Man O' War: Corsair - Warhammer Naval Battles - Fraser Evil Twin


Bretonnian and Empire campaigns!

Begin your life as a newly conscripted captain in the Bretonnian or Empire navy. A trickier start than the regular independent game, you'll be commanding either a Buccaneer or a Wargalley.

As a member of your faction's navy you'll be able to capture sea zones and even ports for your home nation, though all your actions will have diplomatic consequences - attack ships from a neutral nation and a war is likely. You'll also have to keep an eye out for relations breaking down depites your actions - a hostile nation suddenly declaring war as you sail through their waters.

Joining the navy has other benefits, with enough loyalty built up with your faction you'll be able to hire elite units such as Sergeants of the Empire and Knights of the Realm.

Elite units come with a special trait (or sometimes several) which make them significantly more powerful than normal crew, but they're not cheap. Bretonnians can also hire Knights of the Realm who gain new traits as they level up, becoming especially powerful at high levels.

You can also hire captains for any spare ships you buy or capture - build your own fleet for an invasion.

Independent captains can also get in on the naval action - if you can build up enough loyalty with a human faction they'll offer to let you join their navy. This comes with all the benefits and downsides above. If you choose you can try leading the Wastelanders to glory or perhaps pledge allegiance to the Pirate Princes of Sartosa.

Beware if you choose to betray the faction you have joined, attacking your own faction's ports, hurting allies of your own faction or just destroying your favour with your own faction by attacking your fellow navy ships will lead to a banishment - you'll forever be hostile to that faction.

Finally, it wouldn't be right to join the navy without flying the correct flags - the sailmaker's shop has now opened at the shipwright's office.

Man O' War: Corsair - Warhammer Naval Battles - Fraser Evil Twin


This update brings the Slaanesh Chaos campaign and a feature much requested by the community: ship capture, as well as a new camera view option for all ships.

Slaanesh Campaign
Transform the old world into a hedonistic paradise for the glory of the Prince of Pleasure. More than just destruction is your goal as you corrupt the minds of the enemy crew and send your acolytes to spread the unspeakable joys of service to Slaanesh, turning the human ports into hives of decadence.

Ship Capture
Independent captains and Slaanesh captains are now able to capture enemy ships.

For the independent captain, as long as it's something your crew can steer you can put a prize crew aboard and have them take the ship back to port. Beware that the owning faction will attack the ship on sight. Once in port you can either sell the ship or pay to have the shipwrights repair the damage, clean the barnacles, and replace the rusty old cannon so that you can sail the ship anew. Be careful to keep it out of sight of its previous owners still (though rumour has it that some of the less law abiding ports can help with that).

For Slaanesh, capture is a means to an end - capture an enemy ship (ideally with half its crew already on your side from the Radiance of Slaanesh) and send your most human-looking cultists aboard, back to the ships home port. On reaching port they'll infiltrate the town and start to corrupt it. With enough cultists and a bit of time the port will become defenceless, its citizens too intent on their revels to care about anything else. At this point you may either leave them to praise Slaanesh with their carnal ways or burn the port to the ground as an offering.

Ship upgrades
Ship upgrades no longer have a limit based on the type - instead all ship upgrades come with a cargo space cost. You can choose to sacrifice more of your carrying capacity in order to build up those guns and reinforce every surface you can find.

Tactical View
Press 'V' (or Y button on gamepad) when sailing to toggle between standard Captain sailing view and a zoomed out Tactical view which shows your entire ship.

Full list of changes:
- Added Slaanesh campaign
- Added Ship Capture mechanic
- Ship upgrades now cost cargo space and are no longer limited by type
- Controlled character camera now moves above the player if it would be pushed too close by geometry.
- Added icons for when your character is locking onto an enemy (by blocking or mid-swing). Updated icons for enemies who are targeting you and nearby enemies out of view
- Khorne campaign start now locked until Independent campaign is completed (unless 'skip tutorial' is toggled in the options or you've played Khorne previously)
- Nurgle and Slaanesh captains can now Ascend
- Additional sail designs for Nurgle and Slaanesh
- Global movement AI ships will collect cargo from enemies they sink
- Ships can now be sold from the warehouse
- Selling a ship from the warehouse will transfer any remaining crew to the player ship, or the tavern depending on space
- Journal shows latest entry on opening, more entries per page, formatting made clearer
- Melee Chain attacks are now much more reliable to trigger
- Fixed a bug with To Smell a Rat quest
- Player ally ships get a small boarding bonus vs AI
- Hellships get a boarding bonus in AI vs AI fights

Update 1.2.1:
- Added zoomed out Tactical View, press V (or Y button on gamepad) when sailing to toggle between normal sailing view and tactical sailing view.
- Hellship sails hidden when using anti-flyer weapon
- Reduced volume on Hellship ambient screams
- Slightly increased late-game build up speed of aggressive factions
- Fix for null error with piloting captured ships.
- Added additional info to crew on capture ship screen
- Moved Capture Ship button to be more obvious
- Crew piloting a captured prize ship will leave their weapons
- Crew piloting a prize ship will move to the tavern after docking (and can be rehired without any up front cost)
- Removed duplicate shrine rewards for Slaanesh
- AI Allies generate less aggro from enemies from accidental damage
- First mate will only warn if you're under attack if you were not already under attack.
- Moved captain load in point in Alquezaro
- Can no longer send a captured ship to a razed port
- Increased value of sacrificed cargo (Chaos campaigns)
- Improved look of Slaanesh corruption UI on ports
- Smoothed melee animations for AI
- Player character defaults to running
- Wolfship front sails hidden whilst aiming front cannons
- Camera behaves better around railings during boarding

Fell Cargo
A Warhammer novel by Dan Abnett

When infamous pirate captain Luka Silvaro returns to reclaim his craft and crew, he is given the most important – and lucrative – assignment of his career: to defeat a monstrous daemon lord that haunts the Old World's oceans.

The oceans of the Old World have fallen silent. The waves are haunted by the Butcher Ship, a nightmare vessel manned by zombies and captained by a daemon lord. Its ghastly crew bring about a reign of terror on the high seas, killing anyone they encounter. When infamous pirate captain Luka Silvaro returns to reclaim his craft and crew, he is given the most important - and lucrative - assignment of his career. Supported by the Prince of Luccini, Silvaro knows he will be able to claim a king's ransom if he can defeat the daemon lord. But he will have to face treachery from within, the dangers of the high seas and the Chaos-infested crew of the Butcher Ship if he is to earn his reward.

“Come twilight, they rowed ashore and beached in a small, high-sided cove of shingle and mossy rock west of the harbour bay. He knew the way, and led his companion sure-footedly up the cove path, over the grassy headland and down towards the lantern lights of the ramshackle town.”

Nurgle Campaign!
Spread plague and destruction throughout the Old World as a Chosen of Nurgle.
Infect ships with Nurgle's Rot and board them till it overcomes the ship, and watch it take the plague back to port.
(Unlocked by completing the tutorial, playing the Khorne tutorial first is recommended)

Chaos campaign changes
For both Nurgle and Khorne campaigns, the requirements for petitions are now based on the number of ports you have destroyed - making it much easier to see your progression.
You can also change which ship in your fleet you choose to captain - any same-faction ship can be commanded.

Chaos challengers
Recruit new allies for your chaos fleet - find the champions of the other chaos powers and defeat them to gain a powerful ship and the ability to petition for more.

Man O' War: Corsair - Warhammer Naval Battles - Fraser Evil Twin
Welcome to the release build of Man O' War: Corsair.

This release doesn't bring any new features in itself, but is the culmination of all of our past updates with a few extra bug fixes. Here's an overview of what's happened since our initial alpha 0.1:

0.2: This update brought us chaos invaders in the form of the Khorne fleets, expanded the available map to include the oceans around Bretonnia, added Orc ports, pirate ports, and looting. Also the dreaded Black Leviathan was spotted beneath the waves.

0.3: Our biggest request in the first few months had been for melee combat - which wasn't originally part of the plan! Our first iteration was released in 0.3 along with a whole load of swords, axes and other melee weapons.

0.4: Dwarfs! Skaven! Flyers! Magic! I guess the name of that one covers it - two of the most popular races in the Warhammer universe took to the seas as enemies in this update, as well as two of the eight colleges of magic (all eight are in now!) plus flyers and anti-flyer weapons for your ships.

0.5: This update brought in the faction diplomacy and the control of sea regions - the human forces now patrol their territories, bicker over border disputes and attempt to annex each other's ports. All of this despite the hostile forces gathering in the deep oceans, now numbering Nurgle, Slaanesh and Tzeentch. High elf ships were also spotted on the waves at this time.

0.6: Crew management - no longer just a number, your crew are now individuals with their own names, levels, equipment. Undead! Ware those who venture out on Geheimnisnacht when the undead fleets sail forth.

0.7: Level up! Skills for your captain as you level up. Estalia and Tilea join the fray, expanding the map all the way south to Sartosa. The latest fashions from Miragliano also arrive, with a whole host of hats and outfits available to customise your captain. For those with a more practical mind we also added addtional ammo types for your cannon.

0.8: Blood for the Blood God! Our chaos campaign's debut, but not only that, you can now walk around in all of the ports in the old world (and then slay their inhabitants... well, depending on which side you're on)

0.9: Custom battles - ever wondered what chance a lone nautilus prowling the depths would have against an orc fleet? or perhaps you just want to control those giant claws on the Hulk yourself for a change... we added a new game mode which lets you try all this and more.

We've also added Linux support, SteamOS support as well as Gamepad and Steam Controller support!


Welcome aboard new captains, here's looking forward to 1.1 ....
