The team behind Mount & Blade’s popular With Fire and Sword expansion has turned its attention to the high seas with piratical RPG Carribbean.
Carribbean is the product of Snowbird Games, which grew out of With Fire and Sword developer Snowberry Connection. The team will be working alongside TaleWorlds, the original Mount & Blade developer, on the new game.
Snowbird is selling the concept as a fusion of Mount & Blade’s mechanics with the “golden age of piracy”, and is particularly keen on the sandbox aspect it seems, with promises of living precisely the kind of pirate lifestyle you want to.
Grab the main points from the PR blurb below and hit up Snowbird’s site for more information. Carribbean is expected on PC in September.
