Tempest, open-world pirate RPG, releases on August 22nd

Publisher HeroCraft and developer Lion’s Shade have announced that after eight months of adding an array of content updates, refinements and improvements, Tempest, their Open World pirate RPG will be receiving its full release on PC and Mac on August 22nd priced at $14.99/€14.99/£10.99.

As the press release reads, Tempest is set across three vast open world regions, and will focus primarily on the most exciting elements of being a pirate – captaining your own ship and engaging in intense sea battles. Players will be able to create, customise and upgrade their sea vessel and take to the open seas to plunder treasure-laden merchant ships, go cannon-to-cannon with enemy galleons, and storm land based fortresses with your crew.

“As you navigate the deep and dangerous oceans of Tempest, the earthly challenges of heavily defended merchant vessels and rival pirates are not all that you will be faced with. Sinister disciples of a mysterious cult and fearsome mythical creatures including the infamous Kraken and monstrous Leviathan will provide completely different challenges on your travels across the oceans.”
