France to get Bounty Bay Online colony add-on

Berlin, 25.06.2009: The French version of the free colony add-on for Bounty Bay Online is to be released in France on 30th June 2009. The comprehensive expansion which has been available in Germany and England since January enables the historical seafarer world’s guilds to found their own whole colonies complete with towns and harbours. For this purpose the historical world of exploration has a total of 33 coastal territories standing ready for development. Along with the outside appearance of the colony, players can define the trading policies within their sphere of influence and also their colony’s future development. Upcoming guilds can in this way create a profitable trading centre and individual retreat.

Since its French launch in December 2008, the seafarer MMO has also enjoyed great popularity with already more than 50,000 explorers roving about on the Calypso game server. Community management and PR is taken care of locally in the territory by WGames and VPCOM.

Bounty bay Online is available free of charge. Download and register at www.bountybayonline.de.

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. After exciting PvP combat at land and on the seas, strong guilds can take control of colonies and cities and decide upon their destiny. Bounty Bay Online features a unique trade system based on supply and demand.
