Plot[edit]

The game focuses on the adventures of Katarina de Leon, the daughter of Marcus de Leon, governor of the Pirate Isles, and Mara Rousseau, leader of the Pirates of Skull Cove, as she sails the Five Seas in search of her mother’s grave, and the whereabouts of Captain Hawke, the man who killed her father. In order to find Hawke, Kat must search for the mystical Chartstones, and brave the dangerous and savage islands of the Five Seas infested with Hawke’s men, the Crimson Guard.

Throughout the game Kat will find magical objects and artifacts, confront dangerous creatures and savages, complete quests for island inhabitants in return for help, wage naval battles against the Crimson Guard, collect booty and unearth buried treasure which she can use to upgrade her ship, discover the truth of her mother, Mara, and ultimately avenge her father Marcus’ death by defeating the evil Captain Hawke.
