High Seas Sandbox Action Game ‘Windward’ Coming to PC, Mac and Linux!

I remember playing Sid Meier’s Pirates! for the first time – I had missed the 1987 game but fell in love with the 2004 release, playing it on every platform since. Now a new sandbox action Windward is coming to Steam Early Access with plans for a Q2 2015 release on PC, Mac, and Linux! Ship’s Ahoy, indeed!


Windward places gamers at the helm of a ship sailing the seas of a large procedurally-generated world. The title’s open-ended gameplay offers players a range of options, from engaging in high-adrenaline combat as a pirate in cooperative multiplayer to exploring uncharted lands.

Some of the features include:

  • Open World to explore
  • Sandbox gameplay with destructible environments
  • Co-op multiplayer
  • Intense real-time combat
  • RPG-like progression
  • Tranquil ports to stop and enjoy

Head to Steam to grab it on Early Access now!
