A Video Q&A with Pirates of the Burning Sea's Jess Lebow

Updated Wed, Jan 16, 2008 by Ethec

Lead Writer and Content Designer Jess Lebow walks us through some little known facets of Pirates of the Burning Sea, including how Flying Lab uses instancing to help lay out the solo storyline, how player-submitted ship models are incorporated into the game, and some more details about the take-it-or-leave-it supernatural side of the game. The full version of the video (for premium members only) also has us wending through the streets of the pirate capital of Tortuga, plus Jess clues us in on what to expect from the first content update and beyond.
