Pirates very often get the short end of the stick. When they're raiding ocean vessels off of the coast of Somalia, it is probably well-deserved. But when it comes to role-playing videogames, one has to wonder: Why don't people get more games starring pirates? They have saved the world as a spiky haired protagonist and slain more dragons than any of them care to count. It's high time their role-playing took to the high seas.
If you've ever felt the same, prepare to have your wishes granted by Disney Interactive Studios and Propaganda Games. The publisher and developer are working on a Pirates of the Caribbean videogame, but this isn't your typical licensed game. Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned is an action RPG set in a huge open world. The story takes place before the Pirates of the Caribbean movies with an original plot where players step into the shoes of a new pirate beset with all manner of nasty enemies. Moral choices, character building, and a supernatural world await. Sound interesting? IGN has got the first details on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC game, courtesy of Alex Peters, Game Director for Armada of the Damned.
