There are a lot of great pirate games in the industry, including Sea of Thieves or ATLAS. However, to see a pirate battle royale game is very rare, and Blazing Sails are no doubt the most gorgeous one among them.

The developer GET UP GAMES is very proud to announce that they'll self-publish their vibrant pirate battle royale game. And below is the trailer to celebrate this announcement, which you can have a look at the unique naval battles:

Overview on Blazing Sails

As the nature of a battle royale game, Blazing Sails doesn't have a very intriguing narrative. It's just you, your crew members and your ship, trying to become the most notorious pirates on the sea! However, Blazing Sails has a completely fresh take on the genre, bringing naval fights into the battlegrounds, and a new win condition as well.

To be more specific, you and your team won't be eliminated if you run out of HP. In fact, you'll keep respawning after your HP reaches zero, and you can return to the battles at any time. You'll only stop your adventure when your ship is completely devastated and sink, so try your best to protect your ship while shooting theirs down.

The combats and looting

You can't be a captain without your crew members! The fights between ships are very intense, which requires certain strategies and tight team play. For example, the captain will have to drive the ship to a suitable position for the members to open their fires, and other members will also have to fill the holes created your enemies' cannons.
