    "Var är mitt träben!?"

    Reva seglen! Lastskepp på babord sida!
    Corsairs tar oss tillbaka till piraternas glans-
    dagar, precis som den gamla klassikern Pirates.
    Med 1700-talets Karibien som bakgrund gäller
    det att skapa sig en framtid och samla rikedomar.
    Välj mellan en mängd fartyg som du bygger din
    fotta av, befäst din bas, möt legendariska
    personligheter och sök lyckan i nya världen...
