The vessels have been refueled, the cargo has been loaded and ambitious ship owners can hardly wait to finally cast off with TransOcean 2: Rivals. Developer Deck13 Hamburg and publisher astragon Entertainment are, therefore, more than happy to announce the official worldwide release date of the challenging economic strategy simulation TransOcean 2: Rivals will be available for PC and Mac starting May 11th, 2016! But that is not all: Cargo shipping fans can also look forward to the return of yet another popular gameplay feature.
Be it in the single player mode versus clever AI opponents or in the online multiplayer mode against up to seven real live rivals TransOcean 2 will offer economic challenges aplenty to virtual high sea logistics entrepreneurs.
Demanding tasks will however not only be encountered on the open seas: During manual docking and undocking in the single player mode of TransOcean 2: Rivals captains will once more be able to prove their skills at the helm! This mini game already popular with fans of the first part of the franchise occurs randomly whenever the tugboat crews decide to go on strike for better pay.
The player now has to decide: Will I wait for the end of the labor dispute or will it be better to try my own hand at entering and leaving the docking area? The ports specially designed for the mini game emphasize on variety in the optimal route planning and the skilled circumnavigation of obstacles. Next to the desire to avoid high repair costs by ensuring preferably accident-free arrivals and departures the player can look forward to a bonus multiplier on delivered wares for flawlessly executed dockings.
Well, then: Ship ahoy and may there always be a hand-span of water under the keel!
