Don’t Hit the Icebergs in Iceberg Interactive’s Blazing Sails!
During the first-ever Iceberg Ahead event, held in Paris by Iceberg Interactive, the company announced an upcoming pirate-themed battle royale game called Blazing Sails. Blazing Sails has actually been in development for a while now from Belgian studio Get Up Games and this announcement apparently indicates Iceberg Interactive has published the title. The expected early access release date for Blazing Sails is early 2020 with a likely release several months after early access begins. Iceberg Interactive announced several other titles at the Iceberg Ahead event with announcements coming back to back similar to the Nintendo Direct style.
Little is known about Blazing Sails so far other than gamers will be able to customize their own character and ship, with them being able to work together with other players to actually crew the vessel, taking the fight to other pirates sailing the seven seas. The whole game is based around being fast and easy, letting people jump in and fight to become the true pirate king. We aren’t sure how this works with vessels full of pirates but we presume that either groups can win or that the final battle comes down to a ship of pirates competing for the best of the best.
Iceberg Interactive also announced Railroad Corporation which is a railroad management sim title set during the golden age of steam and growth of the railroads. Pax Nova is a space-based strategy game published by Iceberg Interactive which will launch out of early access in early 2020. Headsnatchers is another title the publisher announced will be launching out of early access and also releasing on the Nintendo Switch. Transient is a horror title developed by Stormling Studios that features a Lovecraftian horror theme which will release in late 2020.
