  • 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.

  • New Devlog: Adding Beta Accounts- Or not.

    The official site for Pirates of the Burning Sea has been updated with a new dev log! Don't miss a thing, keep reading!

    How do I get into beta? When can I play? What's taking so long? Where do I send bribes?

    Not a day goes by without an enthusiastic fan looking for more information on when they'll get a chance to participate in beta.

    But it isn't always as easy as a click of the button. In Misha's new Devlog, she gives you a behind the scenes look at the beta program, as well as some information on why some individuals may be experiencing unusually long delays in the acceptance process.

  • Interview with David 'Taelorn' Hunt

    MMORPG.com has posted an interview today that covers ship combat in the upcoming Pirates of the Burning Sea.

    MMORPG.com: Tell us about how a pirate can sail his ship around the Burning Sea? What type of interface did you use for players to sail around the game?

    David 'Taelorn' Hunt: We use a standard WASD setup, although I keep telling everyone that ESDF is superior! One major difference here is that you do not need to hold forward to keep moving - you just hit it long enough to raise your sails to the desired position. Players who prefer to use the mouse can click to adjust their sails and rudder or set a heading on the compass. I prefer to use the keyboard to control my movement and the mouse to control the camera, but I occasionally maneuver with the mouse.
