The pirate battle royale game Blazing Sails has picked up a publishing deal with Iceberg Interactive and it will be arriving on Steam in the first quarter of 2020.

There was a slew of announcements coming out of Iceberg Ahead, a broadcast event for game publisher Iceberg Interactive somewhat in the vein of Nintendo Directs. One of the many new announcements was that they'll be publishing Blazing Sails, a pirate battle royale game that looks like an awful lot of fun. We also got an announcement trailer revealed via a news post on the game's Steam Community page.

All About Blazing Sails' Battle Royale

Developer Get Up Games could have probably stuck a couple dozen players on islands with muskets and called it good, but they've decided to go the extra mile for their pirate battle royale. Let's go ahead and get the big question out of the way: can you command pirate ships in the game? In a word: yes.

Players will be able to load onboard pirate ships and take to the high seas, firing broadsides at enemy ships in the hopes of sinking them.  Of course, ships need ammo to fire, and that's why you'll take the time to drop anchor and arrive on land in search of supplies, weapons, and treasure. Whether it's with massive cannons or handheld weapons, you'll be doing everything you can to sink enemy ships!

Whether a ship goes down or you meet the enemy on land, you'll also have plenty of fighting to do on foot. Crack a baddie over the head with an oar or load up a flintlock pistol and blast him with a barrelful of powder and shot!

You'll be able to play Blazing Sails when it launches sometime in the first quarter of 2020. No price has been announced. In the meantime, you can add it to your wishlist on Steam and check out the game's announcement trailer below.
