Earlier this year at E3 when Sea Of Thieves and Skull and Bones was announced – I was super excited and so were many others. There are NOT a whole lot of video games out there, especially for the Xbox One that are pirate-themed games. I think of one of the biggest reasons 2 games decided to get made was because people saw how popular and well-loved Black Flag was!
Both pirate games were supposed to come out this year. But, unfortunately, both got pushed back. Skull and bones will supposedly be coming out 2018 and Sea of Thieves should be coming out in 2018 as well, around March.
It should be noted that Skull and Bones and Sea Of Thieves are 2 very different games. In fact, Sea Of Thieves has an almost cartoon look to it. But, I don’t care! It still looks like a lot of fun and I will definitely be pre-ordering it!
“Sea of Thieves is a pirate-themed action-adventure cooperative multiplayer game played from a first-person perspective. The game features cross-platform play between Windows-based personal computers and Xbox One video game consoles. A group of players travel and explore an open world via a pirate ship and assume different roles such as steering, hoisting sails, navigation, firing cannons and other tasks.
Players will embark on quests, collect loot and engage in combat with other players. Sea of Thieves is a shared world game, which means groups of players will encounter each other regularly throughout their adventures. The game has a cartoonish art style and exaggerated physics that allow players to be shot out of ship cannons.”
When they first showed videos of Sea Of Thieves it looked like a really fun game, and as they continue to put out videos like the one below, we get to know more about the game and what it entails.
The trailer shows some new footage for Sea of Thieves. The theme of the trailer is Be More Pirate, but you’ll see Be More Pirate, Be More Banana, Be More Puking, Be More Pillaging, and Be More Being More.
