    Disney to make Pirates multiplayer online game

    Walt Disney Co. is planning to make its "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies into an online multiplayer game that it expects to release before the third film in the series comes out next summer, according to Friday news reports.

    "Pirates of the Caribbean Online" will be an original story set within the mythology of the film trilogy. There will be elements from "Dead Man's Chest" in the game, and Disney executives told news agencies that they hope to get the likenesses of all the principal film characters into the game, and discussions are under way to get key actors to provide voice acting.

    Disney Online Virtual Reality Studio vice president Mike Goslin told news agencies that he wanted to create this kind of a game based on the theme park ride even before the first film was released so successfully in 2003.

    The game will have an original villain named Jolly Roger, based on the pirate at the Disney theme park attraction who warns people to turn back before it takes them into the ride's subterranean world. Players will also interact with the films' villains, but the game will not track with the linear films because it is set in a parallel universe, according to reports.

    Any MMO going up against World of Warcraft is pretty much doomed.
