Gaijin Entertainment in partnership with The Three Whales Studio has announced Age of Water, which is a post-apocalyptic title where Earth has been transformed into an ocean world. Set in the distant future, residents of this strange world live upon urban structures that have been built above the water's surface, which includes skyscraper rooftops and giant statues. Players will be able to take command of a motorboat and travel between different settlements as well as fight pirates. They will also be able to sift through the lost civilization that came before while also searching to see if the mythical land still exists.
“We believe that the bright visual style of Age of Water as well as it’s unusual setting and high level of freedom will appeal to the players that like exploring new worlds”, explains Yuri Miroshnikov, the producer of Age of Water.
Players will need to complete quests solo or with their friends while fighting against AI-controlled enemies. Valuable resources can also be gathered. Players can then profit from price differences between settlements and "freely explore" the seas of the open world that's available. Between sailing and adventures, players can upgrade their boats and/or build new ones out of available hulls and components. For example, a player "can construct an armored deckhouse and fill the deck with high-caliber machine gun turrets."
