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

I really can't wait for "Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned", I think it will look a lot like these mods but then with new graphics and stuff, I hope it will be as good as this game!

Since you are using vista, you are not supposed to install the game into the program files folder, install it into a different one. Its a small tip but it helped me.

So far I have only made one comment which was a complaint. I just want to say that this mod (build 13) Has to be the most professional mod I have ever seen. Unlike other mods, a lot of the material seems to have originally been in the game, the texturing for the new stuff is great! Especially with such a failure of an engine, you guys have really made this game enjoyable

HELP! I am doing the original story for this game and I have build 13 final. I've checked online and some storm is supposed to send me to dowesen after this one part of the quest, but it doesn't happen, then if I go to the map the game crashes. What do I do?
