Bethesda Softworks today announced plans to release a sequel to its exciting Pirates of the Caribbean video game based on Walt Disney Pictures' blockbuster film, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Legend of Jack Sparrow will feature a blend of fast-paced action and adventure that captures the entertaining characters, settings, and spirit of the first movie. Slated for release in 2006, the video game sequel is being developed in association with 7 Studios for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PC, and will be distributed under license from Buena Vista Games, Inc.
Piracy, smuggling, buried treasure (not to mention kidnapping, sword fighting looting, pilfering, and other acts of villainy)…what’s not to love about Captain Jack Sparrow? Jack Sparrow is the ultimate video game character – with his cocky swagger and his offbeat personality – and players will be able to experience his adventures first hand in this exciting action game.
Gamers will slash and hack their way through a dozen locations, with fully interactive levels and varied gameplay. Action will take place in a variety of lush, immersive settings, including burning buildings, wrecked ships, and misty moonlit caves.
The gameplay experience will be thoroughly engrossing, as one minute you are fighting hordes of your enemies, while the next you're evading capture by the Royal Navy. You learn new moves and combos as the game progresses, allowing even more spectacular and deadly attacks during combat.
