Windward is High Seas Sandbox Action Coming to PC, Mac, Linux

Developer Tasharen Entertainment announced that high-seas sandbox action title, Windward, is headed to PC, Mac and Linux.

Windward places gamers at the helm of a ship sailing the seas of a large procedurally-generated world. The title’s open ended gameplay offers players a range of options, from engaging in high-adrenaline combat as a pirate in cooperative multiplayer to exploring uncharted lands.

Features

  • Large procedurally generated worlds for a unique experience every new campaign.
  • Play with your friends via full cross-platform multiplayer! Bring your ship into your friends’ worlds, or have them join yours.
  • Play as much or as little as you like. The game saves your progress on the spot — no need to save manually.
  • Play it how you want: relax and immerse yourself doing trading and questing, or venture forth into pirate-infested lands for some high-adrenaline naval combat.
  • Unlock new ships, find upgrades, recruit allies, fund new towns, build coastal defenses, even bribe pirates to join your cause!
  • Extensive talent tree with role-specific specializations.
  • Customize your ship to make it look how you want. Pink hull with black sails? Sure, why not!
  • Procedural itemization system where higher difficulty automatically means better rewards.

 Here is the Steam release trailer:

Windward will release 2Q 2015 for PC, Mac and Linux.
