Salvo! Goes Gold
9:11 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Shrapnel Games has announced that Salvo! for the Mac and Windows has gone gold and is now in production. The naval warfare game developed by Sprugames is expected to ship on July 5, 2005.

Here's more from the press release:

Salvo! will be available for both the Windows and Mac OSX operating systems. It ships in a DVD box and comes with a printed manual. Salvo! is a single player experience of naval warfare from the 17th until the 19th centuries. Covering a wide range of engagements and combatants Salvo! does a superb job at capturing the essence of commanding a battle fleet during the Age of Sail, thanks to its Action Marker system for controlling individual ships and its Squadron Control for larger formations. With these systems battles can be fought between a handful of ships, huge fleet clashes, or everything in between and all with the same ease of control. Fighting Sail has never been easier!

But don't take our word for it! Noted longtime wargame critic Jim Cobb had this to say about the control scheme in his preview of Salvo! for Subsim.com, "Despite the panache of single ship clashes, Salvo! actually concentrates on fleet engagements. First, players create squadrons. These squadrons are then given orders for movement and combat while waypoints on the battle map expedite movement. Depending on the situation, ships follow squadron orders, can be instructed to act on their own initiative or can be controlled individually by the player seeking that Nelonesque movement. This method of handling a fleet is a significant departure from the lassoed groups in previous games and allows players much more control in handling numerous ships."

Macgamestore.com is currently taking pre-orders for the game for $38.88. Be sure to pre-order your copy today.
