Cool ship simulator program


Flight simulator programs have made remarkable strides in realism in the past decade. And a similar improvement has occured on the marine simulator side. For those who haven’t seen the type of realism available on a PC, check out Ship Simulator Extremes from VSTEP.

From the press release: VSTEP and Paradox Interactive are proud to announce that the much anticipated simulation game Ship Simulator Extremes has launched today and is now available worldwide through leading retail stores and digital distribution platforms.

With over 550K copies sold, the simulator series returns with a new game that pushes the boundaries of simulation gaming. Ever wondered how it would feel to sail a half a million ton Supertanker through the perfect storm? To sail as a Greenpeace captain and take on illegal whale hunters in the Antarctic? Or to feel the tension as the Coast guard as you evacuate an oil rig crew threatened by disaster? Ship Simulator Extremes offers exciting and realistic missions as you pilot an impressive array of vessels, and live the story of real ship captains.

Pjotr Van Schothorst, CTO VSTEP: “Ship Simulator Extremes is a giant leap for the Ship Simulator series. Featuring new and stunning visuals, immersive storyline campaigns and many new advanced gameplay features, the game marks the beginning of a new evolution for the series and immerses the player even more in the realism of being an actual ship  captain on one of its accurately simulated vessels. We hope our players will love playing it as much as we have enjoyed making it!”

Ship Simulator Extremes is now available worldwide through retail and download for an SRP of $51. For more information, visit
