Written Monday, September 29, 2008 By James Parkin
Hey guys, we just got word from Capcom that their upcoming pirate RTS arcade game, Age of Booty should be arriving onto the arcade October 15th.
"hoy thar, matey!
Secure your eye-patch and twist on those scurvy hooks, Capcom is ready to set sail to swashbuckle on the seven seas with Age of Booty on Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network this Oct. 15 th and Oct. 16 th.
In Age of Booty, players team up with other online players or AI-controlled pirate ships to raid, pillage, sink, and destroy their way to dominance on the high seas. Manning the helm of their own pirate ship, apprentice pirates must raid villages, sink merchants, seize towns, and steal gold to stockpile their pirate factions with spoils of war and booty – all at the same time.
Age of Booty introduces swashbuckling action for the RTS (Real Time Strategy) newbie, ridding gamers of all the complicated, time consuming aspects of the RTS genre and retaining only the fun. Would-be pirate plunderers in Age of Booty won't have to worry about resource gathering, base building or giving multiple orders to unit groups, unlike a typical RTS game. Age of Booty is built for the casual videogame player with action–packed gameplay, simple controls, and robust multiplayer capabilities.
Age of Booty is rated E for Everyone and raids Xbox LIVE Arcade on Oct. 15 th. The game also sets sail on the PlayStation Network on Oct. 16 th."
I would like to throw a disclaimer out there as Capcom also told us Mega Man 9 would be releasing this Wednesday, and neither Major Nelson (Xbox LIVE Director) or the Gamerscoreblog crew (numerous Microsoft employees) have slated it for release. So take this with a grain of salt.
