'Victory at Sea Pacific' Reveals Dozens Of Ships And Planes Available At Launch

by Rainier on July 12, 2018 @ 1:00 a.m. PDT

Victory at Sea Pacific sees you engage in tactical search and destroy naval warfare across WWII’s Pacific ocean in this huge open world real time strategy.

Victory at Sea Pacific - the game of naval combat during the Second World War where a player can switch between commanding the entire Pacific theatre to zooming down to take control of individual ships and flights of planes. Fire the torpedoes from your submarine wolf pack or step onto the Bridge to direct your fleets and change the course of the war.

Bringing an epic approach to real time strategy war gaming, players develop their own story with an open world sandbox mechanic in a desperate attempt to win the World War 2.

The game sees you to take part in a nerve wracking game of cat and mouse as you scour the seas in search of enemy fleets and send submarines to strangle their supply lines.

In Victory at Sea Pacific you can covertly recon enemy positions and launch a large scale amphibious assault by sea and air against the chosen targets.

Fighting a coastal invasion brings together large numbers of ships from landing craft of various types, to multiple flights of aircraft and mighty ships to bombard the enemy positions in an attempt to capture key objectives from the enemy

In addition Victory at Sea Pacific allows you to take command of large squadrons of planes against enemy fleets and send scouts to hunt for the enemy wherever they may be.

In Victory At Sea Pacific, the emphasis on the cat and mouse gameplay has added a greater threat of enemy fleets sneaking past players in the night, this has meant that players not only needed to tell planes where to hunt but also to target specific objectives. They need full control of the sea and air. 

Because of this even more specialist aircraft are being introduced into the game, including the Yokosuka MXY7 Ohka, a purpose-built, rocket-powered human-guided kamikaze attack aircraft.

Based on feedback from the community we are also looking at players being able to swap out payloads and change what aircraft a carrier can carry.

We have so far created over 120 ship classes and plane types for launch and are already developing more.

In planning Victory At Sea Pacific we knew we wanted sizeable fleets that players could build from, the original Victory At Sea ended up with 80 ship classes, but due to the huge difference in scale in the new game we knew we needed to give the player greater options.

You can also train your crews in and out of combat, setting drills and rest periods as well as managing rations and monitoring their morale. Do you push them to breaking point or build a highly skilled team ready for combat.

In Victory At Sea Pacific your destiny is in your hands, there are no levels, there is no do over. This is Pacific Warfare from day one until ultimate victory is achieved. Every engagement is important, the combat merciless, and the outcome is uncertain.

The game allows you to customise and create multiple fleets, and send them to different parts of the Pacific theatre to perform whatever tasks you see fit. Will you send submarines to harass enemy supply ships or send flights of planes to hunt for enemy ships?

Remember you must always be vigilant, it only takes a fleet to slip past you in the night and attack a poorly defended allied port to see the tide turn against you.

How the naval war in the Pacific ends is up to you and the decisions you make.

With over 100 ship classes and counting, representing thousands of vessels, and dozens of types of aircraft and ports spanning the Pacific ocean, Victory At Sea Pacific represents limitless strategic options as you find yourself in total command of the Pacific Theatre during WW2.

From small skirmishes involving single destroyers and hunting down merchantmen, to the clashing of massive fleets against implacable enemies, Victory at Sea Pacific is your ticket to exciting battles that take place on the dangerous seas of World War II.
