Shrapnel Games today announced it has begun shipping Salvo!, a "tactical" naval combat game covering the Age of Sail era, from the 17th century until the 19th century. Salvo!, which retails for $39.95, is available for pre-order from Macgamestore.com and available shortly.
Here's more from the press release:
All manner of engagements are represented, from duels involving just a few vessels to large scale clashes that would make Nelson proud. Salvo!, while designed for maximum playability, includes a great deal of features that help make it a true-to-life naval experience. Commanders will deal with shallow water, land masses, variable wind, boarding actions, and more. Plenty of chrome makes an appearance too, such as shore batteries and fire ships.For more on Salvo!, head over to the official site.
Featuring a wide range of combatants from the major seafaring powers of the time (including pirates), and branching campaigns for great replayability, Salvo! is a game that will keep the fight alive on your monitor. Speaking of fighting, thanks to Salvo!'s highly intuitive "Action Marker" and squadron control system gamers never have to fight the game itself to play, even when dealing with armadas of ships. With beautifully rendered 3D graphics that instantly communicate the state of the battle to you Salvo! is one of the easiest wargames to pick up and play.
