Full steam ahead as the second chapter of the successful maritime business simulation prepares to set sail on May 11th
Developer Deck13 Hamburg and publisher astragon Entertainment are happy to announce that TransOcean 2: Rivals, the second chapter of their challenging economic strategy simulation series, will be released for PC and Mac on May 11th with a suggested retail price of £18.99/€24.99.
In TransOcean 2: Rivals, players take on the role as a boss of their own shipping line, going head-to-head with their international rivals in the quest to secure the most lucrative contracts and propel their business to global success and renown.
Starting out in one of 60 available ports with a small fleet of tiny merchant vessels, players will look to complete their first contracts to nearby ports in order to generate their initial funds. From there, they will slowly expand their fleet, with a choice of Tankers, Container Ships and Bulk Carriers, establishing subsidiaries all over the world through the application of astute business practices, planning their voyages with foresight and not underestimating external factors such as the price of oil or the activities of their rivals. A sophisticated economic system influencing all types of goods within the game also ensures that players will be faced with a variety of macroeconomic challenges.
TransOcean 2: Rivals will feature three single-player modes – Campaign, Endless Game and Competition – as well as a competitive multiplayer mode for up to eight players. Do you have what it takes to rule the High Seas?
