Port Royale 4 gameplay looks to be one of the most detailed, strategic games as it prepares to hit the high seas on Sept. 25.

Port Royale is a colonial-era trading simulation set in the Caribbean. Players are placed directly in the limelight as they control every aspect of the economy from the supply, demand, city structure, production, and more.

What exactly has Gaming Minds Studios washed ashore for eager fans? YouTuber PartyElite lays it out quite nicely in this video.

Fortunately, we've also collected the most important bits and condensed them below.

Port Royale 4 Gameplay

Port Royale features a highly customizable experience with an option of country, archetype, and full sandbox mode to adjust to the player's heart's content. The game features four single-player campaigns, 18 historical ship types, 50 different building types and variants, and a satellite-accurate map.

The world features a fully simulated global economy that responds to your every action. With 25 major resources to ferry and control, players have every option to control the flow and supply and demand. They can charge what they like, specialize in a certain item, or even engage in a bit of piracy to frustrate the other countries on the map.

Ports and cities are yet another detailed aspect of the game. In addition to keeping your trade company afloat, players will need to keep track of their cities, citizen happiness, and expansion. The choice to expand, place buildings, and even watch citizens go about their daily tasks all rests in the hands of the player.

From naval battles to peaceful city sunsets, the experience of Port Royale 4 has been fully optimized to put players directly behind the wheel.
