Take over islands, defend your town, build up your reputation, fight off threats – but most importantly Don’t Sink!
Don’t Sink is the latest game to come out of Studio Eris and will task you with traversing the high seas in your trusty boat, ultimately expanding your reputation across the world as a well-known pirate. The world really is your oyster, with a number of colourful islands to explore, purchase and assume as your own. But you are not the only ones who want a piece of the action, and your own pirate crew will have to fight against rival pirates, engaging in naval combat and occasionally getting up close and personal with some traditional sword fighting.
An army, or in this case a pirate crew, marches on its stomach, and you will have to not only manage the hunger of your crew but also many other conditions, as well as ensuring your ship is in top shape ahead of your next altercation. Buying and selling goods from the shopkeeps found on islands will be necessary in order for your crew and ship to operate at their optimum.
With many beautiful places to explore and a number of people to help out along the way, Don’t Sink will let you play out a pirate fantasy where not everything is about plundering and fighting. To start your pirate story all you need is to spend £8.39 at the Xbox Store and the game will magically be yours on Xbox One. Alternatively the game can be played on PC.
