Pirates of the Burning Sea: Expansion Arriving in August

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe CitadelPosts: 23,085MMORPG.COM Staff Epic

Sony Online Entertainment and Flying Lab have announced that the free Power & Prestige expansion for Pirates of the Burning Sea will officially launch on August 24, 2010. Power & Prestige is currently in open beta on the public test server and will remain so until launch day. (Head here to find out how to make a PTS account)

We announced Power & Prestige, the first free expansion for Pirates of the Burning Sea, at the Penny Arcade Expo last year. We’ve spent almost all of our time since then working on new features and content for the expansion, which is due for release this summer. We’re now ready to talk about exactly what those features are, and today we’re going to give you a broad overview of what to expect.

Check out the boatload of changes in the Power & Prestige features list.

    I think their time and funds would have been invested much better had they allowed for full ship interiors and allow players to walk around their ships while sailing, would have given the game a much more immversive feel.

    I thought this game was dead already?

    Dead in the meaning not worth to devote time and money? Then yes :P

    Dead in the meaning servers are down? Then no.

    Reading the changelist just sounds like an average MMO patch, not an expansion. 60 missions in an MMO isn't a huge addition, the rest are patch style changes.

    The only reason people think it's dead is because you rarely hear anything about it. But last time I tried it there were plenty of people playing. It was actually pretty fun in an AARRR! kind of way.

    May give it another go as this looks to add much needed depth it lacked before.

    the new port governance system where ports will be run by players and the complete revamp of classes and avcom are hardly "patch style changes".

    If there is a free trial I'll definately check it out after the expansion goes live. Always wanted to try it but heard it wasn't in the best shape, hope the changes make it worth the time/money.

    This would certainly be an impressive announcement, were it not well over two years from release.  Waiting for content in this game has long since proved a waste of time.  This is material they were baiting us with since the early days of the game.  That's some unforgivable lead time...
