Port Royale 3 On The Horizon

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.
