Install instructions

We recommend using the Itch desktop client to receive automatic updates.

However, if you prefer not to use the client, please make sure you install game updates into an empty folder. Do not overwrite any previous installs, as this could cause the game not to run properly.

This is a standalone game, NOT a mod. DO NOT attempt to install the game on top of Pirates of the Caribbean or any other game, as it will not run properly.

Man I think it got abandoned :(


I just cant wait till it gets updated i will actually buy it if its paied 

Hello, I'm waiting to launch new updates, please continue with build for linux.


Hello, please do an update soon, one that adds the HMS Dauntless and more animations, controls, sizes, and stability and quality. This game has great potential!!!!!!!!!!!! But this demo needs a update that includes what i said please and thank you!!!!

hey, I apologise but it seems i cannot move my mouse to view correctly, it moves to the windows boarders in full screen then stops rotating view. Is there a way that I can fix this? i apologise if its an error on my part or already fixed.

If I remember correctly you can enter one of the menus to get it to re-sync the mouse movement.


Hey is this project abandoned? :'(

Opps, Nathaniel to large to go under deck.

I loved Pirates of The Caribbean and I tryied your mod on it. You made me discover my childhood again and I really hope you will keep on working on it. Thank you so much.

Я играл Корсары 2 POTC в моем детстве, до сих пор я не могу назвать любую другую игру лучше , чем этот, в этой теме, и это просто удивительно, я никогда не думал , что это возможно!

I feel like the entire dev team is going to end up playing sea of thieves and nothing else, lol. I actually hope most of the devs from here give RARE some PVE gameplay tips for a pirate game.


You know what. I have seen plenty of pirate games around, but to be honest, no game that I have found really compares to Pirates of The Caribbean. The game was awesome. The things you could do in the game, the way the game worked, the graphics for it's time, how it all fitted together was just amazing and so far I have found no game like this. Fair enough there are similar games that allow you to do similar things, but POTC really stood out and I hope New Horizons will make it stand out even more, especially with more things to do, graphics, etc. The game looks nice so far, amazing and I can't wait for the final product. Good luck.

Its been awhile since the last update, is the project still going?


It would be a Christmas miracle!


You'll want to swing by the website to find out. Holidays are always really slow for 100% volunteer projects, so I never expect much during the last quarter of the year.


The piratesahoy wbsite?

Correct. They should know a bit more over there. 

Hey, Im actually in love with this game. I have it on CD but my new laptop can't read CD's so I've decided to download it for free. I found this website and the work ur guys doing and im really interested on working on it. I've been working with unity for about 2 years. I'm studiying Software Engineering (2nd year) but if been programming and modeling (a bit less but I know the basics) since 15. If this is a project looking to remastered the Classic of Piracy with no interest in monetizing ill really want to join. Writte me an e-mail (dunno if you can see it in my profile or even send me a private... im new in this website xd) and ill be glad to know your terms (if there are any)

I cannot enter the gate? How am i supposed to continue??

Hi, yesterday i downloaded the demo and when i wanted to play it this morning it crashed and gave me a crash report folder named 2017-10-17_103016

Hi all, I hope you're enjoying the latest build. We'd love to know how well it runs on your PC, so please drop by our forum and tell us about it if you get a chance: http://www.piratesahoy.net/threads/performance-testing.28721/

i can only walk around in the harbour??


Not very interactive is it?


Not very interactive is it?

some time ago I've seen some negative posts by you and now they are deleted. Could you explain again  your concerns briefly? Because I don't remember what exactly in New Horizons you don't like, but you seemed to like either Age of Pirates 1 or PotC. (Do you speak Russian?)

He won't be responding, at least not under that name. He was banned for putting up completely random posts that related entirely to Pirates of the Caribbean and the Disney connection and had nothing to do with New Horizons (the new game build, not the mod) in any meaningful way. After the 10th post that was bashing the game (even though it isn't connected to PotC) it just came down to banning the user to keep the weird posts to a minimum.

I also remember he wrote something about modders not trying to implement something new, but only each making their own scripts, which seemed not quality to him. This makes sense since as I understand you plan to move those scripts to your game. And also if i'm right he considered PotC engine flawed very much?

Will there also be the old music in the game from the original one in your remaster? - I loved it! :)

Only the music that is under no copyright, or a copyright that allows it to be used. We will be adding the ability to mod the game, and that will include adding music scores through those tools, so they can be added by users later, just not as part of the core game.


Hi everyone, you can get a sneak peek at the latest developments in this thread on our forums: http://www.piratesahoy.net/threads/progress-screenshots.28108/#post-557998

We'll post a more detailed article with the main changes when the next build is released.

@Dalek i was lost after he went towards the first man on the dock , geeezus


i've been wanting a good game with pirates, Sea battles  etc... im hoping this will eventually quench my thirst for that


Deleted 3 years ago

it failed to quench my thirst , i couldnt get of the freaking dock  lol 

so, is this game going to be like the original new horizons mod, just updated with new stuff and new engine? or will this one be completely different?

The New Horizons mod is the template we're following, to a certain extent. Some features will be improved or implemented slightly differently to modernise the gameplay where appropriate (such as camera controls, fencing and UI elements).

Una pregunta, esta demo esta en español? 

Is the demo in Spanish?

Hi, the demo is only in English right now. Other languages might come later, once the game has more features.

A quick question from a itch noob - after registering it seems to give me the same options as if I had just downloaded the installer - but I thought i read it should be doing some sort of automatic version update? Is it the follow option on RHS? Collection?

When you run the itch program there is an update button under the game details.

Ah - im even noobier than I thought - there is an itch programme?? I'm just on a website.

Edit: have it working now - thanks

Is there sailing in the demo? if so, how do i sail, Also in the future will there be ghost ships in the game?

you walk to the end of the pier and you can get onto the ship

what button do i press?

(1 edit)

An icon should pop up (i think its an anchor?) and you then press enter i think, or maybe f3. If you don;t see the anchor you have an old version.

Edit - it is F3

(1 edit)

Yes, there is sailing, and you can board your ship to enter sailing mode as described above. Sailing works like PotC, using W and S to raise/lower sails and A/D to turn.

As for ghost ships, there aren't any plans for supernatural elements in the core game. However, we will let modders add their own storylines and quests as additional downloads, which may include content like that.


Will there be a monthly update or whenever you feel like it?


Updates will come as often as we can manage, for now.

Good looking game. Jumping would be nice and not very hard to implement quickly. If you ever need another programmer I'd love to help :)

Jumping, climbing, and other 3d movements are not going to be planned until after the 1.0 version is functional.

Hello did the project got abandoned? :(

Good luck to you guys!

Looks like SeaDogs?

thats kinda the point with it being a "remaster" of New Horizons which is a mod for sea dogs 2
