Back in June 2015, Rare and Microsoft announced their new game, Sea of Thieves, at E3.
We don’t know much about the game at this point, other than that it is about pirates, it has some kind of multiplayer or online co-op, it has a fun art style, and the people at Rare and Microsoft are super excited about it.
Microsoft executive Kudo Tsunodo told Official Xbox Magazine that;
(Sea of Thieves) is gonna be the best game that Rare has ever made.”
Those are big words considering all the legendary studio has done in the past, from Banjo-Kazooie to Perfect Dark. Tsunodo went on to say that;
I think with Sea of Thieves, what you’re really going to see as you find out more about the game is that it’s also about allowing people to create their own gaming memories. It’s about enabling people to create their own stories through limitless possibilities, and I think that’s what Rare has always done a great job of historically; it is great at creating these super emotional memories and attachments that people have to games.”
In the announcement trailer, we see a player explore the jungle, find a pirate ship docked in a bay, sailing the ship, fighting another ship, someone walking the plank, sharks in the water, traversing the jungle at night by lantern, and opening a treasure chest which seemed to trigger some skeletons to come to life.
Everything about this excites me. What do you think of Sea of Thieves? Leave a comment below!
