PotBS - GDS Preview @ MOGD
Multiplayer Online Games Directory reports back on Pirates of the Burning Sea as seen at the GDC.
Walking the fine line between historical realism and fantasy, Pirates of the Burning Sea offers players the chance to fight either as a pirate, or as a member of one of three navies, the British, the Spanish or the French. There are advantages to choosing each of these options, but joining one of the navies gives players a chance to experience a different area of the game pirates will never be able to enjoy. Regardless, in beta, they have found that most players want to live the life of a pirate!
