Pirate101 Questions Answered!

Hello Wizards!

Kingsisle sent everyone an email yesterday giving us more information about Pirate101. I just received it today because I have been way too busy to check my email! We never really knew how much the game would cost or when the closed beta was going to be released. Now we do!

Will my Wizard101 membership work for Pirate101?

No, Wizard101 and Pirate101 are separate memberships. However, there are great ways to save if you play multiple games!

  • If a single account has both Wizard101 and Pirate101 monthly memberships, each game will be at the $6.95 per month pricing that is currently considered "family pricing" in Wizard101. This means if you already have a 1 month membership for Wizard101 at $9.95 per month, you can add Pirate101 for just an additional $3.95 per month!
  • If any family/linked  group of accounts has two or more 1 month memberships regardless of which games, those will be priced at $6.95 per month as well.
  • For our crown players, Crowns are at an account level and can be spent in both Wizard101 and Pirate101.

Where and when can I download Pirate101?

If your account is selected for Beta you will receive instructions with your beta invitation. When Pirate101 goes live later this year, it will be available for everyone to download at no cost.

When is Closed Beta?

A closed Beta for Pirate101 will occur later this year.

Is there an Open Beta?

Currently, there are no plans to hold an open Beta.

When will I know if I can play Closed Beta?

We will make an announcement through the Pirate101 website and Facebook page before we send out Beta invitations. If your account is selected for participation in Beta testing, you will receive an official email from Kingsisle. 

How do I get selected for Closed Beta?

To enter into our Closed Beta drawing, all you have to do is login to  with your existing Wizard101 account. If you're new to Kingsisle Entertainment games, register for a Pirate101 account and you're in the running!

Will Kingsisle keep working on Wizard101? 

Kingsisle remains absolutely committed to adding new systems, stories and worlds to Wizard101. In fact, we have more people working on Wizard101 than we did at launch in 2008. 

Thank you Kingsisle for the great page with our questions and your answers! I can't wait until Beta! I shouldn't be selfish but... x hopes I make it into Beta so I can blog about Pirate101 early x LOL! Anyways...  This arrived in my email and is a great way to get us started for Pirate101. I really can't wait until its released! They said the Closed Beta and the game itself will be released later this year. I think Beta would last a couple of months, so hopefully its not too close to the end of the year instead of later this year lol. If that made sense :) Lets hope its released earlier than expected though! 

See you around the Spiral!
