The world is covered in water. You managed to gather some pieces of wood, plastic and iron to make a boat. Then some jerk comes and starts shooting at you. Wait, where did they find that huge gun? I want one too!

It sounds like Age of Water in a nutshell. The recently announced MMO from Three Whales Studio looks incredibly promising with customizable boats, bases, and tons of crafting opportunities for you and your friends.

“The ocean destroyed a once great civilization, but people survived and adapted. They built colonies on the roofs of tall buildings and on top of other man-made structures. People travel across the ocean in tiny boats and huge combat ships. The ocean provides everything they need, including extractable resources from the seabed. And yet, the dream of a real land is still alive.

As a huge fan of water-based survival and crafting games, this seems like the holy grail to me. Think of a mix between Raft, Flotsam, Ylands and a touch of Fortnite in a massively multiplayer online environment.

Other promising features of the game include real open world, underworld exploration, vast economy, PvE and PvP, grand sea battles, and more.

Although the game does not yet have a release date, the studio is currently looking for players to join its closed beta. You can currently register for the tests which will begin later this summer.
