Publisher Microids is teaming up with new French studio Savage Level to release Flint: Treasure of Oblivion, a pirate-themed tactical RPG coming in Q4 2024 to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store. Microids has shared a reveal trailer (below) showing protagonist Flint in a “comic strip” styled adventure, with brief gameplay and combat footage.

Despite the press release basically being written wholly in cliched pirate language; brothers and studio heads Aurélien and Maxime Josse state that they aim to avoid caricature, instead targeting an informed and authentic portrayal of the pirate life.

Prepare to weigh anchor alongside Captain Flint, his trusty first mate Billy Bones, and their crew of seasoned sea dogs as they set sail in search of a legendary treasure promisin’ freedom and fortune. With a yarn spun in the traditional style of comic strips, Flint: Treasure of Oblivion invites ye to dive head first into a historically accurate pirate adventure spiced up with a dash of fantasy.

Flint: Treasure of Oblivion Key Features:

  • TURN-BASED TACTICAL COMBAT: A good preparation is key! Choose your crew members with unique abilities, obtain new skills, improve your dices. During the tactical phases, use cards to trigger skills and attributes and influence the fight with dice throws.
  • COMIC-BOOK NARRATIVE: Enjoy a narrative which, beyond the usual codes of comics (onomatopoeia, speech bubbles), offers players original and dynamic comic strips.
  • EXPLORATION: Discover a magnificent world, from the French city of Saint-Malo to the exotic landscapes of central America. Visit diverse environments (cities, camps, jungle, caves…) powered by Unreal Engine 5
  • HISTORICALLY-INSPIRED PIRACY WORLD: The game faithfully recreates a world of piracy, incorporating historical elements (language, costumes, weapons) making the experience even more immersive

Claton fell in love with the genre whilst watching his childhood friend spam GF summons in FF VIII; thinking "wow these graphics are just like real life. Is this really a game"? He’s been chasing that feeling of awe and wonder ever since. Who knows? Maybe he’ll find it right here with RPGFan. When he’s not writing for RPGFan, you’ll find him nonchalantly leaning against the ballroom wall being the “best looking guy here.” …whatever.
