Default City of Abandoned Ships - Scheduled for May Release

April 20th, 2009, 20:35
Worthplaying posts an update on Akella's and Seaward.ru's piracy themed rpg, City of Abandoned Ships, giving a (presumably U.S.) release date of May 12. There's apparently been a title overhaul as well, with the game being referred to as Age of Pirates 2:CoAS. Here's the features list:
Key Features
  • Face fierce ship-to-ship combat or stand toe-to-toe with the most feared swordsmen in the Caribbean
  • Choose from 3 different characters and 3 different classes, Merchant, Corsair and Adventurer, each with their own quest line with more than 10 missions
  • Four main campaigns with over 40 quests
  • Over 40 quest generators allowing for an additional infinite amount of quests
  • New combat system for faster fights
  • Choose from 3 weapon classes: light, medium and heavy
  • New “PIRATES” role playing system with the following characteristics: Power, Impression, Reaction, Authority, Talent, Endurance, Success
  • Advanced trading system
  • Meet real-life historical characters such as Jamaican governors Colonel Thomas Lynch and Thomas Modyford
  • Accurate maps of the Caribbean with a vast array of land-based locations, from dense South American jungle to dark Caribbean cave complexes (3 times the size of the “Caribbean Tales” world)
More information.

Hm, doesn't sound bad.

There are so far only very few Pirate-themed offline C-RPGs available …

I'm looking forward to this! I hope it's as modifiable as it's predecessors as, I have to admit, every one of their pirate games since Sea Dogs has needed some hefty modding.

It's about time this one surfaced again. It has been a while. Usually when a title submarines in publicity (at least it has on this site) it means it's still a long way off. I'm skeptical on the May release, but that would be nice.
