Are you looking for more pirate adventures? Since Black Flag and Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered, we’ve not really had that many swashbuckling adventures on PS4, but today marks a new release with HeroCraft’s successful open-world action RPG, Tempest, which is out today on PS4.
Originally released back in 2016 on Steam, Tempest has actually done alright for itself garnering mostly positive reviews from users. The developers have supported the game with numerous updates and DLC, and the PS4 edition will release with the Treasure Lands DLC as an added bonus.
It looks a little rough, I’ll give it that, but the general consensus is that it’s a decent pirate game in lieu of other options. It’s out today on the PlayStation Store, so check it out if you’re in the mood to ride the seven seas.
Tempest is a Pirate Open World Action RPG where you rove the seas across three continents filled with dozens of colonies and forts, hundreds of quests and countless ships to plunder. Customize your ship, trade, challenge fellow pirates and face terrible mythical monsters such as Kraken and Leviathan.
Tempest comes to the PlayStation 4 with the DLC Treasure Lands where you will be able to assault a fort, defend a village, wipe out the undead and explore an ancient city – and more!
