The folks at Flying Lab Studios are doing a lot of expanding lately! The company is adding more staff, and has also announced the first expansion for Pirates of the Burning Sea. The new expansion, "Power and Prestige", will allow players to take on the role of Port Governor, in what sounds like a bit of sim-style gaming, where players control the development of a port.
The expansion will be offered as a free download to all players and is set to release in Q2 2010. Until then, check out this interview over at ZAM for more details.
