There are some fun MMOs on the App Store, but we are lacking in good naval ones, a fact that 175Game is hoping to remedy with the upcoming Great Voyage. According to the developers in our Upcoming Games forum thread, the game takes place in the Age of Discovery. You are a captain searching for answers in your father’s death and, of course, looking to take revenge on all involved. The game takes place across the world and features real-time PvP sea battles along with the usual MMO features of guild raids, battle arenas, and, of course, plundering any loot you come upon.
You can even play as a peaceful captain and focus on trading across harbors, investing in cities, and so on. I always like the idea of playing an MMO without killing everything in sight, but more often than not such roles are half-baked. Great Voyage will offer over 200 quests, and you’ll be able to get your hands on over 30 ships. The game is close to being done, but no details on release dates so far. Check out our forum page for more details on the game.
