Ahoy Matey! So…Ye want t’ be a pirate aye? Now is your chance with Blackwake, a multiplayer team-based shooter that focuses on the joys of naval battles.

From capturing merchant vessels to setting crews on fire, players can sink fellow ships or just to enjoy the seas.

Set during the Age of Sail, Blackwake focuses largely on team based tactics and overall cooperation. Organizing a ship broadside, you can help assist your captain in navigating various weather conditions, or just being part of the gun crew.

Inspired by the Pirates of the Caribbean films, Pirate Ship Wars and Battlefield Pirates mod; Blackwake’s goal to make players feel like they are actually at sea and living on the vessel, by combining sailing with strategic gameplay.

The game will also feature team oriented sailing, melee and weapon combat, sea monster PVE and multiplayer battles.

Blackwake will release in early 2016.
