Blackwake News and Updates

As of March 6 3.0 is now live for all in a pre patch state in case a rollback is needed. A trailer and proper announcement will come soon if everything is working as intended.

After our preview posts we kept getting asked: Date! Date! To which we responded with the surprisingly (though risky) estimate of "15 days from the news post".

Well instead of staying quiet we want to let you guys know where things are. First, things are going great. If you haven't been playing the game, 3.0 has been in public testing with the server appearing at the top of the server list in blue for the past few days. Public tests are going well and we're really nailing down the final balance. With fort sieges, mortars, numerous new ships, multiple new shot types, and improvements to destruction both mechanically and visually, we're starting to be happy with where it is.

The catch of our estimate was "if everything goes fine". So there is still no date, but we are very close

While everything is going great we've come across a handful of small bugs that are real thinkers. These bugs originate from how the game mechanics were originally designed and now conflict with 3.0, which is basically Blackwake 2 released as a patch. Remember that before 3.0 we were on our way out of Early Access and the game was on its way to being polished. 3.0 has taken such a toll on the game that we have back backpedaled in that regard. But it was for the better!


We're very excited, and the feedback we're getting on the updates is only making us more excited. Hearing comments like "I can't believe this, it's like a whole new game" or "This is how it should have been from day one" over voice chat while public testing alongside you guys make us very proud!

Avast ye landlubbers!
Blackwake Alpha V1.0.0 is now live and features the new game mode Capture the Booty! We hope you guys will enjoy blasting each other on land and fighting over the precious Booty chest filled with gold! If you've enjoyed capture the flag in other games it works the same way in Blackwake. Two teams of two hoys each will fight to bring back a single chest to their base. The team first to 3 captures will win. This mode is still planning to be tweaked and polished with further changes later.
While this Alpha version took longer than intended, the future Alpha versions will provide some fresh and interesting content. As mentioned in the previous update new ships are currently being worked on and will be shown in the Alpha V2 preview, as well as a different type of CTB mode. Some general improvements and bug fixes are planned to come also, with the resolve of some connection issues (hopefully) many of you were having.
We're super excited for you all to see the future updates and we know you guys will have a blast as a lot of things you've been requesting are on their way. Thank you to all of you who are sticking with us and enjoying the game.
(also a few fixes have been made, including tickets on other aspect ratios this time for real!)
See you on the Seven Seas,
Tyler & Dakota
SERVER OWNERS: Config is "8" for CTB mode.
