Bethesda Softworks, Disney Interactive, and Ubi Soft Entertainment today announced that Ubi Soft Entertainment will publish Pirates of the Caribbean for the Xbox video game system from Microsoft and PC CD-ROM throughout Europe. Inspired by one of this summer's most anticipated blockbusters, the game will bring swashbuckling adventures and rich worlds to Xbox and PC this August. Pirates of the Caribbean is being developed by Akella and Bethesda Softworks.

Featuring stunning graphics, deep role-playing elements, and thrilling quests, the Pirates of the Caribbean game offers players the unique opportunity to prove their mettle against the legendary buccaneers of the Caribbean.

"The Pirates of the Caribbean game transports players to the 17th Century where they can experience life as a pirate in any way they see fit," said video game executive producer Todd Vaughn. "Whether they want to be feared by all and welcome nowhere, or just enjoy compelling missions or a life at sea, we are creating a game that fits their gameplay style."

The Pirates of the Caribbean video game is a unique role-playing experience with an intriguing storyline and the ability to explore everything the world has to offer. Deciding to become a cold-hearted mercenary for hire, a peaceful and profitable merchant or a swashbuckling pirate will influence future interactions. Gaining wealth and experience gives players the opportunity to hire crewmembers, sail larger ships, and uncover priceless treasures.

Players will enjoy advanced AI, incredibly detailed characters and vessels, breath taking views at sea, and lush, exotic locales. Enhancing the game's realism, wind and water conditions will affect how ships sail and fight. Day and night lighting and beautiful water effects make the game come alive.

"The appeal of Pirates of the Caribbean is timeless. The franchise will now have the opportunity to transcend many entertainment mediums and genres," said Thierry Braille, vice president, Managing Director EMEA at Buena Vista Games. "Bethesda's reputation and expertise in creating compelling RPGs will make Pirates of the Caribbean a role-playing game experience that will reflect the true spirit of the franchise."
