Blackwake is a multiplayer fps naval game set in the 18th century. Set during the Age of Sail, Blackwake focuses largely on team based tactics and overall cooperation. Organizing a broadside, assisting your captain in navigating various weather conditions, or just being part of the gun crew - there are many roles to be filled in this shooter. Blackwake is match based, playing out in simple faction vs faction and/or objectives in a variety of game modes. Winning will require team work and planning. While the captain will be able to broadcast orders, the crew will still need to listen. Victory relies on the abilities of both captain and crew. Playable factions will include English, French, Spanish, Dutch & Pirates. Team orientated sailing Blackwake is a game with heavy focus on team cooperation and tactics. This includes gun control, navigation, overall combat strategy and planning. Ships are sailed with a captain and crew, hulls can be destroyed and ships can sink before you know it. Blackwake is not very forgiving to positioning mistakes leading to ship damage. While you can extract water and slow sinking, you cannot repair the ship. Intense melee and weapon combat The game will feature an assortment of 18th century firearms, each with their own strengths and flaws of the era. You can expect boarding to be a fun filled chaotic experience. Goal of Land/Sea simultaneous battles We're eager to add more to the game but we don't want to get ahead of ourselves. We're excited to try new things in the future to expand gameplay in a few areas. Objective based game modes This is where we hope to shine. We hope to not only provide a spiced up traditional team-deathmatch, but also have more scenarios to make you really feel like you're a part of something epic. Varied weather & Environments Each match on the open ocean randomizes the weather and time of day. From the calm seas of day to the chaotic storms at night where timing is everything. You can expect to get a lot of variety every time you play. Eventually we want the ability for weather/time of day to change mid-match.
