Beyond the Horizon integrates a significant geographical expansion of the historical explorer and sailor world. For the first time, ocean adventurers will have the opportunity to sail right around the whole world using the Cape Horn route.

With Bounty Bay Online players enter the Age of Discovery from the 15th to the 17th century. MMO fans are able to choose an online career as a merchant, sailor, fisherman, pirate or adventurer and make their fortune at land and on the seven seas. Alone or with a guild of players, many adventures and gripping quests lie on their way. Thousands of ancient discoveries on all continents like the pyramids of Gizah or the Chinese Wall are waiting to be explored. Bounty Bay Online features a unique trade system based on supply and demand. After exciting PvP combat at land and on the seas, strong guilds can take control of cities and decide upon their destiny.

To celebrate the two year anniversary of the sailing MMO game, all players get double experience points for all creatures they kill until next Monday. Besides that, every player on the free-to-play server “Mary Read” receives a credit of 22 item shop points as backing for their adventures in the maritime online world. Moreover, all players are called upon to recount their most original anecdotes from the time since release. The best story will be rewarded with 500 credit points for the item shop.

Despite the rising subscription figures, Frogster, meanwhile, solely focusing on the operation of MMO games, undertook the experiment to launch a German free-to-play server alongside the subscription based server in spring of 2008. Within four weeks the publisher, observed a five-digit figure increase in player numbers. Since August 2008, the new French version enjoys great popularity too. Here as well more and more players engage in gripping sea battles and enjoy the flourishing trade. Worldwide around 150,000 players are registered for Bounty Bay Online. In January 2009, Frogster launched the second large expansion pack: the Colony add-on. Apart from new boss encounters and sequels to high level quest lines, larger guilds can now seize control over entire colonies.
