Disney Online announced Friday that it has launched new content for its Pirates of the Caribbean Online game for Mac OS X and Windows. It costs $9.95 per month to play ($4.95 for the first month).

A Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG), Pirates of the Caribbean Online is set in the same fantasy world as you've seen in the movies -- the high seas of the Caribbean, where you search for adventure, fame and fortune while interacting with other players and characters from the movies.

Pirates of the Caribbean is rated E10+ by the ESRB (suitable for everyone 10 and older)

In Pirates of the Caribbean Online, you create your own pirate character, set sail on your own pirate ship, embark on ship and land-based missions using secret maps to locate buried treasure, use voodoo magic, earn extra look playing poker and blackjack, and join a band or guild of other players.

New features now in Pirates of the Caribbean include customization options that let you refine your character with new hairstyles, tattoos, jewelry and clothing. "Unlimited Access" members also get an exclusive skull bandana they can pick up from any tailor before midnight on Sunday, March 2, 2008.

"Emotes" are now supported -- the ability to communicate with other players using actions, such as laughing, clapping, crying, flexing, dancing and more. A new "Looking for Crew" (LFC) feature lets players tell other players they're interested in crewing up for an adventure.

Disney Online also announced plans to release additional content in 2008 like a new "Black Pearl" boss battle, an expansion of ship customization options, extensions of quest story lines and the addition of new enemies and challenges.

System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.4.6 or later, G4 or better, 512MB RAM, 700MB free hard disk space and a broadband connection.
