Pirates of the Caribbean Online shutdown 19 Sept 2013

If you used to play Pirates of the Caribbean Online (POTCO) you may not know that the game is being turned off by Disney on the 19th of September.  The last weeks of the game have seen the pay-wall come down and players can do anything in game for free (big ships, higher levels, extra missions, etc.)

It was a good game.  The sailing was a little video-gamey, but the ability to put all your friends on the same ship and each take different jobs was fun.



Now that it’s over people may be looking for a replacement pirate themed MMO.  Look no further than Pirates of the Burning Sea  This vast, beautiful, and well written game offers a lot of pirate themed fun.  Set in a semi historical geographical accurate Caribbean this game has ship to ship combat, player vs player combat (called avatar combat or avcom for short), and crafting or economic play.

If you are sad about POTCO closing down (and I am) You should definitely check out PotBS.
