Release Date Announcement

Airships: Conquer the Skies
1 Aug 2018, 5:16 p.m.

I am happy to announce that Airships: Conquer the Skies will be released on August 16, 2018.

It's been five years of development, nearly all of it with public builds available, going from a ship construction prototype with weirdly greenish-tinged wood to its current state, with multiplayer, dragons, landships, and well, more ship design.

Today also marks the release of dev 10, the final major pre-release version, featuring conquest multiplayer, a tech tree, and graphical improvements.

Here's a bunch of the cool stuff the game now contains:

  • Explosions
  • Free-form ship design where you're not limited to some fixed layout
  • Historically authentic heraldry
  • Dragon taming
  • Giant sky squid that eat your crew
  • Grappling hooks
  • Giant land-walkers
  • An in-game editor for challenge missions
  • A combat replay system that lets you re-enter the fight on either side
  • Multiplayer map conquest
  • Extensive modding support with more than a hundred mods, adding a huge number of of extra modules and other things
  • Explosions

From now until release, I'll be concentrating on improving conquest mode and the game tutorial. After, I will of course continue supporting the game with bug fixes, balance patches, and user interface improvements.
