    Naval Action

    Sorry if this has been mentioned somewhere before.

    I stumbled over some SideStrafe videos of Naval Action, a multiplayer warship game. Unusually, the ships are from the age of sail, so it gets pretty meditative, maneuvering with the wind and trying to get into position to fire broadsides.
    It's in alpha and it's been greenlit on Steam.

    At 40$ it's not something I can afford, but it looks rather nice.



    (You can only add one video to a post now?)

    Tim Stone tried it in the most recent flare path.

    I am excited by the ideal of honest sailing controls in a large open world (all the sailing games where the ship magically moves wherever you point it annoy me). The combat is less interesting, but I will probably try it out at some point. Not soon, though, because I don't have a Microsoft enabled system.

    ah, I had somehow missed that. Thanks.

    yeah, it looks pretty solid, without being insanely complicated to learn. The audio seems great too and really adds to the feel of sailing (judging from the videos).

    This looks quite interesting, actually. A proper sailing sim. I`ll be following this one.

    This looks awesome and you can color me excited. Having said that I'm a bit confused about the monetization because the pre-order page states the following:

    Pre order pack is priced at $39.99 and includes:

    • 1x digital copy of the game $29.99 value
    • 1x premium Yacht $20 value
    • Immediate to limited Sea Trials, where we will be testing combat and sailing characteristics in PvE and PvP combat.
    • Early access to the game and open world prototype testing as soon as it opens on Steam.
    • Additional bonuses that we will add as we expand content


    Why does a yacht cost $20? What will the other ships cost? Do we have to buy them or can we unlock them through playing? This is the kind of stuff I haven't been able to find.

    I would think it would be at least a couple million.

    It`s a Russian thing. Bling = good. Expensive bling = better.

    yeh, that's the sort of thing I would find okay in a free to play game (if done like World of Tanks, for example, where premium vehicles tend to be very average, so it's not pay to win), but when the base game isn't cheap either, I don't know.

    What will the other ships cost? Do we have to buy them or can we unlock them through playing? This is the kind of stuff I haven't been able to find.
    I understood from another video that you do unlock ships by gaining XP or some such, but I don't know where the premium vehicles fit in.
