Berlin, 28.10.2009: What would a seafarer be without his ship? On 25th November, five new types of ship will be launching down the Bounty Bay Online slipway: With the release of the‚Beyond the Horizon’ add-on, five new ship types are being introduced, each one being exclusively available to an individual character class. Players will be able to obtain the magnificent caravels exclusively in the new cities of the north and south American continents, they will also only be available to high level seadogs. The following ships will be assigned to the individual characters as shown below:
• Royal Military Officer: Royal Multi Mast Armor Ship
• Armed Businessman: Heavy Multi Mast Trade Ship
• Imperial Guardian: Guardian Multi Mast Vessel
• Caribbean Pirate: Multi Mast Ghost Ship
• Treasure Hunter: Heavy Multi Mast Minelayer
All of the ships are not only visually different from one another, they also differentiate themselves in their cargo capacity, manoeuvrability, size of crew and number of cannon. For example, the Royal Military Officer braves the dangers of the ocean with a very robust ship loaded with cannon, while the Treasure Hunter sails the seven seas with an extremely manoeuvrable, speedy vessel.
‘Beyond the Horizon’ is the third and up to now, most comprehensive add-on to Bounty Bay Online and provides over 250,000 European players with numerous new features such as the new continent of South America, six new cities, five new character classes, new instances, an expanded pet system with new pets, new PvP arenas and tournaments, new ranking systems and a new mini-game. In keeping with its predecessors,‘Beyond the Horizon’ will be available to download free of charge. Players can obtain regular bulletins about the content of the up-coming add-on at a special microsite: http://bth.bountybayonline.com.
