What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Over the last few months, we’ve received a ton of support and feedback from our public testing via Discord, and we think it’s important to keep this going! Blazing Sails has already improved a lot from the pre-alpha and we couldn’t have done it without our devoted community. Early Access allows us to keep expanding this amazing community and keep the valuable feedback coming while testing our newest features.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We still want to implement, balance and fix a lot of stuff before we can start calling our game “fully finished”. Of course, this takes time - especially for a small team. Get Up Games is a start-up studio, Blazing Sails being its first game. We want to do it right. While we think the Early Access period will last about 6 to 9 months, we don’t want to fix ourselves too hard on a specific date. If we don’t feel like our game is finished, we also won’t feel comfortable with a full launch.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“There is still plenty of stuff we want to add! That being said, the Early Access version of Blazing Sails contains all the core mechanics and features we wanted the game to have. Things we will add during our Early Access period will be stuff like:
• More gamemodes
• More weapons and weapon types
• Lots of extra pirate and ship customisation
• Extra custom server options
• Bug fixes and balancing
• Performance improvements
• Better controller support
• Extra language options
• …”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version of Blazing Sails contains all the core features you need in order to have plenty of fun! These are all relatively well polished but can easily be expanded and improved upon in the near future. Right now the game contains:
• 3 action-packed gamemodes: Treasure Hunt, Conquest and Battle Royale
• 20+ unique weapons (including a few wacky ones)
• 5 ship types: "The Brigantine" (slow moving, tanky, 4 players), "The Junk Ship" (fast moving, fragile, 4 players), "The Bomb Vessel" (average sail speed, mortar equipped, deadly at long range, 4 players), "The Sloop" (small, strong and fast for 2 players) and "The Galleon" (VERY BIG, lots of firepower, 10 players)
• 6 unique Island (clusters) to explore including a few event-themed ones (Pirate town, Trident cluster, Temple cluster, Kraken Keep, Icy Caverns and the Lunar Lands)
• 6 different map settings (noon, sunset, night, foggy day, foggy night and storm)
• Ship upgrades for the steering wheel, swivel cannons, cannons, capstan, cork and pump
• 500+ pirate and ship customisation unlocks
• Client/community hosted servers including a few admin commands
• Official dedicated servers
• A party system including in-game Steam friends list
• Voice chat
• Anti-cheat system + player reporting function
• Female and male pirate body types
• Leveling system with unique level-based rewards
• "Cursed pirate mode" handicap option for experienced players with unique progression timeline
• Much, much more!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The current plan is to increase the price upon full release but this is not final yet.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We’ve already implemented and considered a lot of community suggestions during our Discord testing phase and closely look at the reactions of the community every time after we push a new update. If you want to suggest something, give feedback, or report a bug the official Blazing Sails Discord is the ideal place for this. We tend to be quite active on Discord and read through the suggestions and feedback many times a week. We’re essentially making Blazing Sails the game we’ve always wanted to play. We would also appreciate devs listening to the community.”

About This Game

Explore different game-modes!

In Treasure Hunt you and your crew must search islands for treasure chests! Treasures can be turned in at one of the 2 outposts at the centre of the map in exchange for gold. Get more gold than your enemies to win!

Our Battle Royale offers a unique take on the genre. Enjoy a dynamic mix of swashbuckling on dry land and epic naval battles! Sink every other crew to emerge victorious.

Tired of looting? No problem! Jump straight into the action in our all new Galleon Conquest game mode. Experience movie-like broadside battles with a HUGE Galleon! Frag pirates, sink other ships and capture flags to win!

Part of the ship, part of the crew

Who knew being a pirate actually takes teamwork? Well, it does! Along with your fellow crew members you'll need to steer, repair and re-supply your ship while besieging enemy crews. Communication and cooperation are essential to secure a victory!

Choose your vessel!

A variety of ship types offer distinctly different play styles for your crew. The Brigantine is the classic - with a hull that can take a pounding and some serious firepower. The Junk Ship is smaller, faster and packs a front-facing cannon for daring head-on assaults! The Bomb Vessel is especially powerful at long distances with its unique mortar cannon. For the smaller crews there's a 2-player Sloop. But don't let its size fool you! The Sloop can easily go toe to toe with the bigger 4-player ships.

Equip a variety of legendary pirate arrrms

Change your playstyle based on the weapons you plunder. Take to the crow’s nest with your trusty sharpshooter, or board an enemy ship with the legendary life-stealing Sword of the Sea! Like something more explosive? Try the shoulder-cannon or fish-launcher. To each their own!


No two ships or pirates are the same! Show off your booty with a swath of customisable parts, clothing and accessories - embroidered jackets, gilded hulls, golden peg legs - you’ll get real fancy, real fast!
