Zen Studios will launch their strategy RPG Dread Nautical on PlayStation 4, Switch, Xbox One, and Windows via the Epic Games Store on April 29, 2020. No word on how long the PC version will remain an Epic Games Store exclusive. Previously only available on Apple Arcade, the game combines rogue-like elements with isometric turn based RPG gameplay.
Players will take on the role of one of four survivors on the cruise ship Hope. The ship is under attack by supernatural beings looking to chow down on the passenger and crew. Players will need to make their way through the 20 decks of the ship to escape their vacation from hell. There are 11 survivors that can be recruited along the way, but they will not come along easily. Players will need to rely on their social wits to convince them to band together as a group.
