Any and all of you mmorpg fans out there felt that excitement rush down your spine when sea of thieves was first revealed during the Microsoft E3 conference. Rare has an exciting new video with more details just for you.
Rare has released the first in what looks to be a series of Sea of Thieves videos very smartly named “Inn-side Story.” The inaugural episode features executive producer Joe Neate and design director Gregg Mayles talking about what the game is.
To me Sea of Thieves is basically every pirate show or film that you’ve seen, but you can actually play and be immersed in. You can be the pirate you want. That’s the promise of the game for me.
Says Joe Neate. Gregg mayles further adds
Living the pirate life is how I’d describe what we’re trying to achieve, We want players to really immerse themselves into what it’s like to be a pirate. The sailing, the fighting, the drinking, the camaraderie, we want to give players all of that.
The duo continues too explain how Sea of Thieves is meant to be played with friends and how it makes the group feel like part of a genuine pirate adventure. And frankly, wouldn’t we all appreciate a good pirate adventure after the not so recent Assassins Creed: Black Flag, which, in my opinion, was the greatest pirate game ever made. Then again its the only one i’ve played, the hell do i know.
Sea of thieves will follow the new exclusivity trend of Microsoft by being available for both Xbox and PC like pretty much every upcoming Xbox game.
Sea of Thieves is an Xbox Play Anywhere game. That means if you buy it (digitally) on Xbox One, you will get the PC version for free and vice versa. Microsoft has also stated that this game is the best game that developer Rare has ever made.
The Xbox Australia Twitter account previously indicated the game will launch in February 2017, however, the tweet was later removed. A Microsoft representative also made a statement that didn’t confirm or deny the reported February 2017 release window for Sea of Thieves.
Our next goal beyond E3 is a closed beta where we’ll get some of our keenest fans involved in playing the game and providing feedback to the studio. We have nothing further to share at the moment but will have more details in the near future.
