At their E3 conference today, Microsoft Studio loaded up it's cannon and gave us a taste of the pirate's life with "Sea of Thieves" with a new trailer and a gameplay trailer shows off the game mechanics and makes it seem really fun Officially, this game was announced at E3 last year, but there really hasn't been much news on the open-world pirate MMO.
With the new trailer, we learn that there are threats besides other pirates (sharks!), things to explore in the depths (shipwrecks!) and supernatural creatures that will probably have to be dealt with (merfolk!).
While the music was nice ( "We Shall Sail Together" composed by Robin Beanland and performed by Anna Hon) and the pictures were nice, this particular trailer really didn't do much to sell me on "Sea of Thieves." The gameplay trailer, however, completely changed my tune:
While people might have been turned off by the silly chatter by the people playing, I think they did a fantastic job of showing you how much potential for fun there is in "Sea of Thieves." While I watched, I imagined playing with a group of my close friends as we tried to work together to navigate rocks, do battle with other players or explore deserted islands.
You can also drink grog in game and get your character drunk, and that just seems like a good time.
"Sea of Thieves" doesn't have an official release date yet, but it looks like we won't see it until 2017. It will be available on the XBox One and Windows 10 PC systems.
