Pirates Of The Burning Sea Goes Free Chat

When news broke on Thursday about Pirates of the Burning sea going Free-to-play, we got in contact with Flying Lab Software and DEMANDED TIME FOR INTERVIEW-CHAT. They submitted, fearing our mighty wrath. WE THANK THEM FOR THEIR TIME. Er... anyway, here's CEO Russell Williams and Head Of The Design Department Declan O'Connell talking about this move to go free-to-play before the end of the year,…

Less Pieces Of Eight: Burning Sea Going Free

News that Pirates Of The Burning Sea has just released its first free expansion - the previously mentioned Whale-bone-ship-featuring Power & Prestige - has been somewhat shadowed by the simultaneous announcement that it's joining Everquest 2 and Lord of the Rings Online and going free-to-play. When? Fall. That's soon, isn't it, Ameri-chums? Relatively soon, anyway. The model seems to be payments for "premium" content and…

Perhaps, if you've not already sailed in its waters, you'd…

Pirate Ships, Still No Ninja MMO

So Pirates Of The Burning Sea is now live. One word review: patchy. Aha! I've still got it. I really like some elements of it, and bombing about in my boat, trading and getting into minor scuffles, is kind of fun. The towns, overall missions, and sword fights are a bit less interesting, however. I'm being paid to write about the game elsewhere so I'll…

Pirates Of The Burning Beta

Buccaneering MMO Pirates Of the Burning Sea is about to open up its public beta, which reportedly appears today. (Although no sign of it at the time of posting.) I've been playing on the private beta and actually had a jolly (roger) good time. It's a big mishmash of pirate-game staples, such as sword-fighting, raiding sea-forts, sinking ships and looking for treasure, and it all…
