First up, we have Fighting Sail getting released in May. This book puts players in the position of fleet admirals between 1775 – 1815, reenacting the massive ship battles of the Napoleonic era.
Each fleet has access to different ships, tactics, and command personalities – each with its own strengths and weaknesses. Offering a unique blend of detail and simplicity, the scenarios included enable the recreation of historic actions or ‘what-if’ scenarios.
I love this period of naval history and this new rule set looks like the perfect way to explore it further.
So far, we don’t have any details on this new game, but it looks like it will probably be a skirmish game blending modern warfare with some slight scifi elements, in the vein of video games like Call of Duty Black Ops. However it turns out, it should be an interesting new small scale wargame that I think will be heavily objective based to recreate black ops tactical missions.
Do you want to play Fighting Sail? Or would you prefer Black Ops?
