Designed as a thrilling blend of role-playing and action Pirates of the Caribbean takes place in a large group of Caribbean islands during the golden age of piracy and high seas adventure. You will take command of a ship and its crew, swordfight with other captains, accept and complete daring quests, chase rumors of dangers and riches, and change allegiances amongst the colonial powers in the game. Through skill and daring, you will have the ability to obtain more power than the toughest captains in history ever dreamed possible.

You will be able to customize your captain, crew, skills, and attributes to their individual liking. During shore leave on the many fanciful islands, players can interact with townspeople and shopkeepers to replenish stores of ammo and crew, and explore the wilderness in search of adventure and treasure!

A party-based system on land and at sea allows you to hire friendly captains to form small fleets of ships for trade or battle, and your own band of adventurers when on land. Ultimately, you will be able to control your destiny by following the game story or sailing off in a search of pirate loot.

Pirates of the Caribbean features advanced AI, incredibly detailed characters and vessels, breath taking views at sea, and lush, exotic environments. Enhancing the game's realism, wind and water conditions will affect how ships sail and fight. Day and night lighting and jaw-dropping water effects make the game come alive.


- An epic role-playing game on land and at sea
- Gorgeous graphics and realistic weather effects
- Open-ended gameplay set in exotic locales
- Exciting high seas battles and thrilling duels
- Inspired by the feature film coming July 9th

Hi there
I used to play pirates of the caribbean once before and it was great.
My system back then was windows xp and i recently remembered this game again... i downloaded installed the game on my laptop (windows 7) and then your build. it installed correctly except that several files were missing from bethesda softworks/PROGRAM and then i run it but whenever i click new game it just goes to the loading screen and after several seconds it exits to desktop with the message "game engine has stopped working" or something similar. i thought it was the build at the beginning and so i unistalled it and then reinstall without the build but the same thing happens. can you help me? i already tried running it with other compatibility but it doesn't work still
Thanks a lot

did you install the games in Program Files?
If so move it to a place outside (eg. C:/My Games/Pirates of the Caribbean) ;)

Quite off topic but I don't know any other good site that is this active.

This game lags pretty much for me. It's not that I have a bad computer, I should be running this game smoothly. Don't know if it's due to that I run it on a quad-core, windows7 or something, I've tried compability mode xp service pack2/3 but that didn't work. I'd be very happy if anyone has a good solution for his or if I have to run it on a virtualbox with win-xp or something >_>

Voyage Century is an online multiplayer game; this game is an offline single player game.
