Frigato: Shadows of the Caribbean, the debut project of the Polish studio Mercat Games, has been announced. The title resembles Commandos and Desperados-style strategies but focuses on pirate climates.
Coming next year for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, and Nintendo Switch. Earlier – June 13 – a demo will arrive on Steam.
The creators mention Shadow Tactics, Desperados, Commandos, War Mongrels, and Partisans 1941, among their inspirations, all with similar assumptions. We observe the action in isometric projection to sneak between opponents on large maps in real-time, leading characters with different skills.
Frigato is distinguished by its subject matter – we control a team of pirates in the Caribbean. We will visit ship decks, mystical islands, and “many other characteristic locations.” There seem to be some fantastic elements as well – the trailer shows a siren.
The choices made are to affect the reputation of our merry gang and the world. So it will be possible not only to murder opponents but also a slightly more pacifist approach to solving pirate mysteries.
