Sailing fans, rejoice! Virtual Skipper is back with great improvements and new features galore!
Virtual Skipper, the ultimate regatta simulator, puts you at the helm of the world's best sailboats in 12 different seascapes, which host the largest and most prestigious international competitions! Master direction, wind flurries and calms, and select the right sails according to the weather conditions, and show the competition you have what it takes to win your first regatta!
In this new edition, Nadéo has focused on making the game as immersive and captivating as possible and the result is simply astounding! With a view to create highly realistic ocean environments, they have devoted great energy and talent to ocean modelling, from the ocean itself, its movement, swells and fury, down to the coastlines and crystal-clear waters where the seafloor suddenly comes to life.
In Virtual Skipper 4, the action also takes place up in the sky. Nadéo has created fully animated, 3D volumetric clouds that filter the game's superb lighting effects and added real-time day and night cycles that enhance the high level of realism of Virtual Skipper 4. Players will embark seaward to extraordinary foreign climes!
In addition to the six existing seascapes (San Francisco, Auckland, Quiberon etc), the game now features six new locations where players can battle it out on the water in Single player or Multiplayer Mode: Marseilles, Valencia, Rio, Vancouver, Naples and Qingdao!
VSK fans will be thrilled by the game's tools and editors, like the Map Editor, with which they can create customized regattas in Nordic or tropical environments. The game also features a 3D model import functionality, long awaited by creative players who will be able to integrate their very own competition or leisure boats for a truly unique gaming experience!
