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
It goes without saying that 2013 has been a huge year for PiratesAhoy!, and our flagship mod project, PotC: New Horizons, is a testament to our community's incredible level of dedication and enthusiasm. The culmination of ten years' worth of work has resulted in one of the biggest and most impressive mods to ever grace such a relatively unknown game.
The popularity of New Horizons has been rising steadily with each subsequent release, and with the brand new Build 14 Beta 3.1* having just officially rolled out, the mod has soared even higher into the top 100 mods on ModDB.
So, with this in mind, we ask this simple question:
Can New Horizons finally rank in the top 100 for ModDB's coveted Mod of the Year awards?
In previous years, New Horizons hasn't accumulated enough votes to claim this accolade, but we feel that this year truly is the mod's time to shine.
As a reminder of all the great content the mod has to offer, here's another look at the excellent Beta 3 Release Trailer, produced by Diperscitus:

The top 100 mods of 2013 will be revealed on December 11, so you'll need to make your vote quickly for it to count. After that, voting for the best of these 100 will commence. If New Horizons reaches that stage, we'll let you know!
In the meantime, those of you with Age of Pirates 2 should check out Modernknight1's highly anticipated GoF: Eras module 2. He would also love to see your screenshots posted here.
There's also a full release of GoF 2.0 (not to be confused with Eras module 2) now available here.
