Privateer logo

Privateer is expansion for the hit naval strategy title East India Company. East India Company: Privateer introduces players to a dark and mysterious world with allegiances only to fortune and a thirst for destruction.

Privateer shot 1

Privateer enables whole new angle to this successful game: Players operate their own fleets commanded by merchant or privateer captains. Having limited time at their disposal, players try to accumulate as much wealth as possible by any means they can.

Privateer is much more mission oriented than the original game, giving completely new playing experience within the familiar setting. As an "entrepeneur" without allegiances, player is free to engage in missions like smuggling, blockading ports and hunting down ships with diplomatic envoys.



Privateer is available for purchase via all major digital download portals. Privateer is an add-on to East India Company and requires the original game to be able to play.
