Gamers, get ready to trade in your fishing rods for a captain’s hat. Misc Games has announced the upcoming release of its new simulator, Ships At Sea.
This highly anticipated sequel to the Fishing: Barents Sea and Fishing: North Atlantic releases promises to pull players in with a more realistic experience on the high seas.
Ships At Sea will introduce numerous new and expanded features, as well as brand-new gameplay mechanics. And, after much anticipation, it will finally feature a multiplayer mode. With these new additions, players can expect to explore the beauty of the Lofoten region like never before.
Ships At Sea Release Date and Gameplay
The immersive world of Ships At Sea promises excitement and adventure, whether you’re an experienced captain or new to navigating the seas.
The good news for eager gamers is that they won’t have to wait too long to play it. Early Access for the game will launch in 2024.
Ships At Sea takes place in the stunning Norwegian archipelago and ocean, providing players with a range of intricately designed service and cargo ships, as well as innovative fishing techniques like jigging.
There’s also an entirely new economic system that will allow you to manage your career by engaging in a variety of businesses.
Invite up to four friends on a multiplayer voyage through the world of Ships At Sea. Together, you can share resources, repair and maintain boats, upgrade ships, purchase tools, equipment, and essential supplies for yourself and your crew from the store, refuel at fuel stations, and even conquer turbulent waters.
With a broad range of skill levels available, you can build and enhance your abilities through rewarding gameplay.
Being able to deliver goods and materials at optimal efficiency would be awesome for skippers on cargo ships.
If you’re looking to improve your engineering prowess, the opportunity to get hands-on experience in performing mechanical work awaits those willing to captain service ships.
Key Features of Ships At Sea:
The integration of NVIDIA’s latest “WaveWorks” water shader has resulted in a spectacular sea simulation that makes for a truly immersive water world.
