Indie development studio Fireblade Software has released a new update for its tactical sea combat game Abandon Ship. The Shattered Empire update introduces three new regions for players to explore.
The Shattered Empire update introduces the Howling Seas, Forsaken Seas and Shattered Empire regions to the game. Each region features a distinctive theme that makes them worthwhile to explore.
The update also contains a variety of new features, such as a ship compass to direct players to undiscovered points of interest, lighthouses to reveal the entire map view, and a new "Friends and Enemies" system that aims to make player choices more meaningful.
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.
