'Ships 2022' (ALL) Announced For PC And Consoles - Screens & Trailer

Ships 2022 combines an economic strategy game and a simulator, with elements of an action game, allowing you to manage your own port and set out on various independent sea expeditions.

Do you see this port? You’re in charge of it from now on. It’s not the easiest job in the world; you take responsibility for both the ships and the crew you have to recruit. However, if you pull it off, a door leading to enormous profits will open before you, allowing you to develop your harbor.

To ease yourself into it, you will start with simple tasks. This way you’ll be able to upgrade your port and purchase new watercraft. You’ll also need a crew. Send your people on missions, and when the situation requires it, personally take the helm of the ship and face the vastness of the open sea.

Ships 2022 features two game modes. In the first, strategic one, your role comes down to broad-based management: you give orders to your employees and you have the last word on the units – their repair, upgrades, and load. You also decide whether and when to start expanding the port in order to increase its capabilities and profitability.

In the second mode, you’ll move from the managerial chair to the deck of the ship to personally lead the sea expedition. This is where Ships 2022 changes from an economic strategy to an action/simulation game. Balancing between these two modes increases the immersion, diversifies the gameplay and doesn’t let you get bored.

The game lets you manage a variety of ships. Among the available vessels, you’ll find a container ship, an icebreaker, a rescue unit, an oiler, a tanker, and a cruise ship.

Ships 2022 features a realistic, open-world with a daily time system. The dynamics of the game is stimulated by the randomness of events, including changing weather. When you sail out to the sea, you never know what awaits you. In addition, you also have a number of varied missions to complete, each of them different and determined by the type of the ship you’ll be managing. Every completed assignment brings you closer to the main goal of the game, i.e. the expansion of the port.

Ships 2022 is a continuation of Ships 2017 and at the same time a completely new and fresh opening for the brand. We are preparing very diverse gameplay, which will consist of a strategic and a simulation part. In the first one, we will manage the development of our own port complex – here Ships 2022 will be an extensive economic strategy. The second half of the game, however, will consist of conducting various sea expeditions, where we will manage, for example, a tanker or a rescue unit in order to perform specific tasks” – said Tomasz Supeł, CEO at Games Box S.A.

“Ports and ships constitute one of the key elements in the entire bloodstream of international trade. In Ships 2022, we want to bring players closer to this fascinating world. Managing the port complex, as well as individual units and employees, will be a refreshing challenge for fans of economic strategies. The ability to independently lead various sea expeditions will, in turn, be a great diversion, as there is no place for boredom here either – there’s something really special in sailing the seas and oceans” – added Tomasz Supeł.
