Titanic: Honor and Glory Developers Form New Theory on the Sinking While Researching for the Game

on January 1, 2016 3:21 PM

The developers of the upcoming historical game Titanic: Honor and Glory have been doing a massive amount of research to bring the most accurate reproduction of the most famous sinking of the history of seafaring, and apparently that research brought them to do some rather interesting findings.

Yesterday, they posted a mini-documentary explaining a new theory on the dynamic of the sinking of the Titanic based on those findings, mostly disputing the theory that the lookouts were the first to spot the iceberg, and that the engines were reversed full ahead to full astern before the crash, creating turbulence around the rudder and impairing the massive ship’s ability to turn.

While we don’t know whether this theory is accurate or not, it’s definitely interesting to see the amount of attention to detail put in the creation of this game. You can check out the video below.
