Free-to-play action MMO Cloud Pirates has entered full release, and with it the game received a massive update.

Featured above, you can view the launch trailer for the game – it’s filled with high-flying aerial piracy and privateering. The game features over 45 ship types, four game modes, and more.

The new update, titled simply “Stronghold,” brings with it the titular strongholds, where players can actually build their own fortress. The new stronghold siege mode will naturally pit other players against your own refuge, with the reward of golden cannons should you be successful.

There’s also three player party groups included in the new update, a league system, leaderboards, consumables, and preset combat builds.
