For the better part of the last several months, Microsoft has been engaging their hype machine in order to prop up the swashbuckling adventure title, ‘Sea of Thieves’. Now, the game is getting headline news as more and more players get to experience it first hand. Recently, Microsoft unveiled a brand new trailer to promote the title and it starred Sean Astin, of ‘Lord of the Rings’ fame, as a museum curator with a lisp and thirst for pirate swag.
In ‘Sea of Thieves’, gamers will be given the chance to roam the high seas in their own ship. This ship will be the vessel that takes gamers onto quests, into battle, and into collaborative events with other players. Players will primarily be interacting in an open world but they’ll be wanting to look out for the Merchant Alliance, the Order of Souls and the Gold Hoarders for the primary means of gaming emphasis.
The goal in ‘Sea of Thieves’, it appears, is to create an atmospheric game based on exploration and a love of high adventure. Gamers will be able to level up a multitude of different statistical categories in order to improve their swag, improve their fighting ability, and improve their gaming experience. The cinematic trailer featuring Sean Astin only hints at the greater world that the game is offering and it could be just the right flavor of adventurous freedom that gamers are looking for in a new title for 2018.
‘Sea of Thieves’ will be launching on March 20th, in an official capacity, for both PC and the Xbox One. The game will be sold for $60 as the base price or it can be acquired via the Xbox Game Pass Subscription which costs $10 per month or you can buy a completely new XB1 and get ‘Sea of Thieves’ thrown in for free. ‘Sea of Thieves’ will be the first part of Microsoft’s exclusive first-party release package that will go straight into the Game Pass library.
