Naval Action heads into early access on January 21st

    
23

Right now the Age of Sail title Naval Action is prepping the release of its early access version on January 21st. This means that if you haven’t gotten the game yet, you can snag it this Thursday when it becomes available to buy on Steam.

Current owners of the game, however, are invited to participate in Naval Action’s head start, which begins today. There was a wipe from the previous round of testing, but a two day jump on the rest of the crowd is nothing to sneeze at, right?

The devs acknowledged that these dates are always subject to change: “We know that most plans don’t survive when the meet reality. We do not discount the possibility that something might change. The riskiest date is the release date itself. If Valve is slow the date will be moved forward.”

damn $40 is rough, but I’ve had my eye on this one for over a year when I realized I was too late to get into the previous round. Really want to see this but until I see some “let’s play” in depth $40 is too much… I am hopeful for the game tho, very much.

$40 is a lot to throw at an early access game. It looks fun, but not $40 fun.

Reesracer I did not know that thanks for the clarification :)  I thought they were trying to be a Michael Bay film with the title.  I feel better about it now.

GeneMartin2 Damonvile sounds like pirates of the burning sea (which i loved) – is it compareable?

Armsbend A “naval action” has been a term used commonly to describe any battle of significance involving ships during the Age of Sail (and even up to and including WWII). A battle between two frigates may have been referred to historically as a “single-ship action”, especially in the captain’s log book. 

It is understandably a bit obscure and esoteric, but actually accurate, given the mechanics of the game. I see your point, regardless. :)
