[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Online games developer and publisher, NGames, has released a useful guide to the Adventures awaiting players in the brand new Grand Line expansion to browser-based One Piece MMO, Pockie Pirates.

The new Grand Line map faithfully recaptures the famous Grand Line ocean trail from the hit One Piece anime series, which Luffy and co sail for adventure. The biggest expansion to hit Pockie Pirates to date, adventures on the new Grand Line map run parallel to the main Pockie Pirates game, allowing players to return to land and take part in instances and quests while their ships sail the long distances between towns.

The world map is split into four different colors – green, blue, purple and red. Each colour corresponds to a difficulty level for the Adventures (green for the easiest and red for the hardest).

Undertaking a more difficult Adventure on the Grand Line will yield greater rewards, with Blue (easy) Adventures providing double the experience of Green (newbie) ones. Each Adventure also offers other rewards, which can be converted into Crystals at the Crystal Redeem Shop.

With more difficult Adventures providing the greatest rewards, the trick is to be able to advance through the easiest levels as quickly as possible.

During an Adventure, commanding pirates must select where each character will be positioned during battle. Every Pockie Pirates character has his/her own preferred position on the ship, whether it's manning the turrets or taking control of the oars, so selecting the right configuration will greatly aid a player’s cause.

The Grand Line adventures are presented using a grid structure, where each square triggers a uniquely exciting event. Players have 40 mobility points to spend when adventuring and are advised to use as many as possible in order to come away with the maximum possible haul of treasure. Adventures culminate in a challenging boss encounter, with vast rewards on offer for captains able to defeat them.

Pirates need to be on their toes and prepared for anything on the Grand Line map - multiple random events can trigger on every square of the grid, including battles for items, double rewards, teleportation, treasure chests, and specially designed minigames.
