After a great flood devastates the world and its civilizations, humanity’s last remnants are left to struggle against each other for limited resources and survival beneath an impenetrable layer of permanent ice. As submersible captains, players must explore the uncharted reaches of the open sea, brimming with distinct harbors, factions, mercenaries and secrets. Salvage treasure and supplies from wherever possible, trade goods and bounties, battle enemy vessels in real-time 3D action and take on gargantuan creatures from the darkest depths of this beautifully realized aquatic realm.
Managing the nine uniquely equipped submarines available is a central challenge of Diluvion’s thoughtful and gripping gameplay. Players can recruit officers of varying skill sets and personalities from ports around the sea to helm the different battle stations of their vessels. Ships can be enhanced with new weapons to change the tide of a firefight, as well as new components to increase their range and survivability. Captains can even build and upgrade their own home bases of operation beneath the ice to house stand-by crew members and subs while increasing their notoriety and wealth.
Diluvion is available for pre-order now, and players who purchase it before release will receive a 15% discount, the Captain’s Journal, which documents the game’s rich lore, and a pre-order exclusive“Deringer”submarine to use in-game. A Collector's Edition version of the game will also be available at launch and will include a comprehensive digital art book, an exclusive playable submarine called“Manta,” and a downloadable copy of the game’s original soundtrack, composed by Michael Ward.
Inspired by the imaginative works of Jules Verne and the ship-to-ship combat of classics like Wing Commander and Freelancer, Diluvion will be available as digital download through Steam.
