King of Seas, an action RPG with naval and pirate battles, will launch in May on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC, delaying a few months to improve quality.
There are several titles that play with the fantasy of being a pirate, sailing through crystal clear seas and sinking and looting other ships. Starting in May, we can live the maritime experience with King of Seas, a naval battle game with RPG elements that will be released on all platforms (PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam).
It was originally scheduled to launch on February 18, but has been delayed to May. The reason is that the developer, 3DClouds, has partnered with the publisher Team17. Thanks to this, they will improve the quality of the gameplay, in addition to offering translation into other languages (including Spanish).
King of Seas is set in a world procedurally generated that changes with each game, which makes exploration more interesting. Atmospheric effects, such as storms, affect navigation, while we look for the next combat, with more than 20 skills for our ship.
Our success will be measured in the loot we obtain after each battle, and there will be various endings depending on the difficulty in which we play. In addition, there will be several secondary missions that we can do, such as conquering settlements that increase our reputation as a pirate, and submerged treasures that we can search if we get the maps. Finally, there seems to be a system of ranking in which we can compare our loot … with the most famous pirates in history.
What do you think of the idea? Without a doubt, the closest thing currently to King of Seas is Sea of Thieves, although this new one has a much smaller scale, of course. Ubisoft is also planning something similar with Skull & Bones, inspired by the naval battles of Assassin’s Creed IV … although its development is being very complicated, and it seems that recently it was completely rebooted.
