Caribbean! is a pirate-themed sandbox action RPG, transferring the players into areas of the Caribbean Sea and times of the golden era of piracy. It was developed by a Russian studio, Snowbird Game Studios, creators of Eador: Masters of the Broken World and an addition to the popular series of Mount & Blade entitled With Fire & Sword. The game uses the mechanics of that title, and the developers from the studio TaleWorlds, the creators of the original Mount & Blade, were invited to take part in the production process.
The player takes on the role of adventurer seeking fortune in the New World. When visiting other cities and villages expands its retinue of rządnych experience and gold mercenaries, gaining a new outfit, performs various orders, and occasionally meet up as a wandering merchant. You can join one of the five factions: English, French, Spanish, Dutch, and pirates. The latter is, however, no ordinary looters, but significant and united force, which should count as colonial powers. Like mentioned Mount & Blade, the game does not involve us in role limitations, offering in return complete freedom to explore and tasks undertaken. During the game, will visit the islands of the Caribbean, such as Jamaica, Cuba and Panama, as well as a fragment of the southern coast of North America.
As in any self-respecting pirate production, perhaps the most important thing is to build a strong fleet, which will give us an advantage in many sea battles. Its members can enter nine types of ships, divided into three main categories - frigates, galleons and battleships. The authors have created a whole management system and improve the ship, which can be equipped with different types of artillery. Painstakingly restored naval battles we are in real-time using a simple and intuitive interface. We can, for example, engage in a fierce exchange of fire, or to board an enemy ship and master of the sword in his hand and a loud roar.
The game will be the system's reputation. Depending on the decisions made, the player becomes a man of honor or fame untrustworthy unprincipled scoundrel. For example, if you get in the harbor message that one of our comrades disgraced daughter of a butcher, we can decide whether the guilty hang on rei - what gain fame ruthless but fair commander or turn a blind eye to the antics of our subordinates. This may, of course, to make us outsiders adversity, but on the other hand, provide us with loyalty and devotion to comrades. Caribbean also offers a dynamic system to generate the next quest, which depend on the reputation of that and a number of choices made during the game.
In terms of framing the game engine uses a souped up Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword. The authors have introduced a number of improvements, among others, increasing the number of polygons and improving the quality of the animation. Deserves recognition realistically recreated the appearance of the fractions, the clothing and weapons have been prepared on the basis of historical sources. Besides the possibility of playing alone, Carribean! also offers a wide range of multiplayer modes, filled with spectacular battles on land and sea.
