Are you ready to grab your crew and head into the mysterious, vast oceans that wait for one filthy crew to reign supreme? I’m sure you arrrrrrrrr!
Here’s a list of some frequently answered questions ahead of the King of Seas launch on May 25th.
Now, where’s the rum?
Location unknown; possibly with one of the lads.
What is King of Seas?
King of Seas is an Action Role-playing game set in a procedural pirate world.
In a ferocious plot, you will have to fight to regain what has been taken away: an epic adventure awaits you in a fantastic world, dotted with fights, lost islands and treasures; a universe full of amazing characters and breath-taking missions that will keep you anchored as you struggle to become the king of all pirates.
What’s the world like, mate?
It’s Dynamic! The world reacts to your every action, naval routes change — and with each conquered settlement the difficulty adapts to constantly give you a more challenging time. The worlds you explore are procedurally generated and constantly refresh the exploration mechanics within each new game.
Can you tell us how navigation works? I don’t want to get lost now, aye.
Sure. Atmospheric effects influence gameplay. For instance; if you sail during a storm – do it at your own risk, escape enemies you may encounter and always remember to carefully watch the wind direction to stay in control during battles. The strategy starts here. Appreciate and understand nature; it can be the devil if you don’t sail with it accordingly
Will there be any customisation?
Yes. There’s nothing quite like the appearance of power. There are five types of highly customizable ships through an equipment and skill system, just as in any true role-playing game!
I’m eager to sink some ships! Tell me what I need to know about the combat system?
Alright, just make sure you don’t sink your own. The combat focuses on cannon shots and nautical strategy, but also speed and spectacle, thanks to a set of more than 20 skills to choose from and three branches of talents to suit any playstyle!
Are they any more mechanics you can tell us about?
Aye! There’s a vast array of secondary mechanics too – including; Special Missions, Treasure hunt, Trading, Fishing and Ranking (leaderboards). We’ll tell you more about those later on ;).
