Pirates of the Burning Sea - hands-on

Developer, Flying Lab Software is hoping to sink its hooks into the massively-profitable MMO market with Pirates of the Burning Sea. We scored some hands-on time with an early build of the game, and got a chance to sample the character creation and combat system.

You%26rsquo;ll get to swear allegiance to the English, French, or Spanish. Serving one of these nations works like a faction, and opens up three classes. You can defend your nation%26rsquo;s ports as a Naval Officer, engage in state sponsored piracy as a Privateer, or go Han Solo on the Caribbean as a Smuggler. Better yet, you can opt to carve your own path as a low-down and dirty pirate.
