According to a reliable leaker, Tom Henderson, who built a strong reputation as a Call of Duty and Battlefield 2042 leaker, said that players will explore the sea for the very first time with a small fishing boat.

To get their very first pirate boat, players have to collect resources like wood, fiber, and metal. Other than this, players also have to complete multiple quests in order to boost their character’s reputation. He also highlighted the point that there will be no combat or parkour elements in on-land sections of the game, like Assassin’s Creed. However, Henderson‘s thread of tweets contained multiple leaked images, but unfortunately, they were removed due to copyright issues.

Players can easily enhance a vessel’s predetermined arsenal of cannons with mortars, ballistas, and other weapons. According to Henderson, small boats are faster than bigger ones, as they can outrun the bigger ones if any chase occurs.

Players will start the game in ordinary fashion. The ultimate aim of the player is to earn more and more money. The more money you earn, the more powerful you become as a pirate. Later on, you’ll work your way up the pirate ladder with some minor jobs to earn cash. The progress will be based on the amount of money received from completing various jobs, raids, and cargo runs.
