World of Warcraft
After the Cataclysm, the Southsea Freebooters assaulted the island and are now using it as a base to assault any vessel that comes near the shore. Cap'n Garvey leads the pirates from this island, leaving Alicia Cuthbert in charge of his old flagship, the Maiden's Dagger.
Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War
After the Fall of Theramore, Jaina Proudmoore traveled to Fray Island and used it as a base from which she would unleash her massive tidal wave upon Orgrimmar. She killed all the Southsea Freebooters, marching through their encampments and scouring the buildings clean so that she would have no distractions. Fortunately, Thrall and Kalec found out and were able to dissuade her by saying that if she did she would be no better than either Garrosh or Arthas.
- Interestingly, the back rooms of the house just left of the fighting ring have had the regular Barrens background music replaced by that of the Howling Fjord following the release of the Wrath of the Lich King expansion. The reason for this is uncertain.
- Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): The island has been moved slightly closer to the Barrens.
