Abandon Ship is an upcoming title which bills itself as “FTL meets Master & Commander.” It’s easy to see these influences, as well as get excited by the engaging ship-to-ship (or even ship-to-monster) combat. However, there’s more to the experience than battling.
There’s also a huge exploration component in Abandon Ship. Players explore different regions which piece together to create a much larger overall map. They may opt to stick straight on the story path, or sail off into side quests. Many unique biomes and areas exist off the beaten path for explorers.
Abandon Ship is expected to land on PC later this year.
