Pirate RPG King of Seas got its reveal yesterday and will come out this Fall. The piracy game will sail the high seas through all major platforms, including the Switch.
According to dev 3DClouds, King of Seas is their “most ambitious project to date.” The game, much like many modern titles, have a Zelda-esque vibe to it. Subsequently, the art is not only beautiful, but the announcement trailer shows as much.
3DClouds looks to expand on the pirate genre
Piracy and naval warfare games have propped up a ton over the last few years. Devs gained confidence with the genre through the success of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Above all, naval games have become better than ever as technology improves.
According to a press release, 3DClouds wants players to enjoy the genre even further. They want to “set sail on a deadly adventure set in the golden age of pirates.”
“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,” said 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.”
KoS will have decisions and consequences show in its world
There is sparse detail about King of Seas so far. However, the game’s description is one thing to consider. “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,” says the description. “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.”
From what is available on the trailer, it seems the game is a reactive world. The “game feel” for the title seems to revolve around a robust and colorful world full of adventures.
Every decision will likely have its consequences on the environment. Furthermore, this can be a superb source of adventure, action, and lore. King of Seas does not have an official release date as of yet.
