Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End is a video game published by Buena Vista Games for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Windows PC, PSP, Nintendo DS and the Wii.[1]

Plot[edit]

The game follows the events of Dead Man's Chest and At World's End, and also features additional missions and characters. Also this game has place to place visits to locales such as the Black Pearl, the Flying Dutchman, Tortuga, Davy Jones Locker, Shipwreck Cove, Port Royal and also a prison. As Captain Jack Sparrow the player will have to go to different locations to find the pirate lords and tell them of the meeting at Shipwreck Cove (this involves battling them, their guards, or doing a mission for them). Near the end of the game the player must battle across the Flying Dutchman as both Will and Jack for the Dead Man's Chest. The battle ends with Will killing Davy Jones and remaining behind as Jack returns to the Black Pearl. On the Pearl, the player has to defend the ship against the Endeavour and Lord Cutler Beckett until the Dutchman returns under Will's command and destroys the Endeavour, killing Beckett. After the battle Barbossa has another mutiny against Jack. Jack later runs into Black Bart along with Scarlett and Giselle.[2]

DS Download Play[edit]

For a short while, Disneyland and Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom was giving away "unlimited health, unlimited 'savvy' and unlocked costumes for single player and an unlock of all locations, characters and weapons for multiplayer duel mode" on the Nintendo DS. To obtain the cheats, players had to bring their Nintendo DS system and their Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End video game (the first checkpoint must be reached and saved) to either resort. Anywhere a small silver X in New Orleans Square/Adventureland was found, the player could download the extras and would not need to visit each location to get all of the cheats.[citation needed]
