We’re starting to see an increase in pirate-themed material in the world of games, with titles like Lego Pirates of the Caribbean, Risen 2, and the Legend of Dead Kel DLC for Amalur. You can now add Raven’s Cry to that list, which just had a gameplay trailer released.
The game, published by Topware Interactive and developed by Octane games, aims to provide a brutal and uncompromising vision of the era where pillagers and scoundrels sailed sea. Realistic and cruel to the core, this is definitely not you average yo-ho-ho, jolly-roger pirate adventure. A story description is below:
“The dark, ominous objects were barely discernible against the angry Caribbean sea, but Christopher’s eyes were young and keen and spotted them with ease. As the ships drew closer the threat became clear. “Pirates!” Christopher’s father cried, but these were no common rovers. The impending doom creeping toward the misty isle of Inez Sound was none other than the Devil’s Tines, a notoriously bloodthirsty fleet of murderers, convicts and deserters. The pirates raised the lonely village, leaving only one alive- the boy Christopher Raven, who had been maimed and left with only one hand along with a burning hatred for the men responsible for slaying his kin.”
Check out the trailer below. The game comes out later this year for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
