Pirate games are, sadly, not as plentiful as many of us would hope. Ubisoft kick-started something of a renaissance with Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, but it was to be short-lived, and Black Flag never got a proper sequel. Criminal, I say.
Well, there’s a new pirate-themed RPG coming to PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC later this year, and it’s King of Seas, an action role-playing game developed by 3DClouds.
King of Seas’ dynamic game world will react to your every action forcing you to evaluate your strategy at every turn and adapt to the new challenges facing you. Naval routes might change meaning you will need to look for new ways to conquer settlements or adverse weather conditions might require new, more dangerous routes to be navigated when heading to islands to trade goods or upgrade your ships. Engage with an intriguing cast of characters who may steer you towards hidden treasures or lead you into deadly traps as other pirates look to plunder your gold. One thing is for certain, there are adventures to be had and battles to fight as you shape your empire on the high seas.
“We are thrilled that after a year of hard work, we are finally ready to unveil King of Seas, our most ambitious project to date.” Commented Francesco Bruschi, Founder and CEO of 3DClouds. “We have poured all our creative talent into creating this stunning pirate world and can’t wait to share more with you in the coming weeks.”
3DClouds has sent over some assets, including screenshots and a teaser trailer. You can watch the short teaser up above, and catch the images down below. Looks quite pretty, doesn’t it?
