“Port Royale is an engrossing RTS title that pulls you in and doesn’t let go,” said Shane Nestler, executive vice president of Tri Synergy. “Players are going to be blown away by the real-time 3D sea battles.”

Set in the 16th and 17th centuries, Port Royale transports players into the past, recounting historic rivalries between pirates and buccaneers. Players acquire a taste of pirate and buccaneer mentality as they seize enemy villages, battle opponents in the high seas and search for hidden treasures throughout a host of challenging missions. With more than 60 towns to work through, 20 ships where players will encounter 3D real-time sea battles and a sophisticated trading system, Port Royale provides endless hours of gameplay. Priceless items such as gold, wine, grain, rum, and potatoes carry significant price tags for the average townsperson, but as a skilled pirate or trader these items can be attained by robbing fellow pirates, local townspeople or ships within the Caribbean “New World.” Be warned, reputation within society can haunt even the most skilled pirates and traders!
