What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Port Royale 4 is an upcoming simulation and strategy game for Windows PCs that lets players develop a merchant port during the golden age of pirates. Players take on the role of a governor and establish a Caribbean colony from one of four European nations, then set about building the settlement into a prosperous trading town by managing its physical growth and economy. Naval combat involves turn-based battles between ships, with some blood and death. Expect a small amount of language (such as "damn" and "bitch"), as well as references to tobacco and alcohol. The models and systems used in the game have a degree of historical accuracy, so players may come away with a slightly improved understanding of the conflicts, economy, and technological advances of the era.
