Naval Action

developed by Game-Labs  |  Platform: Windows

An open world multiplayer sailing sandbox.  You can explore the Caribbean which has been recreated with all the various ports, but battles are instanced in order to support up to 50 players at a time.  It seems to have a lot of naval realism, so if you’re in to realistic sailing physics this might be right up your alley.

Realistic sailing – Advanced wind and physics model provides for realistic portrayal of ship’s performance in the age of sail. Yard angles, ship angle to wind, fittings and ship condition affects speeds and turning rates. Correct tacking, boxhauling, clubhauling and other elements of the age of sail sailing are possible. Hidden ship characteristics will allow to gradually uncover potential of the vessel – every ship in game will be unique.”

“Historical gunnery – Realistic ballistics and cannon performance of the period. Every cannonball is tracked in the air and after it hits the target. One shot can hit the stern, damage the rudder, then hit the cannon carriage, injure crew, ricochet from the floor and hit the opposite side. Listing and wind affects the shooting distance and will require change of tactics.”
