Berlin, 2008-01-08: With a new trailer for Bounty Bay Online, Frogster starts the countdown for the long-anticipated colony add-on today. The second large expansion for the sailor MMORPG will be launched on Thursday, January 15th. With the upcoming content package, player guilds will be able to establish entire colonies complete with towns and harbours in the historical explorer setting. The update allows guilds to create their individual home territory and retreat, as well as a profitable trading base. Once created, guilds choose the appearance of their own colonies and control their development and commercial policies.
The colony add-on will be available for both the subscription and free-2-play server and has a download size of roughly 500 MB. It is going to be installed automatically with the next start of Bounty Bay Online. Players can continue to use their existing accounts and characters without any restrictions. The new trailer is available as web stream on:

About Bounty Bay Online
With Bounty Bay Online players enter the Age of Discovery from the 15th to the 17th century. MMO fans are able to choose an online career as a merchant, sailor, fisherman, pirate or adventurer and make their fortune at land and on the seven seas. Alone or with a guild of players, many adventures and gripping quests lie on their way. Thousands of ancient discoveries on all continents like the pyramids of Gizah or the Chinese Wall are waiting to be explored. Bounty Bay Online features a unique trade system based on supply and demand. After exciting PvP combat at land and on the seas, strong guilds can take control of cities and decide upon their destiny. In April 2008 Frogster has started a free-to-play server with an integrated item shop as an alternative to the subscription model, so that new sailors can now roam the Seven Seas without any fixed costs.
