'Hydrofoil Generation' Is A Sailing And Foiling Sim Coming To PC, Early Access Soon - Screens & Trailer

Hydrofoil Generation puts you at the helm of state-of-the-art sailing craft, modelled with unprecedented accuracy to replicate the exhilarating experience of ‘flying’ over the water at speeds over 50kn.

Hydrofoil Generation is a realistic sailing and foiling simulator from Indie developer Jaxx Vane Studio. A passion project created by Stefano "kunos" Casillo co-founder of Kunos Simulazioni, the globally acclaimed developer behind the racing simulation masterpiece Assetto Corsa.

An exciting and accurate first-person simulation of multiplayer "in-shore" regattas, Hydrofoil Generation is a demanding simulator that will push your skills and passion to the limit.

In Hydrofoil Generation you will sit at the helm of state-of-the-art engineering marvels modeled with unprecedented physical accuracy, sailboats that can "fly" over water to speeds over 50kn. Take control of the course, the sails trim and, most important , the foils. Keep your boat flying as high as possible to maximize speed but not so high to risk coming down with a splash or worse, as capsizing is just around the corner.

Deal with changing winds, different sea conditions, currents and up to 10 opponents in fierce multiplayer races.

"I was amazed the first time I saw hydrofoil boats racing in real life, and I immediately fell in love with the experience”, commented Stefano Casillo “With my experience working with Assetto Corsa, I wanted to replicate hydrofoil racing in a game for simulation fans to enjoy."

Hydrofoil Generation will launch PC via Steam Early Access in early 2023 and will include:

  • Jx50: A 50ft modern foiling catamaran capable of speeds of up to 50kn.
  • Jx40: A 40ft modern foiling monohull with automatic systems for ride height control.

You will be able to race these boats in several exciting locations such as Den Haag, Hong Kong and Bermuda, with carefully recreated coastlines.

Key Features:

  • Realistic sailing and foiling simulator
  • Choose from a range of vessels including the 40ft modern foiling monohull Jx40 and the 50ft modern catamaran Jx50
  • Real regatta fields with coastlines carefully recreated
  • Vessel customization system 
  • Compete against 10 opponents in multiplayer racing sessions

Hydrofoil Generation is in development for PC (Steam).
