  • A Look at Pirates of the Burning Sea

    Gamespy has posted their hands on look at the upcoming Pirates of the Burning Sea. Keep reading to see what they think.

    There was something rather appropriate about showing up at Flying Lab's offices in Seattle looking like a drowned rat. The freezing cold rain was pouring down and the wind was howling under a gray end-of-the-world type sky when I rang the bell for my appointment to go hands-on with the developer's watery new MMO, Pirates of the Burning Sea. The good news was that I would be quite warm the rest of the day, as I'd be spending it under the warm 18th century Caribbean sun.

  • Interview and New Screenshots

    Multiplayer Online Games Directory (MOGD) has updated their site with an interview with Pirates of the Burning Sea's Content Director Jess Lebow. This interview also features new screenshots.

    Staci: What is ship-to-ship combat like? Do the ships move slowly for realism, or is that abandoned in favor of a quicker pace? What factors go into being successful in a battle?

    Jess: Ship combat requires a lot of tactical calculating. Ship speed, wind direction, and your ship's stats all factor into how you approach a battle. The whole thing is a thunderous affair. Pound for pound, there is more firepower in this game than any other I've played. Imagine 50 9-pound cannons all going off at one time-and that's just your first volley.

  • Interview and New Screenshots

    WarCry.com has posted an interview with Priates of the Burning Sea's Producer John Scott Tynes. They also posted two new screenshots!

    WarCry: At PAX you announced avatar combat would officially be in the game when it launches this summer. Why did you choose to bring it in and delay launch to accommodate it?

    John Scott Tynes: It’s just such a big expectation for the whole pirate/swashbuckling genre that we decided we had to deliver on it – particularly for boarding combat, where you really want to get in there and swing your sword around instead of watching some numbers float by.
