Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned will take place before the events of the film series, according to IGN. Players will explore the world on both land and sea, and interact with various NPCs in determining their character's moral center. nope "We're committed to making conversations in the game entertaining," said director Alex Peters of the game. "We've created a script that takes advantage of an entirely new story set within the world of the Pirates of the Caribbean and wholeheartedly embraces the tone and humor players expect."
Combat will be an actiony affair, while RPG mechanics will see the player leveling up over the course of the game. The ship-to-ship combat is said to be "vastly different than any other game," and economic systems are being considered.
The game is in development for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. No release date yet.
