[i]Sid Meier’s Pirates![/i] has completed production, according to Atari and developer Firaxis. In the game, players will assume the role of a Pirate Captain in the 17th century Caribbean trying to become one of the most revered and feared pirates in history. Sounds fun.
“The new Pirates! carries on with the great gameplay and design simplicity tradition of the award-winning original while adding more challenging and exciting battle options, and a deeper and more varied role-playing experience,” says Atari. “In addition, an entirely new game engine delivers updated gameplay, stunning new features, spectacular 3D graphics and enhanced surround sound.
Preordering for the game is also under way, and people that reserve the game will get the special limited edition for the price of the regular version.
