The new owners of the piratical MMO Pirates of the Burning Sea keep on keeping on. The most recent newsletter out of Vision Online Games is talking up a variety of backend improvements and new installer features that should make playing the formerly sunsetted game better on a technical and visual level.
One of the first updates is the release of a new installer and launcher, meaning players will no longer need to use BitRaider to keep the game updated. The new installer is available on the game’s official site. Of course, there are more things going on with the update, such as updates of the game’s shaders to the latest version of DirectX 9, a host of bug fixes, and promise of “many, many behind-the-scenes fixes” that should make the game much more stable as well as lay the groundwork for future content changes and performance upgrades.
To celebrate the new version of PotBS, players can enjoy a 20% sale on Burning Sea Notes between now and January 7th. As for the latest update, the patch notes are currently available to those in the game’s Discord server, since the forums have since been archived.
