Pirates of the Burning Sea Interview

Shack News had a chance to sit down with Kevin Maginn from Pirates of the Burning Sea. Keep reading to find out what they were able to learn.

Shack: Do players start out as lowly deckhands, or do we get our own ship right from the start?

Kevin Maginn: We don't like the idea of having to grind through boring content to get to the fun stuff. We make you the captain of a ship from the start, because ship combat in our game is exciting and fun. When you buy the game and log in for the first time, you're expecting to be able to sail the seas and fight pirates. If we [fail to deliver on] that expectation, we're not providing the best [possible] game experience.
