Frequently asked questions

What is Blazing Sails?


Blazing Sails is a pirate battle royale game! Create your own unique pirate and ship. Band together with other players to command your mighty vessel! Navigate land and sea for loot, resources, unique weapons and ship upgrades. Hunt down all other pirate crews in fast-paced naval battles and sink every other ship to win the skirmish!




Where can I purchase Blazing Sails?


You can buy Blazing Sails here on Steam.




Your game looks like that other pirate game. What is different?


Blazing Sails also is a stylised pirate game. Gameplay-wise Blazing Sails has many differences. Our pirate game focusses entirely on fast-paced PVP action. Blazing Sails contains 20+ unique weapons, private servers, a fully customisable character and ship, ship upgrades (wheel upgrades, capstan upgrades, cannon upgrades) and much more. There are of course many other differences in the overall feel of the game.




Do you have a press kit?


We sure do! You can find it here.




Am I allowed to stream or record and share footage of the game?


You are allowed to record and share any and all footage of the game. Please do keep in mind and mention Blazing Sails is still in Early Access. So, you could encounter some bugs or other issues.




What are some features you want to add in the future?


We would like to add more ship types, much more customisation options, more weapons, more unique islands, emotes, a female character, controller support, extra language options, different weather conditions, etc… We also love hearing suggestions from the community. Feel free to suggest stuff you would like to see in Blazing Sails via our Discord!




Do you have an Early Access roadmap?


Yes! You can find it here.




Can I play Blazing Sails on PC only?


For the moment, yes. We want to focus all our attention on our Early Access Steam edition first.




Does your game offer controller support?


Not yet, but that is definitely something we’d like to add soon.




Do you offer servers in my region?


Our servers cover NA-East, NA-West, EU, Russia, Asia, South America and Oceania.




Will you add VOIP?


Yes! We encountered some last-minute issues during our testing phase where using voice-chat resulted in a game crash. We’re looking into reimplementing voice chat asap!




How do I get more pirate and ship cosmetics?


By playing of course ye’ silly scallywag! At the moment you have a high chance to get an item when you win a match and a low chance when you lose a match. We’ll improve this system over time.




I played the game and I received 2 of the same items. Is this normal?


Yes, duplicates are possible. We’ll add a way to exchange them in the near future.




I heard you guys hand out free keys on Discord, is this still a thing?


No, that was back in the day when we were still testing our game before our Early Access launch. Now you’ll have to buy the game on Steam in order to play.




Are you currently looking for voice actors, or other people to help?


Not at the moment.




I heard Get Up Games is a Belgian studio. Is it true you eat waffles all day?


Pirates drink rum. Belgians eat waffles.
