The call of war beckons. Four factions, in their mighty airships, have taken to the skies over the charred remains of a post-apocalypse world. The time of reckoning is upon every captain and crew; to set forth into war to see which faction reigns supreme.

Fallen from grace, the Fjord Baronies attempt to reclaim their heritage and fulfill a destiny as prophecy foretold. The Anglean Republic obsessively scours the land for long forgotten technologies to return the world to a fabled and former paradise. Taking advantage of the world’s desperate state, the Mercantile Guild buys and sells anything worth a price to the highest bidder. And as the earth continues to bleed, the Order of Chaladon emerges from their seclusion to stem the flow and repair what has been damaged, no matter what the cost. Choose your faction and shape the future of this world!

With 13 ships, 24 guns, 26 tools and 15 special abilities, you and your crew will have the opportunity to forge new experiences and experiment with unique and never-tried-before builds and combinations thousands of times over. Test your choices again an AI Director armed with fleets of planes, an armada of ships, and imposing bosses.

Once your ship is outfitted with the most powerful guns and expert crew, set forth and battle across 36,000 square meters of terrain, over various action-packed game modes and maps. Every choice you make affects the state of the world in real time. Force other players to attack, defend, or flee with the planning of a master strategist. At the end of every season, see the culmination of your choices in our emergent narrative and player-influenced history of the world.

Outfit your ship, find a loyal crew, and take to the skies to bring glory to your faction!
