From the "we didn't see that one coming" files, we've learned that a new pirate-themed RPG has launched on early access on Steam. Called "Tempest", the game, according to developers, is focused on the best part of pirate life, namely sea battles. The game features ship customization from the color of the flag and sails, ship's hull, figurehead and more. And what pirate ship would be complete without a bristling arsenal of cannons, flame throwers, and mortars, to name a few?
Early Access version:
- Draw the world map
- Discover the first region of the Tempest world.
- Seafarer’s adventures
Buy ships, upgrade your ships, decorate your ships.
- Being a pirate: Marketer or Racketeer?
Buy something cheap and sell it at a higher price… This doesn’t sound like a pirate’s way. Plunder galleons, sink warships, destroy forts!
- Fight huge monsters
Kraken’s sea-friends are waiting for you!
- Powerful Artefacts
Use mystical crystals to escape the enemy’s cannonballs, bring down meteorites onto your opponent or call a huge octopus to your aid.
- Create a great crew of tough guys
Level up your pirates, let them grow from sailor boys to skilled old salts.
Full version will include:
- Multiplayer. Play alongside your friends or fight against each other (The multiplayer will be available in future updates).
- Three vast regions to discover.
So if ye've been lookin' fer a piratey adventure RPG fix, perhaps Tempest be worthy o'yer notice? YARR!
