PotBS Revised Guide from Prima Games

Posted Tue, Jun 17, 2008 by Morvelaira

Current to build 1.4

MMO's are usually not the easiest games to make guides for, because let's face it - they're general out of date within three months if not sooner. It's nice to see Prima has taken the time to update their guide at least. It is current to build 1.4, is only available in online format, and comes with a code for a cute, in-game shoulder lizard.

New York, NY (June 16, 2008) —Prima Games, an imprint of Random House Inc., and Flying Lab Software have announced the release of Pirates of the Burning Sea Revised Edition: Prima Official eGuide (PotBS), the highly anticipated, revised companion to the game's 1.4 patch. This revised and expanded title from Prima Games is available in digital eGuide format only, including a new exclusive code for an in-game shoulder lizard. The guide is now available online for a suggested retail price of $19.99 or may be downloaded at www.primagames.com.

"We are very excited to be able to offer a newly updated and revised guide digitally for this well-loved MMORPG," says Debra Kempker, president of Prima Games. "Continuing in a new tradition of in-game items, we were able to once again offer exclusive content—something we hope to keep doing in the future."

In the re-creation of the guide, Prima continued to use its previous author team along with the Syndicate, the world's largest online gaming guild. The Syndicate team spent hundreds of hours playing the game and testing strategies alongside the game dev team in the first installment of the guide. For the revised edition, the team was kept in the game, playing along side other players, team members, and staff to expand on past strategies and cultivate new, long-term tactics.

"Our friends at Prima have created a must-have guide for every Pirates of the Burning Sea fan," said Troy Hewitt, Director, Community Relations at Flying Lab Software. "Filled with the latest in piratical play-tips, this official guide is a tremendous resource for even the most sea-worthy captain of the Burning Sea! Let's not forget that exclusive shoulder lizard—Yar!"

The guide contains an updated breakdown of every ship (new and past) and its stats, as well as an in-depth career guide to help players at every level on both land and sea. The guide also takes an exhaustive look at the newest class: Buccaneer. There are fully updated tables of every new skill as well.
