Meanwhile, we are working on additional features. Some of them will be available to you all, while others will be part of a new DLC coming in the next months, adding a new game mode.

So gameplay is set in the golden era of American whaling. Hence the early 19th century. Nantucket also takes place shortly after the events in the Pequod.
