Gaming reviews for the games I am playing.
I give is a Raging 6. Why Its still got some problems
You need to play on Official servers the maps are so large that if you tried to rent a server for this game it would cost you about 15k
PVP Is a toxic mess
PVE lacking players
PVP needs 10 or more players to keep you base and everything you have worked hours for more then a day or 2
I love this game it had a rough start as do most games. a massively multiplayer first-and-third-person fantasy pirate adventure, now also supporting offline singleplayer and non-dedicated private session modes on the same huge world! ATLAS hosts up to 40,000 players exploring the same Globe simultaneously, with an unprecedented scale of cooperation and conflict! Stake your claim in this endless open world as you conquer territory, construct ships, search for buried treasure, assemble forts, plunder settlements and hire crew to join your powerful growing armada. Start small then expand your spheres of influence from a small island, up to an unstoppable pirate empire that spans across the oceans. Wage battle against enemy fleets as you singlehandedly command large ships of war using the captaining system (or divide up to the responsibilities among your trusted lieutenants), or take control of any weapon directly with your own character. Dive deep into the briny water to explore permanent sunken wrecks and recover salvage, unearth the loot from procedurally-generated Treasure Maps and challenge zones, or complete challenging main questlines. Team up with other aspiring adventurers and sail into the vast ocean to discover new lands rich with region-specific elements, tame exotic natural and mythical creatures, raid forgotten tombs, confront powerful ancient gods and even build and administer your own colonies, cities, and civilizations to dominate the ATLAS in this ultimate quest for fortune and glory!
MMO On the Grandest Scale, Plus Singleplayer and Non-Dedicated Private Sessions!
Physically sail in real-time across the vast oceans with the proprietary server network technology, also playable in singleplayer offline mode, as well as player-hosted non-dedicated multiplayer session modes. Explorers will voyage to over 700 unique landmasses across 45,000 square kilometers, with thousands of Discovery Zones, and ten distinct world regions each having their own unique resources, creatures, secrets, and environment hazards! There is a separate PvE ATLAS for players who don’t wish to play any PVP.
Construct the Ship of Your Dreams, Plank by Plank!
Build drydocks and start with a dinghy rowboat, basic raft, tiny sloop or nimble schooner, moving on up to your own versatile brigantine or titanic galleon capable of transporting hundreds of crew and extensive cargo. Name your ship in big bold letters, paint and copy your own pirate flag and custom-place all the pieces of your ship — which sails and where, planks and gunports, every single structure piece has a physical Weight and Material — to function exactly how you want.
Captain your Crew!
Recruit real players and AI crew from freeports or rescue seasoned crew from destroyed “Army of the Damned” shipwrecks to man distinct stations on your boat! Set sail and explore the ATLAS with them to gain experience and level up their stats or gear, as well as levelling your Ship. Your crew are versatile! Whether on land, or ship, or even riding behind your animal companions on emplacements, they can man weapons of all kinds– cannons, swivel guns, siege engines, turrets, and even gigantic mortars, many with dynamically swappable ammo types including grapeshot, chainshot, spikeshot, liquid fire, and more! Instruct them to board enemy ships and help you conquer the seas! Keep their stomachs full and their pockets full of gold lest you want a mutiny in your hands! Take on the Captain’s Wheel or divide up the command responsibilities via Lieutenant Podiums to direct the Ship’s assignable weapon systems, sails, and stations, including standing-orders or manual grouped fire. Or, walk up to any station and take control of it yourself!
The Black Death
Mixed review on steam
I give this a Raging 7 Why Its good concept
Still early access it a good game.
Have a hard time finding a place to build in the open world map.
Lack of players.
A catastrophic plague has left a trail of destruction across 14th century Europe. Survivors confront sickness and scarce resources in a land rife with banditry.
To survive you will need to fight for scarce resources including food and learning new crafting techniques will certainly improve your chances. But in the desperate times, you will need to defend yourself in a land full of bandits looking to profit at your expense and at all times you MUST avoid the plague
Conditions are harsh, times are dark – this is the land of ‘The Black Death’.
A GRITTY MEDIEVAL MULTIPLAYER WORLD
Embark on a journey through a dark and gritty open-world depiction of a plague-infested Medieval Europe. Team up with other players and work together to prosper and survive or enforce a world where the sly, the strongest, meanest take everything by force. But be careful who you trust…
A LAND RAVAGED BY PLAGUE
Was it God or was it the devil himself that despatched this evil plague on Europe’s population? No one knows for sure, but everyone knows that it will kill.
Watch as the plague slowly rolls across the towns and countryside with the world event system, do you avoid the plague or attempt to combat it and prevent it spreading? If you find yourself in a plague area too long or are in contact with a plague victim, it is only a matter of time until you will succumb.
FORGE YOUR OWN PATH
Take advantage of different realistic medieval professions: Crafting fine armors to protect yourself from deadly raiders as a Blacksmith, taming animals and farming the land as a Peasant, tricking players with counterfeit goods as a Bandit, and much, much more.
