Tales of Pirates provides a preview of Winter Island.

IGG is ready to provide a preview of its upcoming Winter Island, version 2.0 for Tales of Pirates. "New stories, maps, mobs, quests" await the travelers in addition to the new PvP system. Adding to the backstory, today's press release discusses the origins of Winter Island:

After the tsunami, adventurers arrived in the region of the sea where the fireball had dropped, and found a giant whirlpool swirling in the middle of the sea, out of which came a chilling air and a continuous roaring.

On the island they found a comatose and injured man, Njorth Ville, who had disappeared 10,000 years ago. Njorth Ville went to the world of Prajna to find something important, but he had to stay there when the situation turned bad. When he was finally able to return, he was shocked by what he saw.

Njorth Ville and Goddess Cara used to live on Winter Island for a brief period of happiness. Goddess Cara was angry at Njorth Villes for leaving and smashed the beautiful Winter Island into several small islands which were endlessly covered by snow.

Njorth Villes stood on a mountain on the central island and looked at the world. Sadness filled his eyes. Most island citizens have moved away and few of them stay in this remote wasteland with Njorth Ville. Until, hero Lance and his friends arrived at the whirlpool...”
