Swashbucklers: Blue vs. Grey is a thrilling naval action RPG set in the time of last pirate renaissance on the Caribbean. Smuggle, trade, fight, choose your side and become the region's most notorious captain!

The Union fleet blockaded the southern ports, severing all the trade connections of the Confederacy. In return, the Confederate government started giving out the privateer patents, thus building a powerful fleet of commercial raiders...

Abraham Gray, the main character, starts the game as a captain of a privately owned vessel, but soon becomes involved in a tale of blockade-running, military espionage and a very powerful ironclad, built in Liverpool for the Confederacy. This vessel alone could change the course of the war and bring victory to the Rebel states. Abraham can join either the Confederacy as a raider or the Union as a spy.

Key Features:

  • Thrilling atmosphere of political intrigue and military espionage in the last and greatest era of the Caribbean pirates
  • Open-ended play structure in the North Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexican
