It seems some developers of Il2 are working on this naval game.

Very interesting to me, thanks Wolfie, how did you hear about it? They have made some good progress in a year it seems...
We have started in February 2013. Naval Action is being developed by professionals who participated in production of S.T.A.L.K.E.R, World of Tanks, IL-2, Rise of Flight and other less important games.

Now, it is unclear what the 'grand scheme' of things will be: limit focus to historic battles, or ultimately a MP sandbox. If the latter, then they'll need to make a game map out of the whole world for players to roam.

That would be epic. :cool:

Sure to be registering and spending some 'quality time' on their forum this weekend... :grin:

From the brief survey I did of threads/posts, there are some real historical types in the community and vocal (as always) which is a damn good sign. When I saw that some WoTanks devs were involved, I said to self, "Oh, oh..." :roll:

I wonder if it will have joystick and TIR support?

I am using the same engine as they are using for the games I am making for the new Dutch military museum. They were promoted on that side so that's how I find them. The fact that Rof devs and Il2 devs were workin on it caught my eye.


That ultimate general game also looks cool Haash. To many games to keep on the radar :)

Some new youtube action...this looks incredible..

http://www.youtube.com/user/Navalaction

What could be a great deal of fun is the fact that we are spread across the globe and living in some pretty serious Naval Nations. You just know Koll, Wolfie and Vander are gunna try sailing up the Thames, now don't you. Meanwhile Haash might have another go at Gibraltar...Im not even gonna think about what the "Colonials" are up to :)

Looks great indeed! I still have to figure out how the gameplay will work out, but I do like the idea of a game around the age of sail...
