CAPCOM’S AWARD WINNING AGE OF BOOTY SETS SAIL
FOR WINDOWS PC TODAY

Capcom’s Age of Booty™ for Windows PC
launched today. Developed by Certain Affinity™, known for their previous
work on the Halo® series, Age of Booty has stood out as a unique strategy
experience for the online market since its original launch on the Xbox 360 back
in October. It won a Best of Award for 2008 from IGN in the strategy category,
and went on to receive critical accolades from other respected gaming sites like
Giant Bomb, a reader’s choice nomination from 1UP.com, and a Top 10 Awards of
2008 from Fidgit.com. Currently, Age of Booty is nominated for
Best Original Game and Best Multiplayer Game by The Xbox Live Arcade Awards.  
Players can purchase Age of Booty from sites such as Steam, Direct to Drive, and
Digital River among others, and a demo of the PC version is also available for
players to try the game for free.

PS3 owners now have the highly anticipated
addition of trophy support for Age of Booty. Users may win coveted awards
for their efforts as they play throughout the game. The points allotted to the
various trophy tiers contribute to the users’ overall level seen in their gamer
profile. For anyone who hasn’t tried out the game on the PS3, a new trial
version is now available. Users can experience the high seas hijinks for free by
downloading a demo version of the game from the PlayStation Store.   Additional
map pack DLC will also become available periodically to PSN users through this
month and next.

Also coming this month, Xbox 360 owners can
expect to take their Age of Booty experience to the next level with the
addition of NXE Avatar support. Users will see their customized Avatars in
player detail screens, in-game messages and sailing ships or rafts depending on
whether they win or lose.              

Set in the swashbuckling era, Age of Booty
is a casual real-time multiplayer strategy game that puts players at the helm of
their own pirate ship with the goal of sending your enemies to the briny deep,
and looting and capturing towns for your pirate faction. In Age of Booty,
players team up with friends online or AI-controlled pirate ships to raid,
pillage, sink, and destroy their way to dominance on the high seas. Spoils of
war and booty are used to upgrade and customize pirate ships to make them even
more deadly as players take on 21 unique challenges and seven of the most
devious Pirate Alliances on the high seas. Gain notoriety and fame by climbing
the online leader boards. Create and share custom maps using the intuitive map
creation system. Players can expect free content updates for Age of Booty
though-out the lifespan of the game, with over 20 additional maps already
available to download for free. More free content is coming later this month and
in April.
