Abandon Ship’s sixth update brings the “Sword of the Cult”, a Cthulhu-esque cult for you to overthrow

From Press Release:

Tuesday 30th July 2019 – Fireblade Software unveils Sword of the Cult, a major update for Abandon Ship alongside blow-out sale before price increase.

In the update, Captains will play a new campaign where they control a betrayed Cultist hell-bent on revenge on the ‘Severed One’ (the protagonist from the main story). As they carry out Father’s Will, they will rise through the ranks, until gaining command of the ultimate weapon: the Kraken.

Alongside this, the main story has been extended to bring it in line with the world-changing conclusion of the Sword of the Cult campaign

Captains can also venture into three new regions:

  • The Northern Remnants, the only area to thrive beyond the Fall – until an earth-shattering earthquake destroyed much of the region. It is home to Pirates and the Cult, now.
  • Land’s End, home of the Redoubt. This is the region the Cult take over in the new campaign – by the time it’s accessible in the main story, the Cult have already achieved dominance – but that doesn’t mean you can’t hamper their efforts by destroying their fortresses and desecrating their shrines.
  • The Wild Sea. Battered by incessant gales, in combat the winds will damage mast sections at their height, as well as risking sending crew overboard. In exploration huge water spouts must be avoided, else they risk damaging your vessel. Captain’s brave enough to venture into the furthest extremes may not like what lies at the worlds edge.

In keeping with previous updates, these areas are filled with unique islands and quests, some with lasting consequences on the environment.

Will you carry out the Necromancers will, and penetrate the walls of the Cofferdam City?

Meeting a familiar face from the combat campaign, will you help an ambitious and ruthless Captain take over the Skin Merchants gang?

Many more weird, wonderful and grim stories lie out there, waiting to be discovered.
