I was reading and re-reading the developer letter to the community from Flying Lab Software about the pushed-back release date of Pirates of the Burning Sea. In essence, the part of the letter that had me reading over and over was the fact that the beta phase is set to blow up and add a bunch more people at the end of June, as in... this month.
Many of you probably know by now I like Pirates. Pirates > Ninjas. I love the history, the style, the boats, the mystique... the rampant dunkeness. It was a grand ole time. Being down in the Keys, or being in Beaufort N.C. just reminded me of a time long since gone. I'm really looking forward to giving Flying Lab's game a try. Hopefully it'll live up to my expectations.
So be on the lookout, no pun intended, for an invite over the next couple weeks. One of the more intriguing MMOs to come out in a good while is ramping up towards "GOLD". Here's hoping those guys can pull it off.
