Seattle, WA (September 16, 2010) Flying Lab Software has released Power & Prestige, the eagerly anticipated first expansion to its critically acclaimed MMORPG Pirates of the Burning Sea™. Flying Lab Software is also announcing that its next major update, expected in the Fall of 2010, will take Pirates of the Burning Sea free-to-play with the ability to purchase premium content and various in-game items such as missions, clothes, pets and more. Players will also have the option to purchase a subscription plan known as the Captain’s Club, which is expected to include access to certain premium content, account upgrades and discounts.
“Since we launched Pirates of the Burning Sea™ in January 2008, players have been battling on the high seas to control the Caribbean. With Power & Prestige’s Port Governance, we’ve added a whole new level of immersion to the struggle for power,” said Russell Williams, CEO of Flying Lab Software. “Players also have access to a wealth of new content, and have a whole new fighting school to master. We’re also excited to make Pirates of the Burning Sea even more accessible by making it free-to-play in the near future so that even more players can enjoy the amazing ship battles, in-depth missions, and the rich Caribbean setting.”
Power & Prestige expands upon the game’s real-time Port Conquest system, allowing players to not only capture ports on behalf of their parent nations, but to also become a Port Governor with great economic and strategic influence. It also contains over 60 new missions, a new “Brawling” fighting school, and much more.
Power & Prestige is available to Pirates of the Burning Sea subscribers for no extra charge as an automatic download. New players can play the expansion by visiting www.burningsea.com/try
