eSail: Sailing Yacht Simulator promises an authentic and realistic yacht sailing experience, teaching players the complexities of how to sail then allowing them to explore the sea around a collection of islands and take part in challenges and races.
In eSail: Sailing Yacht Simulator sailing a yacht isn’t as simple as pressing accelerator on a controller then steering left and right, you have to learn how to sail properly – which involves raising the mainsail, tacking, gybing, mooring, anchoring and other seafaring activities. It’s not a boat racing game, it’s a fully featured simulator that should leave you with some understanding of how to pilot a real yacht once you master it.
In eSail: Sailing Yacht Simulator you’ll learn the ropes then set out in the open waters surrounding the Shearwater Islands. The area promises points of interest to find, such as the wreck of the Princess Zara and the Temple of False Hope. It also has a continually changing weather system, with you having to react to sea conditions changing due to the weather, time of day and seasonal changes. Once you’ve mastered the seas you can also take on challenges, such as races, treasure hunts, passage planning and collision avoidance in obstacle courses.
The complexities of sailing a yacht may not be for everyone, but eSail: Sailing Yacht Simulator looks set to offer a fun and authentic simulation for those who have always felt the call of the sea. Sign up for the Beta now to haul anchor on your very own yacht!
