If the sea is calling to you yet you lack the bouyancy to be a truly successful marine conquerer, then it would probably be prudent to live out your dreams in the safety of your own home. Thankfully, we have Windward for that, a sandbox sailing game that works like a cross between Freelancer and Sid Meier’s Pirates!
Windward players can pick from one of four factions and set sail to battle pirates, explore the procedurally generated map, complete quests, and make a fortune from trading. There are options to play both solo and with others, and the team even added an option to play a game free from combat entirely.
The title has been in early access on Steam for quite some time but will be releasing on May 12th. It carries a price tag of $14.99.[Source: Steam]
