    Thumbs up Pirates of the Burning Sea!



    "Pirates of the Burning Sea" is coming in the next few months. It's a game I think many would be interested in at least trying.

    In a nutshell, this is a MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role-playing Game) developed by Flying Lab Software for the past 5 yrs. The game itself is set in the year 1720 in the Caribbean.

    You can choose to be one of several nations (Britain, Holland, France, Spain) and also choose to be a Privateer, Merchant, Naval Officer (serving your chosen nation) or be a Pirate.

    The world itself is both PvE and PvP and a completely controlled and influenced player economy. Also, ports and areas can change allegiances to nations as well. So Santiago may not always be Spanish but become English or a Pirate port. Combat is both naval combat and sword fighting.

    I am posting some links for some of you to check it out. There are quite a few of them so make sure you look through them all if this game spikes any interest.

    Personally, I'm going to play it. I've always loved this age of history and to me it has the potential to be the kind of game I've been looking for; a mixing of Age of Empires and Role Playing. Not to mention I loved "Seven Cities of Gold" and "Age of Sail" as well as "Pirates!".

    It can only be complete if you can contract scurvy or syphilis during the game.

    Can you unravel Meaty's secret message??

    If there's a way to move this to the "upcoming games" section, I think that would be cool.

    But, yes, if done right this game might just be really sweet.

    The game was developed by Flying Labs Software, only recently did they get brought in by Sony so Sony could provide the infrastructure for the servers and marketing.
