Yo ho ho...

King of Seas is an ARPG pirate game developed by 3DClouds and published by Team17 Digital. In it, you're trying to retake what has been taken from you, which is presumably your kingship. There's also a new demo that's just come out for prospective players to try, which will have pirates-to-be facing off against the pirates they'll meet in game. If you find yourself intrigued by all of this, be sure to check out the handy dandy trailer I've linked below:

To do a quick rundown, King of Seas is an isometric ARPG where you control a ship where you will feel compelled to yell "ARRR!" when you want to agree with someone (or fight them) and "AHOY THERE!" when you see someone. It doesn't matter if you saw them a few minutes or two weeks ago, you'll yell it in their face all the same. Why not? You're a pirate. You're supposed to be a jerk and burst people's eardrums.

AHOY THERE!

Besides that feisty nonsense, you'll navigate a procedurally generated world and will apparently react to your every action. Naval routes will change depending on y our actions. With each settlement you conquer the difficulty will also change to make the game more challenging, which is good. Some people like to streamroll, but personally I like becoming more powerful will still facing a challenge. Without it, games quickly become dull for me. 

There's also a thick fog to ensure it's not always smooth sailing, a navigation system that will influence gameplay, such as storms, wind direction, and actions taken during battle. You'll be able to customize your ship and choose from over 20 skills (along with three talent trees) to fit your playstyle.

King of Seas will be released on May 25, 2021 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Stay tuned to TechRaptor for more info.
