Kalypso have announced that the third instalment of their 17-century Caribbean swashbuckling naval management game is set to appear in “Q2 2012″. As in other Port Royale games, you will be set with naval victory, but have economic and military options at your disposal. Kalypso have explained that this consists in two quite different paths: “Following the path of the adventurer will lead the player on a naval conquest where they must gain notoriety through raids, piracy, bounty hunting, plundering and conquering cities as they strive to build their new Caribbean empire. The route of the trader sees the player using their economic know-how to become the most powerful trading tycoon in the New World by setting up trade routes, building production facilities and developing cites.” The game will also feature multiplayer, so players can use these toolsets to go up against each other on the high seas.
