Kalypso Media today released a tutorial video for Port Royale 3, currently in the works at Gaming Mind and scheduled to be available in North America on September 4th and in Europe on September 7h, 2012, for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. 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.
In Port Royale 3, 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. 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.
In addition to the single-player campaign there will be multiplayer modes where players can go head-to-head using commercial, economic and conquest simulations to allow for fast-paced gameplay.
