New Features in Pirates of the Burning Sea MMO

May 29, 2009


Flying Lab Software has introduced Skirmish, a PvP
system for its flagship MMORPG title Pirates of the Burning Sea.
 Skirmish gives players a new way to create their own risk-free PvP battles both
on land and at sea .

Using a customizable lobby system, players can create swashbuckling or ship
battles with up to 48 participants.  There are no national or career
restrictions on skirmish battles, so it’s a great way for societies to train new
members or try out more advanced tactics without losing precious ships and
equipment. The Skirmish system also allows players to get experience with large
battles on demand, so they can experience fleet combat even when they don’t win
a place in one of the epic Port Battles.

 “We’re very excited about Skirmish,”, said Russell Williams, CEO of Flying Lab
Software. “we think it really complements our existing PvP and Port Conquest
systems, as it lets players PvP in a fun way before getting down to the serious
business of defending the realm.”

Skirmish also features new custom-made maps/environments for players to battle
over. More battle types such as capture the flag will be coming in the near


       On-demand, risk free ship and avatar battles.

       No national or career restrictions.

       Many customizable battle options.

       Up to 48 players in each battle, on two or four teams.

       New maps/environments.
