Pirates of the Burning Sea was a pretty good MMO, well at least that’s how I felt about it after playing the free trial. It’s considerably more fun and rewarding then most other pirate MMO’s on the market and it’s decently populated with players too, and that’s about to improve. Flying Lab Software earlier announced (amidst fan uproar) that Pirates is now Free2Play, which I am guessing is because the game seemed as if it wasn’t making a substantial enough profit.
The option to pay 14.99 per month for enhanced XP, loot and other premium features exist for super-fans of the game, though you can still experience everything the game has to offer for no charge at all. It’s worth taking the plunge if you’re a fan of pirate themed games, and even more-so now that it doesn’t cost you a thing!
