ok so my 10 pieces of 8 on this.
Lovely looking world, had some solo time and love the fact nothing is explained. Spent 30 mins finding my way to an island for a chicken realizing I didnt have the cage.
Restarted with mr hoodedclaw and after 20 mins of laughing at dancing and playing the accordion we set off, 2 white chickens needed, off we went and hearing a boom I looked behind to discover a galleon bearing down on us, some skillful sailing on rics behalf we avoided it and they bailed. Got the chickens, only to find we had got the wrong ones, mission incomplete.
Couldn't find our ship, it had been robbed, 4 deaths later trying to get the ship back and I gave up as it was time to call it a night, ric managed to get the ship back. End of day 1.
In all honesty the world is lovely as mentioned by everyone, but theres nothing in it, no sense of populace, no canibals or vast wildlife, no people to rob, no npc ships to plunder and board, no ransoms or hijacks at sea. Compared to say GTAV online, or any other mmorpg theres nothing. The reward for what is basically a fetch quest and a long one at that is minimal. Combat is incredibly loose and random and not rewarding attall. I don't feel like a pirate I feel like a courier.
A game has to grab me from the off these days, and at present this doesn't have any hook for me, no Destiny loot reward of value. Its as shallow as No Mans Sky at launch and even less tbh.
A lovely idea but utterly bare bones and if content isn't thick and fast this will be off to davy jones locker
