Plunder Pirates - Ex-Sony devs. and Ian Livingstone to bring new 3D RTS (Universal)

We are Midoki, a start-up of ex-Sony devs who decided to leave the doldrums of home consoles and move to more exciting seas! And this is our new game: Plunder pirates!

‘Plunder Pirates’ is an epic online multiplayer strategy game in full 3D where you will be able to build beautifully detailed pirate islands, explore uncharted waters, fight rival players, and join your friends in competing pirate guilds.

This is what Ian Livignstone, Industry legend and also our Chairman said:

Plunder Pirates takes the combat strategy genre to a new level by adding amazing 3D graphics, sea exploration and combat against both enemies - and friends. The team at Midoki have rolled decades of console game tech development and expertise into a fun-filled, action-packed visual epic for mobile. It’s been a pleasure working with them.

And a iPhone and iPad friendly version of the video on Vimeo --> http://vimeo.com/82113918

Some of the key features:

- Build - Create your own formidable pirate island in full 3D.
- Explore - Sail the uncharted seas, discover new lands, monsters, and rival pirates.
- Fight - Recruit and train a crew of awesome Pirates and fight rival player online.
- Guilds – Join a guild and unlock specialist perks, quests, chat and much more.
- 3D graphics – Cutting edge visuals using Midoki's inhouse game engine.

Coming out early in 2014. We hope you guys find it as exciting as we do!

Eh not interested in multiplayer only type games (usually end up needing a lot of cash for those) but to be fair it looks great. It'll probably be a free social-type game? Anyhow, Best of luck

^THAT. I hope it doesnt end up being another freemium crap.

I am already inclined to think this is freemium though. Freemium is the fastest way to distribute the game to increase the visibility and increase the number of players fast due to hints of this being an online game.
