DescriptionAge of Sail II: Privateer's Bounty is the second game to bear the name Age of Sail II. What started life as an expansion soon grew to become a second edition of the game with plenty of bug fixes and new features included. Enhancements from the original Age of Sail II include a brand new pirate campaign, a variety of additional missions and new units; the paddleboat, submarine, hot air balloon, fire ship and bomb ship.
The game itself is identical in nature to the previous Age of Sail II, the premise being 18th and 19th century naval warfare. A variety of battles, both historical and fictional are included as well as a campaign mode that features several different sea-faring countries and factions; England, France, American Revolutionaries and Pirates. Objectives can vary greatly and can include offense or defense of targets on land or at sea, and different types of units are stocked with different levels of firepower, armor, speed and maneuverability.
Gameplay itself is achieved on a rotatable and zoom-able isometric map with several of your ships controls and status indicators on top of the graphics. In addition to the single player modes, the game also includes TCP/IP multiplayer support for up to 16 players, each with their own historical portrait and flag. Included also within the game is a scenario editor for building and designing your own missions and distributing them to others.
