who amass a huge pile of gold – and gain a reputation among their peers – can become the greatest pirate of them all!

To get started, you must first choose a character. Fortunately, there are 6 different pirates to choose from – each with a special ability and a pre-made deck containing 10 cards:
  • Gunner
  • Sword Master
  • Explorer
  • Cursed Captain
  • Alchemist
  • Admiral

Next, it’s time to hit “Navigate” and select from 3 initial Chapters (with more coming soon). Once on the map screen, there are 3 difficulty levels to choose from – with “boss battles” in between. Each one of the levels contains the Tavern, Market, Event and Battle isles. You can play your way by choosing the desired destination on the map.

To navigate, you need to spend Action Points (AP). If you run out, the expedition ends. At the same time, you can also complete the game by defeating the 3 bosses – and then unlock new chapters and other endgame content with Gold and Reputation.


  • Choose from 6 characters featuring unique abilities and pre-made decks.
  • Collect more than 250 cards, 50 outlaws, and 80 relics – while facing 20 challenging bosses along the way.
  • Explore 3 chapters at launch through an exciting turn-based, card combat system.
  • Manage health and ship AP (Action Points) to survive.
  • Enjoy a procedurally-generated map with random placement of Battles, Events, Market, and Tavern.
  • Experience the life of a pirate with a minimalist 2D art style and an original soundtrack.

Pirates Outlaws will be available Wednesday, March 6 on the App Store and Google Play for $0.99. The game also contains in-app purchases.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
