Pirates of the Burning Sea is an MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) featuring high seas action and adventure in a world of pirates and plunder. Set against the backdrop of the New World of the 18th Century, players can choose one of three nations, England, France or Spain, or choose the role of a Pirate and battle it out for glory and power. Virtual buccaneers can engage in fierce ship to ship combat in real time, complete with the roar of cannon fire and the crunch of timber as masts and hulls are shattered, sending enemies to the bottom of the briny deep or helpless and ripe for looting. Pirates of the Burning Sea also allows players to choose one of three fighting styles, classic Fencing, the flashy dual-wielding Florentine or treacherous Dirty Fighting, and engage in intense one melee combat in one on one duels, as well as boarding and taking control of enemy vessels. The game's Conquest system turns any of the more than 80 ports into a battleground, as rival players accrue points in both PvE (Player vs. Environment) and combat, culminating in a period of PvP (Player Vs. Player) warfare that determines who controls the port, and all of its valuable economic resources. Burning Sea also features an economy completely run by players, forging their own empires across the Caribbean; players can build their own quarries, distilleries and timber mills, managing large-scale production and distribution in a cutthroat world of commerce where profits are the dream and desperate measures the reality.
