Survios, the VR studio behind Raw Data (2017) and Creed: Rise to Glory (2018), today announced that their upcoming pirate ship battler finally has a release date; it’s slated to arrive on September 10th for most major VR headsets.

When the studio initially announced the closed beta, it wasn’t certain exactly which platforms the game would officially support. Now, the studio reveals, the game is slated to launch on September 10th for PSVR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive.

A version for Quest is also in the making, although its release date has yet to be revealed.

If you haven’t had a chance to jump into any of the game’s closed betas, check out our latest hands-on from E3 to get a taste of what the nautical battler has in store.

If you’re looking for the TL;DR though, here’s the skinny: Battlewake tosses you into a either a single player or co-op campaign filled with boss battles (massive Krakens anyone?). It also boasts multiplayer deathmatches as well, although when it comes to either co-op or multiplayer matches you’ll be piloting your own ship and controlling all manner of weapons and navigation yourself (i.e. everyone gets their own boat).

There’s plenty of opportunities to upgrade weapons, ultimates, and ship-specific stuff like defense points, health points, etc. The last bit: will it make you sick? The answer: probably not. Survios typically puts user comfort at the forefront of their games, with Battlewake being no exception. Again, for the full explanation, head over to our full hands-on piece.

    Ya & u can feel how it was like to be a western pirate that
    enslaved the whole world, r@ped , kiIIed & looted countries
    one after the another with the help of the gun.
    And also spread diseases.
    (and a secret they became g@ys while on the ships & contracted syphilis from one another that destroyed their brains which made them see ghosts)
    Long live the whitte west & their gun

      Yes because dark skinned people didn’t enslave themselves, have wars, sacrifice themselves to Gods, or have diseases. It was all the white mans fault! This is exactly why whites built this world, meanwhile everyone else destroys. You people rather blame others than take responsibility for yourselves. Also no whites went and enslaved people, they instead bought them from other dark skinned people. Good job moron, learn some history. Maybe then you guys would stop being classified as mentally retarded on a IQ test.

        You probably need to read up on who started slavery and sold their own people. When slavery ended it caused a power vacuum that is still happening in Africa today. It’s not your fault the slavery history on the internet has been twisted horribably and you are probably a 10yo.
