The complete changelog:
Update 1.2 - Dark Delights
Man O' War: Corsair - Warhammer Naval Battles - Fraser Evil Twin
This update brings the Slaanesh Chaos campaign and a feature much requested by the community: ship capture, as well as a new camera view option for all ships.
Transform the old world into a hedonistic paradise for the glory of the Prince of Pleasure. More than just destruction is your goal as you corrupt the minds of the enemy crew and send your acolytes to spread the unspeakable joys of service to Slaanesh, turning the human ports into hives of decadence.
Independent captains and Slaanesh captains are now able to capture enemy ships.
For the independent captain, as long as it's something your crew can steer you can put a prize crew aboard and have them take the ship back to port. Beware that the owning faction will attack the ship on sight. Once in port you can either sell the ship or pay to have the shipwrights repair the damage, clean the barnacles, and replace the rusty old cannon so that you can sail the ship anew. Be careful to keep it out of sight of its previous owners still (though rumour has it that some of the less law abiding ports can help with that).
For Slaanesh, capture is a means to an end - capture an enemy ship (ideally with half its crew already on your side from the Radiance of Slaanesh) and send your most human-looking cultists aboard, back to the ships home port. On reaching port they'll infiltrate the town and start to corrupt it. With enough cultists and a bit of time the port will become defenceless, its citizens too intent on their revels to care about anything else. At this point you may either leave them to praise Slaanesh with their carnal ways or burn the port to the ground as an offering.
Ship upgrades no longer have a limit based on the type - instead all ship upgrades come with a cargo space cost. You can choose to sacrifice more of your carrying capacity in order to build up those guns and reinforce every surface you can find.
Press 'V' (or Y button on gamepad) when sailing to toggle between standard Captain sailing view and a zoomed out Tactical view which shows your entire ship.
