Atari uses the first preview of its upcoming buccaneer sim to officially open the game's Web site.
Ever since it was announced, the remake of Sid Meier's Pirates! has had PC-loving landlubbers itching to try out their virtual sea legs. Today, the first trailer of the Firaxis-developer buccaneer sim debuted, giving would-be scurvy sea dogs a two-minute initial glimpse of Pirates! in action.
While not the first footage of the game to be released, the official trailer does showcase the rich and varied aspects of Pirates! In just under two minutes, viewers are treated to shots of ships both traveling on the high seas and locked in Master and Commander-style cannon battles and some intense hand-to-hand swashbuckling. Also featured are the role-playing aspects of the game, which will have players' characters wandering through both rough-and-ready port towns and attending high society balls.
