This is a real-time tactical stealth game that promises to transport you to the golden age of piracy, which will be “focused on single-player gameplay.” You will have the chance to command your own crew of sea dogs, working to either gain notoriety as an elusive pirate-gentleman or become known as the bloody terror of the Caribbean.
“In Frigato, we combine the elements of pirate adventures, dark legends and rowdy humour into a unique whole. The game will loosely refer to the so-called golden age of piracy – the 17th and 18th century,” explains Mercat Games game designer Jakub Brzeziński. “Gameplay-wise, it should appeal to fans of games like Shadow Tactics, Desperados, Commandos, War Mongrels and Partisans 1941.”
Ultimate Games COO Rafał Jelonek adds: “Frigato will debut on PC, followed by Xbox and Nintendo Switch releases. Perhaps later it will also appear on PlayStation consoles. Importantly, soon everyone will be able to check the game for themselves thanks to the demo, featuring a long mission, which we will present during the Steam Next festival, starting June 13th this year.”
The publisher has outlined the game’s key features as below:
- real-time tactical stealth game;
- an intriguing world of pirate adventures and legends;
- many paths to success;
- high difficulty level;
