'Pirates Constructible Strategy Game Online' Gets Expansion

Pirates CSG Online is based on WizKids’ successful and critically acclaimed constructible tabletop strategy game, where players use die-cut cards to construct 3D galleons, sloops and frigates and plunder the high seas in search of treasure. Similarly, the digital version of the CSG allows players to build and customize fleets, explore islands for treasure and attack fellow online buccaneers for their booty. Players can also communicate in real time with opponents and allies to trade treasure and ships to round out their collections.

“Pirates of the Spanish Main is the first of many expansions SOE has planned to support the growing community of players for Pirates CSG Online,” said Christopher E. Sturr, Senior Global Brand Manger, Sony Online Entertainment. “They’ve been eager for more content, and I think their patience will be more than rewarded with this expansion.”

Pirates of the Spanish Main introduces a fleet of 68 new virtual ships for players to collect – stealthy corvettes, majestic galleons and speedy schooners – and complete crew rosters for the Spanish, English and Pirate navies. The expansion also adds even more “treasure” icons that can be placed on the online map and protected or looted from other digital buccaneers. Single digital game packs are available for $3.99 each, and include all the tools necessary for play online. Digital game pack boxes, which include 18 digital game packs of Pirates of the Spanish Main, as well as one random Limited Edition bonus ship from the Spanish Main set, are available for $65.00.

Along with the previously released Pirates of Davy Jones’ Curse, the Spanish Main expansion kicks off an exciting schedule of releases and activities for 2007, with a digital expansion scheduled for release every other month.

Currently in development at SOE’s Denver studios Pirates of the Spanish Main is scheduled to launch Tuesday, February 27, 2007.
