Indie game Abandon Ship gets new exploration gameplay video
Thursday 5 October 2017 - 12:21 BST

Indie game development studio Fireblade Software has released a new video of the upcoming tactical sea combat game Abandon Ship. The video focuses on exploration gameplay mechanics.

The new gameplay video features a first look at some of the exploration gameplay mechanics in the game, such as sea routes to move to other world areas and biomes that may affect your gameplay.
In Abandon Ship players take control of a ship and its crew as they explore a procedurally generated world, take on quests and deal with random, and sometimes life-threatening, events.

Players will end up engaging other ships in combat and they will have to employ their best tactics in order to out-manoeuvre and out-gun the enemy. The game focuses on bringing “Age of Sail” ships in a fantasy setting, framed in an art style inspired by classic Naval Oil Paintings.

The game offers more than just typical sea warfare as it contains tons of details that make for a unique gameplay experience.

Part of this is due to the game's procedurally generated worlds, but also due to the game's dynamic weather and water physics systems as well as various customization abilities that allow players to upgrade their captain, ship and crew.

Abandon Ship is also said to contain a unique twist on the typical "game over" scene as ship destruction is not the end of gameplay.

Players play as the captain, and as long as the captain is alive, their game will continue. By escaping to a lifeboat, or even being stranded, alone in the water, there is still a chance to survive and fight your way back to the top.

Abandon Ship is expected to launch later this year for PC.
