His Majesty's Ship, the next game from developer Every Single Soldier (Vietnam ‘65, Afghanistan '11), is leaving behind the modern age for the rough seas and hoisted sails of the 18th century Royal Navy.

Against a backdrop of Spanish fleets and roaming pirates, you are master and commander in the Royal Navy, trying to progress your naval career from frigates to a ship of the line. During your travels, you'll need to manage your crew and vessel in real time to avoid mutines and keep supplies stockpiled.

Beyond combat and trade, you'll also be able to train and promote your crew, and when your ship reaches distant shores, can establish forts and raid coastal towns for supplies.

His Majesty's Ship will let you test your naval skills solo or in multiplayer against other captains. The game is slated to release in late 2018, but you can learn more about the game and its development on Every Single Soldier's site.
