Abandon Ship Press Release 22nd October at 16:30 BST

On Tuesday 22nd October 2019 at 16:30 BST Fireblade Software will unleash Version 1.0 of Abandon Ship. The full release will contain a swathe of new content including:

– The epic conclusion to the main story, a battle against an all-conquering Cult that worships sea monsters.

– Freeplay Mode, which is set after the world-changing events of the main story. The entire map is unlocked to explore as the player wishes, with a long-term goal of rebuilding a Pirate Base.

– The final region unlocked. Venture into the Uncharted, an inhospitable region filled with the weird and wonderful, from raging lightning storms to shallow waters, Captains will have plenty of environmental modifiers to challenge them.

– All original regions have been completely revamped to match the quality of the recently unlocked regions. Abandon Ship now has over 100 maps and every single one has at least one unique island and event/quest to discover.

A new Lifeboat & Stranded mode, Female Captain, extra ships and lots more await. More details are given here:


Leaving Early Access marks the end of a busy period for the game, in which six major updates were released.
