Worlds Adrift trailer shows shipbuilding, ship battles

Bossa Studios' sandbox MMO Worlds Adrift is a game about exploring the skies via homemade airships, and a new trailer reveals how we'll be doing that. As you can see below, first you'll decide their overall shape with an in-game computer terminal thingy, before slapping weapons, parts and panels onto the frame. The video goes on to showcase what will probably happen next: fierce ship battles in the sky.

Bossa recently released a free tool on Steam that lets you make your own floating islands, islands that could well appear in the game. The best were rounded up by the studio a few months ago, and if you're wanting to contribute, it's not too late.

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
