Summer may be the best time to enjoy ocean adventures, and now you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home, thanks to the folks at Joycity, creators of Oceans & Empires. The old-timey naval MMO is getting a sizable new June Grand Update that brings a host of new gameplay elements, just in time for vacation.
Players will team up this summer to take on Aestaros, a new Boss Monster challenging adventures to a Rally Attack. Players have to work together in perfect unison to take down the beast, but fortunately that’s made easier with the addition of the new global chat system that lets all players talk, regardless of their server. A new preset function works to streamline combat, too, allowing players to swap between Skill palettes with a single tap of their finger. If you're itching to get new loot in Alliance battles, you now only need to be VIP level four, rather than eight, to “Receive All” on Alliance rewards.
Ships get a boost too, now that you can add figureheads to give your ship a unique look and new buffs. You can rename each ship you add to your fleet, too, to keep things nice and organized. There are other new buffs and items to discover outside of these figureheads, though, including Ship DurabilityBuffs, along with items such as Voyage Speed Up 75% and Random Equipment Ticket.
Smaller adjustments like enhanced purchase methods and the option to retrieve inactive Alliance Buildings give even more incentive to dust off your battleship and set sail.

Intuitive touch controls aim to let players make light work of traversing the plentiful nooks and crannies present in Leonardo’s library and workshop, with simple taps and swipes placing you at the forefront of discovery. Examine every model, escape devious traps, and solve intricate riddles. Will you do Da Vinci proud as his one and only protégé?
