Pirates of the Burning Sea Features

  • Holding out for a hero!

    Everyone wants to be a hero, especially those individuals who play MMOGs during their free time. The developers behind Pirates of the Burning Sea were acutely aware of that fact and they gave the job of turning players into heroes to one man, Gavin Irby. As the sole mission designer for the RP story-arc, Gavin has created over 70 story-driven missions for players to complete, and we had an opportunity to chat with him at the 2007 Comic-Con. Enjoy the interview!

  • Devs pause lighting M80s long enough to discuss cannon fire.

    Pirates of the Burning Sea Designer David Hunt and Community Relations Director Troy Hewitt hosted a fan Q&A IRC chat and answered a number of community questions this independence day.

    A couple of weeks ago we held a small Q&A on IRC with a few large gaming communities / guilds who had shown an interest in Pirates of the Burning Sea. This was the first of many such events (we hope), and it was a great success.
