A couple of days ago, we put up a gameplay video from our session with Sea of Thieves, the cooperative pirate game coming to Xbox One and Windows PC. Unfortunately, you couldn’t hear the audio of our conversation while playing the game, which would have revealed just how much we were cackling while playing. Why did we forget to drop the anchor, leading to our beloved ship’s dashing against a nearby rock formation? Why did we host a three-sailor jam session instead of managing our ship’s sails? Why did Justin keep showing everyone his map?
Almost every single interaction baked into Sea of Thieves can lead to some master-level griefing. In the above video, Justin and I break down exactly just what makes Sea of Thieves so funny, and what we hope they can pull off in the final version of the game.
Sea of Thieves launches in early 2018.
