Land missions are arcade fighting with multiple enemies. Player controls his characters and fights the enemies, pirates and enemy soldiers. He can use different weapons like cutlasses, pistols, muskets, throwing knives and hand bombs. Also player can perform various strikes and combos against the enemies. For killing them, character gets special points that can be used for acquiring new fighting techniques. Moreover, he earns the gold that can be spent on new weapons and equipment.

In most of the missions player character is followed by his allies who fight the enemies as well as character does. The main idea of land missions is to give the player an impression of being in the heart of the fierce battle with many things going on around him. To improve player's immersion in the game the environment is completely interactive. All the time player fights he sees cannonballs flying in and breaking ship's interior or fort tower exploding and falling down almost on his character's head. We are seeking to give the player an impression he could get playing the Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and the Lord of the Rings: Return of the King games. But we deepen and enlarge this impression almost to a movie with player playing the main role.

An entirely new game engine (a successor of unmatched STORM 2 engine that is still perfect for naval landscapes and was used for development of Pirates of the Caribbean) delivers spectacular 3D graphics with high poly-count and all new shader-based features implemented.
