‘Pirates’ pic poised for vidgame play

Cyberbiz Brief

Disney Interactive will set sail with Bethesda Softworks, the company behind recent role-playing vid-game hit “The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.” They will publish a role-playing title based on the upcoming Disney movie “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.”

The role-playing vidgame will be developed for play on PCs as well as the Microsoft Xbox and Sony PlayStation 2 consoles. It will be set among buccaneers of the 17th century, allowing players to make their way through the world as either a law-abiding merchant seaman or lawless pirate, hiring crew, finding treasure and sailing ships.

The Disney movie, based on the long-running ride at Disneyland, is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. It stars Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush and Orlando Bloom, and is directed by Gore Verbinski (“The Ring”).

Disney Interactive also will have titles based on the upcoming Disney/Pixar “Finding Nemo” animated feature debuting May 5, as part of its three-picture deal with publisher THQ. The game will debut three weeks before the movie and will include a coupon for a free ticket to the movie inside each game.
