Blazing Sails Pirate Battle Royale Preview

Our Blazing Sails Pirate Battle Royale Preview investigates the Early Access version of the BR game. Iceberg Games released the Steam title on 9 September 2020 with the lobbies and servers slowly filling up over time. There’s no official release date for the full game as yet.

We’ve been trying to play the game for a few weeks now. We have been unsuccessful in finding a lobby that actually has players. Therefore, our review is based on the short experience we’ve had so far as well as watching Youtube gameplay videos.

Is the online multiplier game exciting? What features can you expect and what is the BR game’s price? Find out more in our Blazing Sails Pirate Battle Royale Preview.

Story

Blazing Sails Pirate Battle Royale Preview

The developers have no problem taking on other BR creators with their new title with their game introduction:

Tired of dropping out of the sky or building your own walls? Blazing Sails offers a dynamic mix of swashbuckling on dry land and naval combat against enemy crews!

For our Blazing Sails Pirate Battle Royale Preview, we wanted to see what all the hype was about, considering that we’ve played Fortnite and COD: Warzone. It consists of you and your motley crew taking your ship to the sees and blasting your foe to smithereens. Oh, and you’ll have to do this before the circle closes in and destroys you.

Before you enter a lobby, you can upgrade your ship or buy new items. There’s only an online multiplayer mode available, so don’t expect to practice against bots. There’s a short video tutorial, but nothing that teaches you how to play hands-on before hitting the seas.

Since we didn’t get to actually compete with others for our Blazing Sails Pirate Battle Royale Preview, we don’t have much to tell you about missions or how it is to interact with other players. There were no available games in the lobby when we tried to play, which doesn’t bode well for an early access game.


Gameplay

So for the gameplay component in our Blazing Sails Pirate Battle Royale Preview, we mostly had to watch how others played it online. You’ll need a full team of crewmates to survive the seas, as each crew member needs to deal with different tasks. One will steer the ship while the other man the deck.

Combat seems interesting and exciting. You can grab a canon and shoot ships from afar. If the enemy boards your ship, then you’ll need to fight them with your sword or pistol. In the end, there can only be one ship left standing.

Of course, you’ll have to stay in the playing area of the map as with all BR games. For our Blazing Sails Pirate Battle Royale Preview, this was an thrilling element, as it’s far harder to achieve with a massive ship than running around on a field with a gun. There are few places to hide.

Graphics

While the graphics are cartoonish, there are some stunning visuals we feel for our Blazing Sails Pirate Battle Royale Preview. The sun glinting off the ocean is superb, as are most of the water elements. Character movements looks slightly blocky, though, which detracts from the overall beauty in the game.

The user interface and HUD is kept clean and minimal, which is what we like. You have a weapon display at the button with crew and ship details at the top. There’s also a handy compass for those gamers that know how to use one.

Sound

Argh, and shiver me timbers. We had a good laugh at the narrator for our Blazing Sails Pirate Battle Royale Preview, attempting to speak in a pirate accent. If you listen to the tutorial long enough, then you can almost hear when he loses the accent for a moment before breaking back into it. It was a jovial moment that put a smile on our faces.

There’s exciting piratey music and the sound effects are great. We’re excited to see what other sound elements the developer will add in the Early Access.
