Her Majesty’s Ship is a naval strategy game where you take command of a variety of ships, train your crew, fight other ships, raid towns and try to avoid a mutiny!
Playable in single-player and co-op or competitive multiplayer, Her Majesty’s Ship sees you commanding ships on the high seas during the Age of Sail. You start the game as a Lieutenant of a lowly frigate and prove your worth as you work your way up to becoming the Admiral of the Fleet. Interestingly, even if you’re playing in co-op and are commanding ships on the same side then you can still attack your team-mate’s ship to stop them from becoming the Admiral.
High seas adventures of Her Majesty’s Ship takes place in a world loosely based on the Caribbean, with British, French, Spanish and Dutch ships all competing for resources and riches. To keep your ships ship shape you’ll need to train your crew and manage your stores of foot, drink, gunpowder and gold. You’ll also be able to raid towns, build forts and press gang sailors into service.
It’s a great looking game that looks set to offer a nice blend of strategy and simulation as you carve out a career for yourself on the open sea. The cut-away view of your ship is a very nice touch which should make managing your ship and keeping an eye on your crew a little easier.
