Join the Navy
Experience what it’s like to be a crew member on board a military sailing ship. Raise the sails, launch rowboats, fire the cannons and cooperate to keep your vessel afloat.

Join the Coast Guard
Fend off naval vessels and marine-filled rowboats with chain, round and grape shot as they attempt to capture your fortified position. Guard the shoreline to the last man standing and repel the invader.


Battlefield Roles

{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/28169799/418f08b816217a4a414d57d05a043deb48c7844a.png Unlike our previous posts, this won't be a lengthy one. Rather than waiting for the next major release, we thought it best to go ahead with this hotfix in order to solve an issue affecting a small subset of players equipped with specific AMD GPUs being unable to launch the game. You don't have to apply this 1.7 MB patch to your community server as this client-side hotfix is backwards compatible with Version 1.9.
