TopWare's Raven's Cry
now offers a release date for Raven's Cry
, as publisher lists
October 24, 2013 as when to expect Octane's upcoming piratey action/adventure to
arrive for Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 (thanks
). Here' a refresher on the game, which apparently does not feature
anyone resembling Jack Sparrow or Captain Hook:
Ravenís Cry is a dark
action-adventure that will challenge the image of pirates in popular culture.
Game events are seamlessly interwoven with historical ones to create an
authentic, thrilling narrative. The game begins when Christopher Raven embarks
on his vengeful quest to track down and kill the men who murdered his family.
Ravenís Cry thoroughly immerses players in a lavishly detailed world rich with
treachery and adventure. The sinister beauty of the 17th Century Caribbean is
revealed in the rolling emerald waves and their secrets, kept far beneath; in
the dark alleys and curved, cobbled roads, all teeming with murderous miscreants
and loudly drunken braves, the prophets of the bottle, the blade, and the
flintlock gun. The historically accurate architecture and in-game events will
flavor the three major cities found in Ravenís Cry with the atmosphere players
crave, as they traverse from the unsavory pirate holdfast of Port Royal to the
elegant avenues of luscious Havana, to a lost Aztec City deep in the jungles of
the Spanish Main.
