The New Sid Meier's Pirates!
Now it's time for Sid Meier and Firaxis Games to bring this
exquisitely rich, action-adventure game into the 21st century. An
entirely new game engine will deliver updated gameplay, stunning new
features, spectacular 3D graphics and enhanced surround sound, so
players can fully experience the intrigue, adventure and danger of
life as a pirate on the Spanish Main.
In Pirates! you take the leading role of a Pirate Captain in
the 17th century Caribbean amassing fortune and fame in an attempt
to seize your rightful place as one of the most revered (and
feared!) pirates in history. Test your skills as a sea captain
exploring the high seas and exotic ports in a richly detailed 3D
world. Overtake the enemy and seize valuable booty. Exchange
plank-shattering broadsides in fierce naval battles, and engage in
duels with worthy opposing captains.
As your reputation and skills grow, so will the size and quality of
your crew, and your ability to take on larger enemy ships, raid and
plunder heavily fortified ports, and locate ancient treasure.
There's a whole cast of interesting and dangerous characters to
meet, mysteries to solve, exotic island destinations to discover,
and powerful alliances to forge!
The new Pirates! carries on with the great gameplay and
design simplicity tradition of the award-winning original while
adding more challenging and exciting battle options, and a deeper
and more varied role-playing experience, including multiple paths to
a wealthy, happy retirement. This and many other features and
additions make this gaming classic one of the most highly
anticipated releases of this century!
