ARR, AHOY MATEYS! HAPPY TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY!

Pirates of the Burning Sea is the official video game of International Talk Like A Pirate Day (September 19th). Yarr, it be true. To commemorate this auspicious day, Flying Lab Software has created special missions and secret booty just for the occasion. Until September 26th2008, players can log in to Pirates of the Burning Sea and party with the grog-swillin’, booty-plundering founders of the day, Cap’n Slappy and Ol’ Chumbucket. These rum-swiggin’ salts will be taking their rightful place in the Burning Sea as they hand out missions and teach everyone a thing or two about getting booty.

Join the crew to party and talk piratical talk!
