HeroCraft and developer Lion’s Shade announced today that after eight months of early access development, its Open World pirate RPG Tempest will be fully launched for the PC on 22nd August priced at $14.99/€14.99/£10.99.
Tempest features three vast open world regions for you to explore and plunder, captaining your own ship and engaging in intense sea battles - including some terrifying giant squids and other sea monsters that you may run into along the way. Create, customise and upgrade your sea vessel so you can plunder merchant ships, take the fight to other enemy galleons, and storm land based fortresses with your crew.
If you can complete enough quests you'll be able to level up your crew and hire new ones, making it easier to board and capture other vessels. Ships can then be armed with cannons, mortars and flamethrowers, along with powerful artefacts that can be discovered and used to escape the enemy’s cannonballs, bring down meteorites from the heavens on to your rivals or summon a giant octopus to your aid.
Tempest has been in early access since December 2015, although when the game launches on the 22nd August it will feature over 100 single-player quests, a multiplayer mode for three players in both co-op and PvP, and more.
Will you be plundering the seas in Tempest when itlater this month? Watch out for the Kraken and monstrous Leviathan, they're sure to cause you a few problems on your travels!
