Country Ball comics were all the rage back in the day, so it’s interesting to see it realised in a videogame setting through Bang-On Balls. The game has just gotten its expansion, one that is focused on pirates!
EVERY DESTINATION IS AN ADVENTURE
It’s the 17th century and the high seas are littered with the balls of pirates, privateers, merchants, and the naval armadas of the European powers. But these contested waters are more than just a few lush islands with great real estate. Deep sea creatures, voodoo curses, skeleton armies, Spanish fortresses, buccaneer hideouts and… a pirate shopping center?… are just the tip of the tropical iceberg. The Pirate Expansion adds the biggest map in the game to date and it’s simply jam-packed with things to do and uncover!
SET YOUR OWN COURSE
In Bang-On Balls: Chronicles, you are your own compass so pick a spot on the horizon and set sail. Start the hunt for a collect-a-thon of pirate-themed items that let you customize your look, your boat, and your fighting style. Battle your way through islands packed with enemies and multiple boss fights guarding treasures, secrets, and unlockables. Hunt down and sink marauding ships roaming the waves. Plunder and demolish strongholds, hideouts, and treacherous caves. Seek out and save mermaids (merballs?). Or tattoo your balls to strike fear or admiration into the hearts of those who cross paths with you.
GATHER A CREW
The new map as with the whole game supports both single-player and online co-op for up to four players. Some secrets and boss fights are designed to be triggered and played in co-op so try to grab a crew and let the looting begin!
Bang-On Balls: Chronicles is an open-world, 3D, destructible sandbox platformer built around the loop of exploration, uncovering secrets, collecting items, and tight bouncy battles. The expansion is completely free for all existing players on Steam.
