Man O’ War: Corsair Receives Official Launch Trailer and Exits Early Access Later this Month
Evil Twin Artworks announced that the Warhammer-theme game, Man O’ War: Corsair, will exit early access on April 19 and become a full fledged title on PC.
The game first showed up on the early access platform in April of 2016 to get feedback on the game. However, Director at Evil Twin Artworks James Carroll comments on why the game was on the platform for so long saying, “We suspected we might end up doing more than that but our fantastic community has been so passionate and supportive, that we now have a much deeper and more engaging game than we ever envisaged.”
The publisher details the early access progression:
Man O’ War: Corsair now features explorable ports, new races and factions, additional gameplay modes, horrifying sea monsters and more epic battles than ever before! It’s a shining example of how a title should come through Early Access and blossom into a full gaming experience.
James explains further: “When developers approach Early Access the right way, it can prove a wonderful collaboration that involves your most passionate fans without having to compromise your original development vision. We’re really glad we trusted our guts (and our community!) and took that route.”
Here is the game’s premise explained by the publisher:
