Bow to Blood: Last Captain Standing is a massive update Tribetoy has been preparing to release, featuring not only new content for the PlayStation VR version but also greatly expanded support, for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and PlayStation 4. Today, the studio has confirmed that the updated will be rolled out next week.
A single-player procedurally generated airship adventure, Bow to Blood: Last Captain Standing is a strategy title where you take control of an airship in a multi-stage competition being broadcast as a deadly reality TV show. The objective is to pilot your airship and stay alive, what’s not so easy is the staying alive part.
In the heat of aerial naval combat, you need to keep your ship afloat by managing the crew as you defend yourself from enemy ships, forge allegiances, and plot betrayals, as well as engaging in a little treasure hunting from time to time. As the captain, you can use your command console to route power between ship systems to charge and activate critical abilities, overcharge systems, or when things get a little close switching to your pistol can help.
While this is new for PC and console players, PlayStation VR gamers have been battling it out since last summer. So to keep them further entertained Tribetoy is adding a few extra features. The update includes an all-new Hard difficulty setting, more enemies and improved visuals making airship destruction even more satisfying, plus VR players will have the option to switch to the non-VR version if they wish.
“With its mix of naval combat, airship management and diplomacy Bow to Blood is one of the most unique IPs around,” said Matthew Hoseterey Co-Founder and Director of Design of Tribetoy in a statement. “We’re thrilled that a whole new audience will get to discover it in this multiplatform release next month.”
