Gamescom 22: There’s a strategic way to pirate in Tortuga – A Pirate’s Tale

Pirates seem to be all the rage these days (again). Kalypso and Gaming Minds Studios are taking a more strategic approach, with Tortuga.


In Tortuga – A Pirate’s Tale, it’s time to see if ye truly have what it takes to become the greatest pirate of the Caribbean! Set sail on the vast and beautiful Caribbean Sea as players commence their journey with their sights on eternal gold and glory. Choose from 18 unique ship types and customize distinct features from the flag and weaponry to the hull and figurehead. It’s a vast world out there, but you are never truly alone, and players will encounter historical pirate captains who they must decide is friend or foe. Take on trading convoys and settlements in tactical turn-based battles to relieve them of the burden of wealth, and then use your (stolen) riches to upgrade your formidable fleet. With a mighty fleet and enough gold, you might be able to keep your crew happy. But be warned! You are an elected captain, after all, and it is your duty to maintain your crew’s morale, or else mutiny could be on the horizon…  

Kalypso press release

Tortuga – A Pirate’s Tale is setting sail for Xbox and PlayStation platforms, as well as the PC, where it’ll be a timed-exclusive on Epic, for 12 months. Watch for it in early 2023.
