Seattle, WA – It’s almost time to set sail on “Port Royale 4” and join the colonial powers of Spain, England, France and the Netherlands to embark in real-time trading in 17th century Caribbean.
Today, publisher Kalypso Media and developer Gaming Minds Studios are unveiling a brand-new game featurette as well as a collection of screenshots prior to Port Royale 4’s multiplatform (PS4 and Xbox One) launch on September 25.
With a nearly 30-year legacy, Port Royale 4 features the largest game world in the franchise including 12 square kilometers in which you can zoom in from the sky right down to every little hut. As the most complex and only real-time trading game in the genre, players will make use of the detailed sea map to avoid stormy weather regions, cliffs and shallow waters and create intricate trade routes across the Caribbean. All the while, they’ll keep a keen eye out for pirates and other privateers!
The sheer depth of the trading system, nation perks, captain’s traits and the four playable campaigns are all set to deliver a fascinating and multi-layered game. For many fans, one of the most exciting differences is the new turn-based sea battles that will further enhance the tactical game play.
