PT Boats: Knights of the Sea is dedicated to a small group of little known - but perhaps some of the most daring - naval combatants of World War II: the torpedo boat crews. Commanding small, fast and agile boats, known as the mosquito fleet, they proved extremely dangerous to bigger vessels due their speed and agility - and the on-board torpedo launchers!
More than once in the history of WWII, a handful of those little deadly boats helped decide the course of an entire battle and executed seemingly impossible missions.
PT Boats: Knights of the Sea is a full-blown naval simulation, and more: combining key elements of a strategic, tactical and action simulator, the game allows the player to control each crew member separately - or command whole groups of ships in a strategic layer!
Leading small crews on tiny ships against a much stronger opponent will let you experience the intricacies of naval combat in its most immediate form. Flexible options will allow you to fully customize the game’s difficulty, and you will be able to choose to focus on specific areas of your ship (such as manning a specific gun), or command the big picture.
All ships and weapons are recreated using authentic historical documents. All game objects use real-life physics, and you will be able to experience such beautiful and realistic sea and ambiance effects as never seen before in a PC game.
PT Boats“fully supports DirectX 10 and multi-core processors. System requirements and the recommended system configuration is listed below.
