About

Search and Destroy Enemy Fleets across the Second World War’s Pacific Theatre. Engage in a tactical game of cat and mouse in this huge open world naval warfare Real Time Strategy.


Plan your own campaign in Victory at Sea Pacific.

Victory at Sea Pacific - the game of naval combat during the Second World War where a player can switch between commanding the entire Pacific theatre to zooming down to take control of individual ships and flights of planes.

Fire the torpedoes from your submarine wolf pack or step onto the Bridge to direct your fleets and change the course of the war.


Bringing an epic approach to real time strategy war gaming, players develop their own story with an open world sandbox mechanic in a desperate attempt to win the World War 2.

The game sees you to take part in a nerve wracking game of cat and mouse as you scour the seas in search of enemy fleets and send submarines to strangle their supply lines.

In Victory at Sea Pacific you can covertly recon enemy positions and launch a large scale amphibious assault by sea and air against the chosen targets.

Fighting a coastal invasion brings together large numbers of ships from landing craft of various types, to multiple flights of aircraft and mighty ships to bombard the enemy positions in an attempt to capture key objectives from the enemy

In addition Victory at Sea Pacific allows you to take command of large squadrons of planes against enemy fleets and send scouts to hunt for the enemy wherever they may be.

You can also train your crews in and out of combat, setting drills and rest periods as well as managing rations and monitoring their morale. Do you push them to breaking point or build a highly skilled team ready for combat.

Choose your fate in Victory at Sea Pacific
In Victory At Sea Pacific your destiny is in your hands, there are no levels, there is no do over. This is Pacific Warfare from day one until ultimate victory is achieved. Every engagement is important, the combat merciless, and the outcome is uncertain.

Upgrade ports and build shipyards to customise and create multiple fleets, sending them to different parts of the Pacific theatre to perform whatever tasks you see fit. Will you send submarines to harass enemy supply ships or send flights of planes to hunt for enemy ships?

Remember you must always be vigilant, it only takes a fleet to slip past you in the night and attack a poorly defended allied port to see the tide turn against you.

How the naval war in the Pacific ends is up to you and the decisions you make.


A huge fleet to choose from.
With over 100 ship classes and counting, representing thousands of vessels, and dozens of types of aircraft and ports spanning the Pacific ocean, Victory At Sea Pacific represents limitless strategic options as you find yourself in total command of the Pacific Theatre during WW2.

Search & Destroy – the real war in the Pacific



In Victory At Sea Pacific the true danger of the Pacific War comes to the fore.

In Evil Twin Artworks’ latest naval combat game, Victory at Sea Pacific, search and destroy takes on new levels of tension with ocean spanning games of cat & mouse between opposing fleets.

When you look at how vast the Pacific Ocean is, you can see how how a task force could launch attack after attack and disappear into the night. Search & Destroy was a dangerous prospect for any admiral with limited resources at their disposal.

Radio communications in the South Pacific were often awful. Many messages sent out were lost or received with such a delay that they were next to useless. Voice comms were short ranged and navies would often rely on talk between ships and line of sight for aircraft units. Fleets would get incomplete or inaccurate reports regarding enemy movements. The South Pacific was widely known as being terrible for communications. Fleets that operated there experienced communication blackouts which were put down to the sheer distance from their bases and the remoteness of the region.



Victory At Sea Pacific captures this sense of the unknown, with its emphasis on recon patrols and hunting down the enemy. Patrols rely on sightings of the enemy, their last known position is marked on the Bridge Map, but without up to date tracking the enemy fleets can easily disappear and reappear where you least expect them.



Players can utilise spotter planes from their ships and airfields as well as sightings from their subs and ships to get an accurate picture of the enemy position. You must keep up your vigilance however, one lapse in judgment could see the enemy slipping past you in the night and hitting strategic targets.

Creating an Open World RTS Sandbox in the Pacific



In Victory At Sea Pacific creating an Open World RTS Sandbox was easier said than done.

With Evil Twin Artworks’ latest RTS game set in World War II, the world had to be big.

We have always tried to play with scale. We enjoy games that feel like they grow with the player. In the original Victory At Sea RTS that was achieved by allowing the player to start with one ship and build a fleet around it.

Having built Victory At Sea Pacific from the ground up we wanted to keep what we really loved from the original but ramp everything up. This meant that the growth in game would involve the player building fleets and commanding the entire Pacific operation, but allowing them to still drill down and command one small RTS skirmish between a few Destroyers.



Victory At Sea Pacific’s emphasis on recon patrols and hunting down the enemy required a large RTS map on which not only the player can move their fleets but the enemy can also sneak convoys and shipping through.

Studying a combination of Satellite data and maps of the Pacific War a large tiled system was created in World Machine. Balance was key, with thousands of tiles generating landmasses, creating a Real Time Strategy game that would feel big whilst not fill up a PC’s hard drive took some back & forth.



The result of this is there are no levels or missions to load in. The Pacific War plays out with players having to upgrade ports and build shipyards to create fleets to meet the growing challenge. Where these fleets are sent is up to the player. Will you send submarines to harass convoys or send flights of planes to hunt for enemy ships?

Regular patrols are important as the enemy can be easily missed. A fleet could hit the Aleutian Islands before a Task Force even knows of its presence. Players must always be vigilant, it only takes a fleet to slip past in the night and attack a poorly defended allied port to see the war turn on its head.

The Planes of Victory At Sea Pacific



Introducing you to the planes in Victory At Sea Pacific.

With the increase in scale in Victory At Sea Pacific we needed to let the player have greater control over planes. In the original Victory At Sea you could tell a carrier to attack a port or fleet and the planes would fly off, do their thing and return. In the new Pacific game, the added threat of enemy fleets sneaking past you meant that players not only needed to tell planes where to hunt but also to target specific objectives. With this came the need to introduce more specialist plane types as well. Based on feedback from the community we are also looking at players being able to swap out payloads.

Remember this is not an exhaustive list. If you have thoughts for other plane types. Come and check the discussion out for yourself.



Plane types available on launch
•   Aichi D3A Val

Victory At Sea Pacific’s Ports & Shipyards



Introducing Ports and Shipyards in Victory At Sea Pacific.

Ports & Shipyards are an important factor in Victory At Sea Pacific.

The lifeblood of the upcoming Victory At Sea Pacific campaign are the 70 plus ports available. With increased control for the player, ports contain stores of fuel, ammunition, and rations, and capturing them is a vital part of winning the war.

When a fleet docks at a port, it will automatically replenish its fuel and rations if any are available. While docked, the fleet will gradually repair structural damage, and gain new crew and aircraft. Players can even decide what aircraft types a carrier will take on.





The ports are vulnerable however, with various military structures, which may be attacked like ships. Destroying a coastal structure deprives the port of its function, although it will repair over time.

They are not defenceless however, and coastal guns and anti air gun emplacements will attack hostile ships and aircraft. Airfields are also available and house flights of aircraft, which may defend the port or scout the area. Searchlights can track hostile aircraft at night, reducing the inaccuracy of anti-air fire against them.

If enough war bonds are available, ports may be upgraded and can eventually add shipyards. New fleets may be constructed at shipyards and ships under construction can be upgraded.

It's time to show you the base of operations!
7 AUGUST   - JAMES EVIL TWIN

We wanted to give you an insight into how Victory Sea Pacific manages the Open World Sandbox Real Time Strategy game from the Bridge.

When we first started developing Victory At Sea Pacific we took the stance that it would be similar to the original, where you focused on one fleet. However as the scale of the game increased it became obvious that to really take advantage of this size change the player would be better off taking control of the entire Pacific Theatre.

One of the hardest aspects of building an open world RTS covering the entire Pacific war was creating a sensible system that would allow the player to manage the whole thing. If we had any brains we would have made the top level turn based, with the individual battles played out in real time.



To prevent it from being overwhelming the player is introduced to the Bridge in stages.

On the Bridge, each navy is split into fleets, or Task Forces. Fleets can be constructed at ports that have a shipyard and then sent out wherever the player wishes. Fleets can be constructed however a player wants allowing them to create specialised Task Forces, some may be great for raiding or recon, or might be better suited to destroying the enemy fleets utterly.

Knowing where the enemy is is another matter as the Pacific is a big place. Enemy fleets will appear once they have been seen, but will fade away after losing visual contact, giving players a last known position to work from.



Once the player has worked out their basic plan they have many options open to them. Some of these options include attacking an enemy fleet or launching an amphibious assault on a port, sending in landing ships that need to be protected until they reach shore.

The enemy is not idle of course and the player may be required to defend allied fleets or ports. To get a better sense of what is going on out there the player can also recon & raid enemy ports, a hit and run tactic that requires less resources but may be enough to draw the enemy in the wrong direction. Once all that is done the fleets can repair and resupply at friendly ports.

Ports have various military structures, which may be attacked like ships. Destroying a coastal structure deprives the port of its function, though it will repair over time, they are not defenceless however, with a formidable array of coastal guns and AAA emplacements to attack hostile ships and aircraft.



There is so much more about the Bridge that could be covered, keep an eye out for more information as we release it!
