Publisher Gaijin Entertainment and developer Three Whales Studio have announced Age of Water, an online adventure game set in a post-apocalyptic water world. It will launch for PC via the Gaijin.net platform. Alpha test sign-ups are available now via the official website.
“We believe that the bright visual style of Age of Water as well as its unusual setting and high level of freedom will appeal to the players that like exploring new worlds,” said Age of Water producer Yuri Miroshnikov in a press release.
Here is an overview of the game, via Gaijin Entertainment:
Age of Water tells the story of a distant future when the Earth has been transformed into an ocean world. Residents live in cities built upon whatever urban structures remain above the water’s surface including skyscraper rooftops and giant statues. Take control of a motorboat and travel between settlements, fighting pirates, excavating the remnants of a lost civilization from the depths of the ocean and transport valuable goods whilst discovering whether the mythical land still exists.
In Age of Water players will need to complete quests in solo or with friends, fight against AI-controlled enemies, gather valuable resources, profit from price differences between settlements and freely explore the high seas of the open world. Between adventures, they can upgrade their boats or build new ones from available hulls and components. For example, they can construct an armoured deckhouse and fill the deck with high-calibre machine gun turrets.
