Soaring Pixels Games has revealed Breakwaters, a new survival game where you can manipulate water and fight titans. You won't have to wait too long to play it, either — it's coming to PC this year and PlayStation and Xbox at a later date.

Breakwaters is the product of an enormously successful Kickstarter and it has a lot in common with a number of survival games already on the market. It features a tropical theme, the ability to construct buildings, and vehicles such as boats and a glider. Where this upcoming game stands out, however, is its phenomenal water mechanics. Check out the Breakwaters trailer to see it in action!

As you can see from the above trailer, water in the game moves pretty realistically. That alone is a nice feature, but it's actually an integral mechanic for this game. You'll be able to great a variety of magical devices to literally push the ocean out of the way, revealing underground ruins and treasures that you can explore at your leisure.

It might look like a cute, casual adventure, but don't be fooled — there are definitely enemies in this world. You'll have to fight smaller creatures such as slimes on land, but that's the easy part. The real trouble is when one of the titans comes calling; these massive creatures tower over you and can shake an entire forest to pieces with one of their massive energy beams.

 
 

All in all, Soaring Pixels Games' inaugural Steam release looks pretty promising. The best thing of all, however, is that you won't have to wait too long to play it — it should be arriving on Steam Early Access in the next few months.

When is the Breakwaters Release Date?

The Breakwaters release date is expected to be sometime in Q3 2021 on Steam Early Access. Once the game has been out for some time, it will arrive on PlayStation, Xbox, and perhaps other PC storefronts and consoles depending on the developer.

For now, you can learn more about this game by checking out its official website. You can also add Breakwaters to your wishlist on Steam.
