Fancying a bit of an early 2000s throwback on your Xbox Series X|S console later this year? Well, publisher SNEG has pulled Captain Blood from the jaws of death for a Fall 2024 release - a game that was first in development for the original Xbox.

This is an old school hack-and-slash game with a distinct pirate theme, and you can definitely tell it's of a certain era, shall we say. Still, we're all for it to be honest - this looks like it'd be a nice change of pace in 2024.

It's actually got some Xbox 360 vibes as well this one, which makes sense given that Captain Blood was last seen in 2010; where it re-emerged as planned Xbox 360 game. Anyway, now it's planned for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S later this year, and here's what to expect from the title:

"Captain Blood is a pirate-themed action game set on the Spanish Main in the 17th century, where you step into the boots of a fearsome pirate on a quest for gold and glory. Expect wild adventures with cannon firing, pistol shooting, swashbuckling sword fights, and plenty of pirate shenanigans. This action-packed hack'n'slash features fierce hand-to-hand combat, hordes of enemies, and a classic fighting system with flashy combos and epic finishers.

Prepare for intense deck battles where you can fire the ship's cannons and fend off blood-thirsty boarding crews. Collect gold to upgrade your fighting skills, buy new weapons, and become the most feared buccaneer on the high seas. Fight for wealth and glory!"
