Maelstrom Overview

Grim fantasy combined with thunderous naval combat in a vibrant, monster-saturated world! Maelstrom is a third-person strategy game with a focus on multiplayer, fast-paced action, ship-vs-ship tactical combat, in-depth customization and progression.

Every player in Maelstrom commands their own customized warship with a handpicked captain, crew and equipment offering a range of special advantages. From fast Orc raiders focused on ramming and boarding to mighty Human battleships decked out with cannons and armor for a long ranged brawl, there are extensive choices to be made even before a ship hits the water.

With wind in the sails (or stoked boilers if piloting a Dwarven steamship) it's a battle to the depths, where the last ship sailing claims victory and a wealth of upgrades. Mind the cannon’s firing angles, keep the ships strongest armor towards the enemy, and avoid (or utilize) the numerous dangers of the sea; especially the enormous leviathans lurking the waters.

  • Fast-paced action | Use cannons, ramming and boarding to sink enemies and avoid becoming fish food for sea monsters!
  • Build legendary warships | A deep level of progression and customization. numerous captains, mates and upgrades create unique combat styles.
  • What’s yours is mine | : Power up your ships with rewards earned by collecting loot from sunken foes.
  • Solo and multiplayer | AI captains are ruthless opponents that offer no quarter.
