Niet zomaar een pirate-themed RPG, het komt van de makers van Mount&Blade!
News: Snowbird Game Studios, developers of Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword, have announced Caribbean â€“ a pirate-themed RPG thatâ€™ll be built using the same engine.http://beefjack.com/files/2012/07/carib ... header.jpg
The Mount & Blade series is a hard game to sell â€“ itâ€™s a bit of an ugly ducking, both in terms of presentation and its clunky and unnatural controls. Once you get to grips with it, though, thereâ€™s a rich game to be had, allowing you to charge recklessly into battle swinging your broadsword and dying without even realising whatâ€™s happened. That was my experience, anyway.
Now, the developer behind Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword, Snowbird Game Studios, is developing Caribbean, a game which takes the seriesâ€™ unique charm (if thatâ€™s what you want to call it) and puts it into the world of pirates in the 17th Century, offering a robust sea battle system on top of the grounded combat and sandbox-ish RPG gameplay. They wonâ€™t be developing it alone, as the creators of the entire Mount & Blade series TaleWorlds Entertainment will also be chipping in. Full features include:
Sea battles with intuitive and easy control system;
The real-time boarding fights that throw player in the centre of the action;
Detailed management and customization of both the fleet and the crew;
Complex siege system allowing the players to storm forts, harbors or entire cities;
Different kinds of artillery: shipboard cannons, mortars and howitzers;
Random events system that keeps players question their decisions during their voyage;
True â€˜Carribeanâ€™ atmosphere of the vast and dangerous world;
Unique NPCs whose design based on the real historical figures;
Various multiplayer modes featuring the sea and land battles, boarding and sieges.
You wonâ€™t be waiting long to get your hands on it, either, as a tentative release date of Autumn 2012 is currently set.
Klinkt veelbelovend! Maar als je Mount&Blade niks vond, ga je hier waarschijnlijk ook niet veel aan vinden
