Pirates of the Burning Sea is a massive multiplayer online RPG (MMORPG) set in the Caribbean islands in the 18th century. You play the role of a seasoned captain, owning a ship and crew of his own, as you seek fame and adventure across the vast waters. In the game you can decide for yourself how your career at sea will go by taking on various assignments and thus building a certain reputation.

It is up to you whether you want to make these available for free or for a fee. Thanks to Valve’s Steam technology, the epic adventure won’t be over any time soon, as updates will be released regularly with new features. Are you up for the challenge of old-fashioned action, trading with other fleets and bloodthirsty pirates?
