Pirating 101 - Age of Booty for XBLA and PSN this October

Secure your eye-patch and twist on those scurvy hooks, Capcom is ready to set sail to swashbuckle on the seven seas with Age of Booty on Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network this Oct. 15th and Oct. 16th.

In Age of Booty, players team up with other online players or AI-controlled pirate ships to raid, pillage, sink, and destroy their way to dominance on the high seas. Manning the helm of their own pirate ship, apprentice pirates must raid villages, sink merchants, seize towns, and steal gold to stockpile their pirate factions with spoils of war and booty – all at the same time.

Age of Booty introduces swashbuckling action for the RTS (Real Time Strategy) newbie, ridding gamers of all the complicated, time consuming aspects of the RTS genre and retaining only the fun. Would-be pirate plunderers in Age of Booty won't have to worry about resource gathering, base building or giving multiple orders to unit groups, unlike a typical RTS game. Age of Booty is built for the casual videogame player with action–packed gameplay, simple controls, and robust multiplayer capabilities.

Age of Booty is rated E for Everyone and raids Xbox LIVE Arcade on Oct. 15th. The game also sets sail on the PlayStation Network on Oct. 16th.

Check out Producer D.A.R.Y.L. Allison’s blog post on Unity for more information on the price, the PC version, and the demos.
