Kalypso Media has released a new tutorial video for their upcoming empire-building game, Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants.  The video will walk viewers through some of the game's basic gameplay elements showcasing the merchant campaign, which focuses on commodity trading and how best to buy and sell goods.  Viewers will also learn how to level up within the game, earning rank as they become a better trader.

Interesting concept for a video.  I wonder if the makers of Civilization V made one similar for that game, as I was confused as all get out in the demo.



Port Royale 3 - Tutorial Video #1 Available

Today we have released a new tutorial video for our upcoming empire-building game, Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants. The video walks viewers through some of the basic elements of gameplay from Port Royale 3; showcasing the merchant campaign, which focuses on commodity trading and how best to buy and sell goods. Along with that, viewers will learn about how to level up within the game, earning rank as they become a better trader.  Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants will be available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and console in North America this summer.   

In Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants, players will embark upon an epic adventure through the Caribbean during the turbulent 17th century where the naval powers of Spain, England, France and the Netherlands all fight for supremacy in the colonies. Players take on the role of a young captain trying to build his fortune and reputation in the new world colonies. The campaign consists of two different paths for the young protagonist to follow: adventurer and trader.

Following the path of the adventurer will lead the player on a naval conquest where they must gain notoriety through raids, piracy, bounty hunting, plundering and conquering cities as they strive to build their new Caribbean empire.

The route of the trader sees the player using their economic know-how to become the most powerful trading tycoon in the New World by setting up trade routes, building production facilities and developing cites.

In free-play mode, the player crafts a combination of the two paths, creating a unique and challenging scenario on the path to increase wealth and power.
