Description
Release date: End of 2014
Naval action - open world multiplayer sandbox

Naval Action is an exciting, realistic, and beautifully detailed naval combat game immersing players into the experience of the most beautiful period of naval history - when sailing ships ruled the seas.

Long term features:

Beautiful ships – Accurate hull models, sail plans, guns, internal modules and parts, historical speed, turning and heel performance. Ships from trading ships and smugglers to small gunboats to large 100+ gun first rates will allow the player to experience every possible role of the Age of Sail period.

Realistic sailing – Advanced wind and physics model provides for realistic portrayal of ship’s performance in the age of sail. Yard angles, ship angle to wind, cargo, fittings and ship condition affects speeds and turning rates. Correct tacking, boxhauling, clubhauling and other elements of the age of sail sailing are possible. Hidden ship characteristics will allow to gradually uncover potential of the vessel – every ship in game will be unique.

Historical gunnery – Realistic ballistics and cannon performance of the period. Every cannonball is tracked in the air and after it hits the target. One shot can hit the stern, damage the rudder, then hit the cannon carriage, injure crew, ricochet from the floor and hit the opposite side. Listing and wind affects the shooting distance and will require change of tactics.

Weapons: All major types of naval artillery are implemented: from long guns to carronades, and mortars (of course limited by the ship role and its hull). Fort and land batteries will provide support during port battles. Fire ships and branders will also be present in the game.

Damage model: Leaks, splinters, loose cannons, demasting, raking, fires and all other hazards possible in that era. Damaged ship fittings and modules will change behavior of the ship.

No levels or classes: You determine what you will become. Player will get naval ranks and court titles though that will determine his/her income, admiralty or national benefits.

Community driven development. Players actively participate in development and some of your ideas have already been implemented. Content is immediately given out to players for testing and improvement. Share your thoughts in comments or on the forum http://forum.game-labs.net/index.php?/forum/1-naval-action-english-language

Everytime I see this game on twitch, and am reminded that I missed the preorder date by a day, I die a little inside :(
Really looking forward to getting my hands on this, just wish I had a better idea of when that would be :(
