  • Jess Lebow, Lead Writer and Content Designer for Pirates of the Burning Sea answers some questions

    Coldfront has posted an interview with Jess Lebow. Find out what they were able to learn about the upcoming Pirates of the Burning Sea.

    CF: What do you like best about working on Pirates of the Burning Sea?

    Jess: The team, the whole team. It's not just that there's a lot of talent here. There is, but what truly makes this an exceptional group is their willingness to collaborate. We walk into a meeting, each of us with our own ideas, and we start talking, and pretty soon those individual thoughts have morphed into one giant new idea that is far better than each of the individual parts. No one owns that idea, we just all contributed to its creation. It's this willingness to listen to others and include different ideas in the mix that assures me PotBS is going to be a success.

  • Misha Updates Us On Beta!

    Another update on the official site for Pirates of the Burning Sea brings us an update on beta in Misha's Developer Blog.

    I've managed to duck Aether since May but he finally caught up with me... I can't even begin to list all the changes to the Beta since May. We've added tons more people, established a regular schedule for the sessions and then changed that schedule, and I've got new GMs helping me to the point I no longer have to work the weekends to run the Beta. This makes for a much less cranky Misha!

    Currently, our schedule is very focused on North/South American availability. If you're a Beta tester not in my hemisphere, chances are you can only play once per week. By far, the most whining I hear from Beta testers is that they don't get to play, er, test often enough. ;-)

    Don't miss out...Keep reading to learn what else has changed in beta! Are you going to don your pirate gear and jump on into Pirates of the Burning Sea? Let us know about it in the Ten Ton Hammer Forums today!

  • Pirates of the Burning Sea hits a milestone...

    Yarrr! Them lubbers at Flying Lab Software be signallin' that their MMO, Pirates of the Burning Sea, has just set anchor in th' port of harbor they be callin' "Milestone 22". Plenty of missions await ye beta players, not to mention enough new port content to ballast yer bilges. But hold on to yer fancy britches... what's all this about a duel?

    Content creation is getting an extra-special twist in this milestone. When creating content for levels 15-30 a while back, each Mission Designer was given the responsibility for creating all the content for a single port in the game. This time around, Content Lead Jess Lebow (formerly the Guild Wars World Designer) has assigned every Mission Designer a nemesis – another member of the department – and asked each opposing pair of Mission Designers to create dramatic tension by developing competing storylines for the level 31-50 content. Every story will have two distinct sides as Flying Lab pits Mission Designer against Mission Designer as dueling partners in creating intriguing storylines for high-level players.

    Some additional highlights from Milestone 22 include the following: 

    • Extensive work on Avatar Combat styles for swords and rapiers

    • Extensive high-end, faction-based content for players level 30 to 50+
    • The addition of 200+ new missions
    • The addition of new environments, like black markets, jails and taverns as well as numerous new ports, villages, and frontier towns for British, French, Spanish and Pirate factions

    Ye can see more about "Milestone 22" in th' official press release.

    And if ya aren't in the Burning Sea beta, don't get yer neckerchief in a knot. Set sail for the Ten Ton Hammer forums- where ye can discuss the game 'til yer heart's content.

  • Grumpy Old Gamer Continues His Report On His Trip To Flying Labs

    Game Club Central has updated their site with the second report from Grumpy Old Gamer's trip to Flying Labs to see the upcoming Pirates of the Burning Sea. Keep reading to see what he has to say.

    When one thinks of Pirate games there are certainly a few that have set up our expectations of a Pirate game, mainly Sid Meirer’s PIRATES! and Pirates of the Caribbean. Both quality games at their time, but you can take them both as genre primers when it comes to the big dog – Pirates Of The Burning Sea (POTBS). In a word, this ain’t your daddy’s Pirates. Before I get into the depth of the game I need to introduce three company members that graciously answered all of my questions about the game and took me through a wonderful afternoon at their company:
