WIN your very own 'Pirates!' Video Game ... TODAY!

Sid Meier's 'Pirates!®' is among the most popular and loved titles in gaming history. Originally released in 1987, 'Pirates!' received unprecedented critical acclaim for crossing multiple game genres to offer unique, unrivaled gameplay options. 'Pirates!' set the industry standard for innovative game design with its unique blend of open-ended role-playing, real-time adventures and thrilling action sequences.

It debuted on the Commodore 64 and soon became one of the most popular games ever on the Macintosh. Sid Meier's 'Pirates!' reached its creative peak, however, on the Amiga, where its sumptuous graphics and full stereo soundtrack - featuring a marvelous pirate soundtrack by Jeff Briggs - weren't surpassed on the PC for almost a decade.

'Pirates!' is even a real-time war game - several years before these surged in popularity - as you maneuver your scurvy dogs over grassland, hills, and even swamps to approach walled towns, fighting everyone from townspeople armed with farm implements to elite Spanish pikemen and cavalry.

To this day, 'Pirates!' is unique in offering the right balance of real-time and turn-based gaming. If you are into resource management, you can handle your ship's inventories and pore over virtual charts at leisure before leaving port, but once the anchor is raised, the game keeps moving as you meet one adventure after another.

And it’s now time (11/22) to bring this pioneering action-adventure game into the 21st century! An entirely new game engine will deliver updated gameplay, stunning new features, spectacular 3D graphics and enhanced sound effects, so players can fully experience the intrigue, adventure and danger of life as a pirate on the Spanish Main. In 'Pirates!' you take the leading role of a Pirate Captain in the 17th century Caribbean amassing fortune and fame in an attempt to seize your rightful place as one of the most revered (and feared!) pirates in history!

Experience an all-new story built upon the most fun and compelling features of the original 'Pirates!' game;
