Mark your calendars for May 9, 2024, as Nordic boating sim powerhouse Misc Games will launch the industry’s most realistic boating and fishing sim yet, Ships at Sea, in Early Access on Windows PC via Steam.

Ships at Sea is the culmination of the studio’s drive, innovation, and creativity. Set in the unforgiving Norwegian Sea and around the harbors of Lofoten, Røst, and Værrøy, Norway, Misc Games utilizes NVIDIA’s proprietary WaveWorks water shader and the brand new Unreal Engine 5.4 to take captains on their most realistic boating adventures yet.

As seen in the trailer, Ships at Sea features some of the real local businesses around Røst and Værrøy, including A. Johansen, Jangaard Export, Kaikanten, Røst Sjømat, and Røst Bryggehotell. Misc Games has also licensed various boating and fishing equipment brands such as Breeze, PingMe (from Ocean Space Acoustics), Lorentzen Hydraulikk, and Østbornholms Kutterservice to provide the most realistic, dynamic overall experience for enthusiasts on both fronts: fishing and boating.

For the first time in Misc Games’ acclaimed boating catalog, soon-to-be skippers will be able to play with their friends online with their own boats in multiplayer. Additionally, Misc Games will launch an online co-op mode in the first major update where players can divide and conquer the expansive sea with different roles such as cargo transporter, service operator, commercial fisherman, and more.
