Tri Synergy To Bring 'Port Royale' To North America

by Rainier on March 24, 2003 @ 11:26 a.m. PST

Port Royale is an empire-building RTS simulation with expansive environments of over 4,000,000 square miles, where players can choose to be one of four great nations; England, France, Spain or Holland, during the battle for colonization. PC gamers will become true buccaneers as they plunder and seize their enemies’ villages or as a trader, amass a commanding fleet and strike against the pirates first, while trying to develop their status in society.

“Port Royale is a refreshing take on the classic RTS genre,” said Shane Nestler, executive vice president of Tri Synergy. “Players will become so engrossed in the ‘pirate-esque’ world of real-time, 3D sea battles and searching for hidden treasure, that they will never want to leave.”

With explosive naval battles that display the ships damage, smoke and blazing fires in strikingly realistic 3D, a full “pick up and play” tutorial mode and multiplayer mode that supports up to 8 people via LAN or internet, Port Royale is set to sail to the top of the RTS genre.
