Wind Flurries: Virtual Skipper 5


Right, hands up who is a Virtual Skipper addict. Come on, there must be some of you out there, as Ascaron send word that they're releasing the fifth iteration in the series in the UK on 3rd of October, and it's already available in North America.

A sophisticated wave animation model replicates tidal movement and wind flurries, forcing players to adapt whilst racing. Other variables include day and night settings that affect climatic conditions and visibility, all helping to reproduce a realistic sailing environment.

Sounds posh, if you're into virtual sailing. I was always more a Ship Simulator guy. Yes.
