    For those who may not venture over to Eurogamers much, we've got a bunch of keys to give away for the Pirates of the Burning Sea Open Beta!


    Eurogamer, Koch Media and Sony Online Entertainment are giving you the chance to set sail and join the Pirates of the Burning Sea beta test.

    Sail ships, blast cannon, swing from the main mast to board enemy ships, trade cargo in ports, dress to look the part and laugh with your friends as you drown yourself in rum.

    I'm guessing this isn't a 360 game. That's good.

    PC MMORPG. Early word is that it's a lot like EVE with a pirate paintjob.

    Think I'll try and bag one of these when I get home. Is there a whacky Kieth Richards-esque guy in it? That'd be mega funny! Maybe some skinny bint who looks like a boy too.

    That sounds terrific, but you can also get it elsewhere. Nick posted a link to fragzone in the other thread.

    Hoping to start this tomorrow with a friend.

    I've been itching for a new mmo, to the point where I was seriously considering going back to the WoW grind-a-thon. Hopefully this will be good enough to stop that from happening :p

    I can't extract the .cab files that the beta comes in. Winzip doesn't work. What program should I use?

    Haven't installed yet, but are you sure the cab files are supposed to be extracted? Maybe the installer uses them as is....

    No need to extract them, although remember the folder where you downloaded them to as my setup asked me a couple of times to "insert disk 0" and I needed to select that folder to move past it.

    The on-foot stuff is pretty bad, very clunky.

    The ship battles are strangely compelling though.

    The server is taking a huge beating, serious queues and lag. There is a new server opening soon, which should help.

    So far, not entirely convinced, but then I am not a huge fan of pirates anyway
